Sensory Friendly Experiences

Wexford Winterland, Wexford on Ice               Wexford Winterland, Santa's North Pole Experience



Wexford Winterland provides a number of dedicated sensory friendly sessions in both Wexford on Ice and Santa’s North Pole Experience as follows:


Wexford on Ice

Sensory and wheelchair family skate sessions take place every Saturday morning from 10am – 11am.  These sessions give those who wouldn’t normally get the chance to go skating to have their very own special session, where the music and lighting is turned down.  It’s fun for all the family to get involved – parents and guardians can join their children without skates.  Wheelchair users can take their wheels directly onto the ice!

Date:  Every Saturday from December 1st 2018 until January 5th 2019
Time:  10am – 11am
Tickets:  These sessions are free, we just ask for a donation to our charity fund on the day. There is no need to book in advance, just turn up!
