Horkans Castlebar has everything you need to get Christmas started. 

Firstly we bring the magic. Visiting Horkans is a magical Christmas experience, sit in Santa’s Sleigh, or why not try out his big red chair for size? What’s new this year? 

See our hand-crafted Nativity scene created by our very talented Horticulturist, Tara. End your visit at the Bay Leaf Cafe for a Hot chocolate and a big slice of cake. You’ll be feeling Christmassy in no time!
