Christmas at Butler House

Butler House Garden comes alive this festive season with an enchanting event for friends and family. Begin your journey in Castle Yard where the twinkle of stars will lead you to the pearl light tunnel that opens into Butler House Garden’s magical experience.

Our garden transforms at dusk as light installations come to life. Kids will love the toy soldiers, reindeer and the frosty winter pond at the heart of the garden complete with a skating snowman! Take and “Elfie” with friends in Santa’s slay or meet Santa himself in his outdoor grotto. The glittering trees will lead you to the wishing path where you will find Santa has left a magic post-box for your letters and wishes.

Inside the house you will find kids activities, hot chocolate and cookies by the fire. In Butlers Pantry treat yourself to mulled cider or wine with a cheese board or light bite. Book a festive lunch or Afternoon Tea in our newly opened Tea Rooms.

So, come visit this unique destination in our secluded walled garden, enjoy festive fare, music and some time away from the crowds to soak up a magical Christmas atmosphere in the very heart of Kilkenny City Centre.
