You could be the next Santa – here’s how

Sarah Finnan

Hidden Dublin Tours is looking for Mr Claus…well the Irish equivalent, given that the real deal is otherwise engaged.

Running from December 1st to 24th, The Bus That Stole Christmas Dublin Panto Tour is seeking “a very jolly man” to join the team and step into Santa’s snow boots.

Described as “Dublin’s most unique Christmas experience”, the 45-minute long tour brings guests on a storytelling adventure through good deeds and bad to see if you can convince the elves to put your name on the nice list.

Turns out the Christmas letters are missing though, so you’ll be tasked with finding them again and saving Christmas. No pressure

Applicants hoping to be the next Kris Kringle must be cheerful, energetic, professional and possess experience working with children and/or events.
Previous Santa experience is preferred but not absolutely necessary.

Assuming the role of old Saint Nick comes quite well paid too – €14 an hour to be precise.
