When you say you tried to clear the drain holes, do you mean they are blocked or you do not know. There are four, one at each front corner and also one either side at the rear of the sunroof. To see if they are blocked pour a little water into the channel. You should see it drip out the front near the wheel arch and at the rear the pipes run out just inside the rear bumper. You cannot miss it running out if they are clear.

YIKES!!!
Don't go poking wire down it...You can push the drain pipe off where it connects at the top or poke a hole in it.
Use a spotlight and look in each corner. The best option is if the blockage can't be seen from the top, to find the outlet bottoms & blow through them, although quite often with a spotlight, you can see stuff caught in them at the top (in each corner) and carefully remove with a pair of pointy nosed pliers or similar.
I have heard it suggested that if any kind of wire is used as a method of dislodging a blockage, then the spring coiled flexible curtain type of wire is best but definitely never use anything too solid.

My sister had the same problem with her Saxo-the water was dripping by the interior light/ sunroof control. The fault turned out to be with the aerial. The rubber seal around the base had worn away on one side allowing the water to drip through and collect above the console.
