Join us on board our magical Santa Train which will be departing from a very special platform in Dublin Connolly. Our train will be looking festive with Christmas Decorations, we will have Christmas music playing as you board. Once we set off on our 40 minute journey out to Maynooth along the banks of the Royal Canal, a very special man will be travelling through the train handing out selection boxes and sweets for all the boys and girls. Santa will pose for some photos and take any last special requests for the big day. After a chance to take some photos at Maynooth, we retrace our steps back to Dublin Connolly.
