The Coca Cola Truck is back and touring around Ireland for Christmas


When you're a kid-- and let's face it, when you're an adult too-- it doesn't really feel like Christmas is coming until you see the magical red truck on your TV.

In recent years, the soft-drinks giant has brought that magic to life with its Coca Cola Christmas tour, where kids and adults alike can see the iconic truck in all its glory-- and get a free Coke while you're at it.

This year, the holidays are coming to Ireland-- to no less than 7 different locations over the course of two weeks.

Those ready to get into the spirit can visit the second-most recognisable red-coloured Christmas tradition in Galway, Mayo, Waterford, Cork, two days in Belfast and in two different locations in Dublin.

This means people from other counties will have to do a bit of travelling to see it-- but compared to Santa's round-the-world-in-24-hours job, that's practically nothing.

With a six-hour slot in each area, from 2pm - 8pm, here's the full list of where the magic truck is stopping:


Galway Retail Park, Headford Road: November 30th

Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Dublin 8: December 1st

Ballina Military Barracks, Mayo: December 4th

Belfast Custom house, Queen's Square: December 7th & 8th

Mahon Point, Mahon, Cork: December 13th

Winterval, Bolton Street, Waterford: December 14th

Swords Pavilions, Co Dublin: December 15th
