Toy store Christmas opening hours changes due to new restrictions – Smyths, Argos, World of Wonder and more

Ireland will enter level five restrictions this week in a bid to halt an increase in coronvirus cases.

The country faces a Christmas lockdown with Taoiseach Micheal Martin yesterday confirming tough new restrictions from December 24.

The good news for parents is that non-essential and essential retailers will likely stay open for now with no plans to close toy stores before the last-minute shopping rush tonight and Christmas Eve.
