As part of our Medieval Festival we are encouraging people wherever possible to leave the car at home and use our excellent Public Transport  system of buses & trains. Both are a short hop to the Medieval Festival. This will help to avoid traffic jams and make for a more pleasant visit to the festival for all.

Check out the following websites for bus times to and from the event: - Dublin Coach - Bus Eireann - Irish Rail
7 minute walk from the Train Station to the Festival

The organisers have included a listing of car parks (some of which you will have to pay a small parking fee as denoted by €€€).
