Longitude Advice:

While reception is pretty good at Marlay Park, it is still advised to download, print or save your ticket before arriving.

Like most music gigs you should allow plenty of time for concert entry procedures, ticket check and searches on approach as well as once inside the festival.

Longitude has a strict No Alcohol Policy implemented on all transport and buses which are travelling to the venue so make sure to not arrive to the festival intoxicated as you will not be permitted entry.

If you are meeting anyone or lose the people you’re with, you should arrange to meet them at one of the meeting points on site. There is one at each of the arena entrances.

Camping is not allowed. You will need to find your own accommodation if you plan on staying overnight as Longitude does not have the necessary facilities in place for camping.

How do I get there?

You can grab the Luas Green line from the city centre to Dundrum from where there will be a shuttle bus leaving every half hour from 2pm.

It is also possible to walk the 35-minute stroll to Marlay Park from the Luas stop.

If driving from Dublin city centre you can go via Ranelagh, Clonskeagh, Goatstown, Sandyford, Grange Road and then on to College Road for car parks.

From the M50, exit at Junction 12 interchange, signposted R113 Knocklyon/ Firhouse. Follow Scholarstown Road, Ballyboden Way, Taylors Lane, turn right onto Whitechurch Road and then left on to College Road.
