What a smashing summer of amazing events we’ve had so far and we’ve a lot more to look forward to! From Marlay Park to the Iveagh Gardens, the Aviva and not forgetting Croke Park for plenty music and GAA action.
Where ever you are going make sure you plan your journey to and from the venue well in advance and give yourself an additional 2 hours travel time! It may seem crazy but there is a huge volume of people heading to these gigs so traffic delays are inevitable!

As a city centre location The Iveagh Gardens is serviced by Dublin Bus, Luas and Dart. Entry is usually available through the gates at Harcourt Street.
The Script with Pharrell Williams take to the big stage in Croker on June 20th and later in the summer July 24th and 25th Ed Sheeran will be entertaining the crowds at Croke Park.

Getting to Croke Park is relatively straight forward as it’s close to the city centre and is serviced by bus, dart and trains. Access to the stadiums is restricted to specific gates based on your seat so make sure to check before arriving to the area.
Gig of the summer happens in the Aviva with AC/DC hitting the stage on July 1st! There is no parking around the stadium so to make life easy and get an NRC to and from the gig! After the show you can usually get a taxi from outside the ground by simply flagging a taxi down. The entry points to the stadium for ticket holders are colour coded – either red, green, orange, blue or purple – with each colour designating the route that needs to be taken to access the stadium. You will also have to exit the stadium by the same colour coded route.
SO there is plenty to choose from this summer. Just plan your route well in advance and have the NRC number 01 6772222 on your phone and go have some fun!
