How can I get there?

The Cork venue is located in the Cork Cricket ground on Mardyke walk next to Fitzgerald Park.

Parking is limited in the area, however the venue is ideally located within walking distance of the city centre and all major bus routes. There will also be taxi rank outside, once the event is over.


Two nearby large car parks are located close to the festival. Two of which are owned by University College Cork located on Goal Walk & the UCC Western Gateway building on Western Road. Both of these car parks remain open until 10.30pm. In addition, Sacred Heart Church has parking for over 200 vehicles and offers overnight parking facilities.

We ask that patrons do not drive to the event & respect local residents at all times
