Parking near RDS
« on: June 19, 2018, 01:13:46 PM »
Hi all, just wondering about where to park near the RDS. Picture This are playing there on Saturday and I was wondering where you could get away towards the Dublin Port Tunnel. Also how much is the toll for the Dublin Port Tunnel? Thanks in advance.
The woman in red has the car parked on the slope.

Ä3 off peak for Port Tunnel, Ä1 40 for East Link. You could park around Irishtown, Ringsend, Sandymount. 20 min walk to the RDS. 

There is parking in the RDS.

You'd think someone would invent something to answer simple questions like the one in the OP, could be a few euro in it as well. Just a thought.

Parking along Herbert Park, Sandymount Avenue or Simmonscourt Road (Donnybrook side) is free on Saturdays I think, but they may be too close to the RDS for getting away quickly unless you're out fairly quickly, and Simmonscourt may be closed off anyway. Sandymount Avenue might be the better option because you could get out to Sandymount without facing into the RDS traffic and across to the Port Tunnel from there.

I used to always park at the Hockey Club nearby is it Bective?  Handy spot, quite cheap and pretty secure.

Taking the young lad to Foo Fighters at the RDS tomorrrow. They are advising that people don't try to park nearby and Gardai will be operating "traffic management". Any idea how close I could get and then walk? I was thinking of coming in by 3Arena to Ringsend and parking as close as I can get to Simmonscourt Road? Or would I be better taking the hit and parking in Irishtown or Sandymount and walking in?

Why not take the Dart to Landsdowne or Sandymount?

Iím doing similar for Post Malone (whoever he is) on Thursday for my two daughters, but taking my dogs down also so was hoping to drop them off and take the pups for a good dander in one of the local parks.

Not fussed on letting them on the Dart, Iíll be there before 6 so was hoping to get in close!
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

I'll be planning to get in before 6 too. The Dart from Malahide or somewhere might be a decent option on the way in but not sure how good the service is later on. Might just chance my arm and hopefully don't get clamped  :D

I used to park at the local hockey club is it Pembroke wanderers? But last time I went it was full
And I ended up parking at the rugby club a few hundred years down the main road. Guards were stopping traffic for us to get out after the show and I was home in no time.

MR2, Parking was no bother earlier. I went in through Sandymount village and parked in a residential street called Wilfield Park. Roads were closed from Sandymount station so it's as close as I could get. Less than 10 min walk.
