Match Day & Concert Parking

We advise anyone travelling to matches or concerts to use public transport wherever possible. Bus, rail, DART & LUAS all bring you to within a 15 minute walk, or less, from the stadium.

Croke Park is situated in a residential area that has limited parking and our neighbours have the right to expect priority on this parking. The area is monitored by Dublin City Council parking enforcement and illegally parked cars may be clamped or towed away.

Increased traffic volumes and local road closures before, during and after events cause significant delays in the area, so it is important to plan ahead.  For those who require parking close to the stadium, there are a number of options available along with various park-and-ride facilities and city centre carparks located further away.
