Car Parking & Accessibility

Details for car parking are found below. Information for 2019 will be updated soon. 

The RDS operates a Park & Ride facility from UCD college, designated car park for people with disabilities, and Muckross College.

A shuttle bus service operates regularly at aprox. 15 minute (depending on traffic) intervals from 7am - 9.00pm daily, with the last bus leaving the Intercontinental Hotel at 9pm each night. Both car parks will close at 9.30pm sharp each night during the Show.

Alternatively, disc parking is in operation on many streets close to the RDS.

Bags and Luggage

Anyone entering the Showgrounds may be subject to random bag searches.


Details for accessibility are found below.

The RDS is mindful of issues of accessibility at all times of the year, including during the Dublin Horse Show. Visitors to the RDS that have accessibility issues can speak to the information desk located at the front of the Main Hall for any questions or queries they may have about assistance at this year’s Show.

This year we will be auditing our accessibility provisions that are in place for the Show, and in addition, we are looking for feedback from visitors to the Show on their experience. We are looking for feedback from any visitor to the Show who may have reduced mobility, issues around way-finding, or any other access issues.

Feedback can be emailed to or simply message us on Facebook.

We look forward to using your feedback to help improve visitor experience in 2019.
