How to get here
From the Southside:
Driving into the city centre through Merrion on the Rock Road, follow the coast along Sandymount Strand as if going to the East Link Bridge. When you get to Irishtown (you would normally turn right here to go to the East Link), keep going STRAIGHT through this junction, this will lead you into Ringsend Village. Follow the road through Ringsend, heading for the City Centre. You will go over a small hump backed bridge, and immediately there is a junction. Turn RIGHT here, the Dockyard is the gate at the end of the road.
From the Northside:
Come into town on the North Strand Rd, leading you by Connolly Train Station and the IFSC. Cross the Liffey and immediately turn LEFT onto the South Quays. Follow the quays until you get to the RIGHT TURN into Lime Street. At the next traffic lights, turn left onto Pearse St. Follow the road, across the brigde over the Grand Canal Dock, passing the Dublin Bus depot on your left-hand side, to the next junction (look out for our sign), and turn LEFT here, the Dockyard is the gate at the end of the road.
From the City Centre:
Get onto PEARSE St, heading out of town towards Ringsend. When you pass the Dublin Bus depot on your left-hand side, to the next junction (look out for our sign), and turn LEFT here, the Dockyard is the gate at the end of the road.
From the Country:
It could not be simpler! No matter where you come from, when you get to Dublin you will hit the M50 motorway. Follow the M50 until you get to the Red Cow Roundabout / Naas Road Junction (or you may already be coming in on the Naas Rd.), and then take this turn off the M50 and follow the Naas Rd. in towards the city centre. When the Naas Road hits the GRAND CANAL, turn right and follow the canal. From now on just keep driving STRAIGHT through every junction, keeping the canal on your left. Eventually you will lose sight of the canal, but keep going STRAIGHT through every junction. This will lead you onto South Lotts Road. At the end of this road there is a junction. (Landmarks: Shelbourne Pk Dog Track on your right-hand side). Again go STRAIGHT, the Dockyard is the gate at the end of the road.
