How To Get There

expect traffic and long delays. You can tune into SPIN South West the entire journey to Offaly via the SPIN South West Radio App. You can download it here. 

Trains

Tullamore Train Station is 10 minutes from the site and a shuttle bus will drop you at the entrance gate.
Shuttle Bus fees; €5 Children return ticket (under 16)
€9 Adult return ticket
€20 Family return ticket (2 adults & max. 3 children)

Driving

If you are driving to the event, you are advised to factor in at least double the normal journey time
due to heavy volumes of traffic.

If you have a vehicle pass make sure it is clearly displayed on the front windscreen of your vehicle as
vehicles not displaying passes clearly may be directed into outer car parks.

Follow directional signage to the venue – do not use GPS.

Note the colour of the over-head flying blimp and the number/colour /animal sign in your car park on entry in order to find it easily on exit.

We recommend taking a picture on your phone of where you parked so not to forget or lose your car! 

Routes

The AA has made this very handy video explaining the colour co-ordinated routes that have been put together for motorists.

     

MAPS

A map of the site is available on the NPA Website.

It has been advised not to use GPS to get to the Ploughing. 

Here's the playlist to get you there;

Weather

The weather is great at the minute with Storm Helene making an appearance.
