Festival Day location

Experience Japan Festival is held in the beautiful grounds of Farmleigh House in the Phoenix Park. We strongly advise you to travel by public transport or bike where possible, as there can be long queues for parking! Follow us on Twitter or Facebook for updates on the festival day.

Getting to Festival Site


We’re delighted that Dublin Bus will provide a free shuttle bus service to the Festival Day in Farmleigh on Sunday 23rd April! Buses will leave every ten minutes between 11:30 and 18:00. The pick up point is stop 7078 on Parkgate Street. Buses will drop you at the Chesterfield roundabout just outside Farmleigh. A return service to Parkgate Street is also available.

Alernatively, Dublin Bus Route 37 will drop you at Castleknock Gate (stop number 1669). Enter the Phoenix Park and take the narrow pedestrian pathway through the field to your immediate right. Walk down this path until you reach a road. Turn right and you should see the gates of Farmleigh a short distance away. This is about a 15 minute walk.


Farmleigh is inside the Phoenix Park.  There is free car, coach, and motorcycle parking on site. Please note there is a five-minute walk from the car park to the House and a seven-minute walk from the car park to the Gallery and Gardens. Full driving directions are here.

The closest Luas stop is Heuston Station. Farmleigh is about a 30-40 minute walk from here!
You could also hire a Dublin Bike and cycle.
