Festival Day location

Experience Japan Festival is held in the beautiful grounds of Farmleigh House in the Phoenix Park. Public transport or bike is the primary way to get to the festival, as car access is EXTREMELY limited. Follow us on Twitter or Facebook for updates on the festival day.

Getting to Festival Site


Thie year we have shuttle buses running from Parkgate Street. Buses will run between 11:00am and 5:30pm.


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 the road. Turn right and you will see the gates of Farmleigh a short distance away. This is about a 15 minute walk.


Farmleigh is inside the Phoenix Park.  There are 300 free car spaces on site. We encourage all festival goers to prioritise the parking needs of people with access or mobility issues, and take public transport wherever possible.  It will not be possible to park on White’s Road as Garda traffic restrictions will be in place. There is a 5-7 minute walk from Farmleigh car park to the House, Gallery and Gardens. Full driving directions are here.

The closest Luas stop is Heuston Station. It’s a 3 minute walk to the shuttle bus stop on Parkgate Street.

There are several Dublin Bike stations close to the shuttle bus stop on Parkgate Street.
