GGI Travel Info
The venue is at:
Conlans Pub, Booleigh Cross, Booleigh, Kildare, R51 AX71
If possible we encourage people to travel by bike / mobility device or to walk
You can either go the whole way by from your starting point or can take a train to Athy or Kildare town and cycle or walk from there. In 2010 a group walked and camped from Dublin over several days to the GGI fest in Wexford and had an amazing experience.
By public transport via Kildare town or Athy
Public transport will bring you to either Athy or Kildare by train or bus. From there you either need to get a lift from us, we hope to have cars giving lifts when we know there are people due in or by taking a taxi. We did this by taxi via both towns in July and taxis were between 15 and 20 euro for up to four people. We will post numbers here soon for our “festival hotline” to see if we can collect you or use google for taxis
By public transport from Dublin airport
From Dublin Airport take the Dublin coach 726 service to Kildare and again contact us for possible lifts or get a taxi.
