Travelling to the event by Public Transport
Please note that you will not be able to drive to or close to the Phoenix Park on Sunday 26th August. You will get closer to the Mass by using Public Transport and you will be shortening your walk.
Dublin Bus, Luas and DART services are free on Sunday 26 August once you show your Mass Ticket.
For those travelling from outside Dublin using Public Transport: Please book your seat. We understand from public transport operators (including Bus Eireann, Irish Rail and Translink) that a lot of people have yet to formally book their ticket on rail or bus. Given the large volumes of people travelling to this event, we urge you to book your ticket now to ensure you can travel on the day.
There are also a number of Private Bus operators running services for the Papal Mass. All information on these and public transport options are listed on the Transport for Ireland website.
Your ‘print at home’ ticket, when issued, will include your colour route into and out of the Phoenix Park.
