The venue is the same venue that has been used for the previous 3 Irish Championships. Lucan Community College which is located on Esker Drive in Lucan, Co.Dublin.
If you are coming from the airport and plan on using public transport to get to the venue, it can be a bit tricky. There is the Airport Hopper service that takes you between the Airport and Lucan Village (which is a 10 minute walk away from the venue). You also have the option of taking a bus to the city centre and then from the city centre to Lucan.
Dublin Bus offer a number of bus routes to and from the city centre to either Lucan Village or right by where the venue is. All of the possible routes to Lucan can be found on their website: https://www.dublinbus.ie/
If you are coming by train on iarnrod eireann the stop you would have to get off at will be Adamstown train station, however that is about a 30 minute walk from the venue. But it is the closest train station there is.
There is parking at the venue and there is no charge.
The most popular hotels and B&B’s from previous years have been the Lucan Spa hotel and the Moat Lodge B&B. But there are still a number of options around Lucan such as Finnstown House.
If you are on a strict budget then Air B&B is always an option.
