How to get to the 3Arena?

The red line LUAS is your best bet as it stops right outside the 3Arena.  Alternatively, the 151 Dublin Bus route operates every 10 minutes during rush hour and will leave you on Castleforbes Road, the closest stop to the venue at 2 minutes walk away.  The last bus departs Castleforbes Road at 23.15pm Mon - Sat. For bus services times see www.dublinbus.ie

The DART which will leave you a 20 minute walk away.  Or, you can drive, but leave plenty of time as traffic is likely to be heavy.  Parking is available at Point Village car park.  The evening rate is €12 from 6pm to midnight, when the car park closes.  Overnight is €14. 

Can children attend?

Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.  And standing is for 14s and over.  Parents with children under 14 must have a seated ticket.

What will the weather be like?

According to Met Eireann it will be a dry night tonight with temperatures reaching 10 or 11 degrees.  Rain is expected Tuesday afternoon but should clear by the time the concert gets underway, with temperatures 10-12 degrees over the evening.

What items are prohibited?

Anything that can be deemed as a weapon, obviously.  Also, cans, bottles, selfie sticks, large umbrellas, iPads/tablets, video cameras, professional cameras (lens 35mm or more), audio recording devices, Go-Pro, large posters (A3 or bigger), large flags on poles, belt chains, laser pointers.
