Parking at the Dublin Horse Show

Park and gallop to the Dublin Horse Show with parkbytext and Irish Rail!

At parkbytext we aim to take the stress out of parking so that everyone can enjoy the Horse Show, running 9th-13th of Augus, to its fullest extent.
If you are getting the DART to the event, you can pre-pay your parking for any Irish Rail station to the left.

By parking at any of the parkbytext locations at any local train stations, you can easily prepay beforehand, save money, and take the DART to the Horse Show. There is a DART station only a 2-3-minute walk from the RDS Main complex, where the Horse Show will be hosted. Here are the quick instructions on how to get there from the DART:
From Sandymount DART Station
Located in close proximity to the RDS is the DART line.  The closest DART station to the RDS is Sandymount.
Directions on foot from the Sandymount Dart Station:

  • Follow the Exit signs and turn right onto Sandymount Avenue
  • Continue until you reach the traffic lights (Bewleys and the Four Seasons Hotel will be directly in front of you)
  • For the RDS Main Complex then turn right onto Merrion Road and the Main Complex is situated on the left hand side (Merrion Road).
  • For the Simmonscourt Complex continue straight ahead from the traffic lights at the crossroads, passing Bewleys on your left: the Simmonscourt Complex is on the left hand side after the office buildings
