Forbidden Fruit, ya little ride.
All the fun of a festival without having to trek too far or sleep in a sweaty tent.
Taking place over the next three days in Kilmainham, we’ve drawn up a delish list of all the info you’re likely to need for the weekend ahead.
1. Opening times
Music ends at 10.45pm each evening.
2. Getting there
- Easy Peasy: Free Bulmers Buses will pick up at Harcourt Street at 30 minute intervals starting at 4pm on Friday and at 2pm Saturday and Sunday.
- Luas: Take the Red Line from Abbey Street to Heuston Station, then it’s a 5 minute walk from there.
- Dublin Bus:
40, 123 or 13 from Upper O’Connell Street or College Green
79, 79A from Aston Quay or Temple Bar
25A from Wellington Quay or Temple Bar
- Taxi: Ask to go to James Street and Bow Lane – that’s as far as they can bring you.
It looks like the current scorcher is set to continue – minus the small threat of thundershowers on Saturday. Make sure you have sunblock, a zippie and sunnies at the ready!
