Allow yourself plenty of time to get around tomorrow.
US President Joe Biden is currently visiting Ireland on a four-day trip, which has naturally caused some traffic disruption and road closures. The Phoenix Park and Dublin Zoo are both closed from 5pm on April 12th until 5pm on April 13th, at the request of An Garda Síochána, to facilitate the visit.
While Dublin City Centre remains open for business, there may be delays due to the many road closures. Dublin Airport may also see increased delays, so passengers are being encouraged to allow additional time to travel through.
