As part of Pope Francis’s visit to Ireland for the World Meeting of Families, it is announced that there will be opportunities for the public to see the Pope as he travels through Dublin City Centre on Saturday afternoon.

The Pontiff will be traveling in an open vehicle, aka ‘the Popemobile’, from the Pro Cathedral to the Capuchin Centre.

He is scheduled to leave Marlborough Street onto Cathal Brugha Street at around 16:15.

After turning on to O’Connell Street, the Popemobile will cross the Liffey and travel down Westmoreland Street, past College Green and then continue up Dame Street.

The Pope will pass Dublin Castle and City Hall, continuing up Lord Edward Street, High Street and Bridge Street, crossing back over the Liffey up Church Street before turning onto Bow Street and into the Capuchin Centre.

The entire trip is expected to take 15-20 minutes approximately.
