It's an outdoor festival showcase a selection of outdoor sports, and some music. This event has been going for at least 3 years, and had a good selection of live bands performing at the festival.

**Meeting Point**
The meeting point will be at the Protected content

I'm very aware, some of ye had attended a similar event nearby last year. This festival is on the same beach as last year bull island event organised by Delphine, but it is further down this beach.
As a result, the Dublin Bus to take is #31 or #32 and NOT #130.
This route is closer, the distance from the bus stop to the entrance of the festival is shorter, giving you more time to enjoy the festival.

Weather forecast: Showers is expected on Sunday morning, but due to be clear by Noon

Things to consider bringing: Frisebee/ football/ light volleyball -, there will be volleyball courts set up, picnic blanket/ sitting mats swim wear(if you are brave enough), possible some food/ beverage - there will be food / drinks stand at the festival, but selection can be quite limited.

How to get there:
Public Transport: Dublin Bus is the easiest (from bus stop- festival Protected content walk, but you have a scenic view)
DART - Nearest Dart station is approx 20mins /30mins walk away from the nearest bus stop.

Dublin bus - Take any bus with #31 like 31a or 31b or also 32. The bus stop to get off is the junction of Howth and Clontarf Road, this is after St. Anne's Park. (Please tell bus driver exactly this location, and request nicely. to let you know when to get off). when you get off the bus, walk towards the main road, that's goes alongside by the coast. When you get to the road, turn right, so you are now walking along the coast towards the direction of the chimineys of the power station should be able to see on the other side of the Dublin bay. When you get close to the traffic lights at the cross junction, turn left. Walk straight to the end, you see a small roundabout, there should be a sign or staff indicating the entrance to the festival. (journey time on the bus from city centre Protected content

Driving to the festival, please do not go near the wooden bridge, there won't much car park space there. Instead drive further along the coast road (going from city centre), towards the next big junction. When you see a big park on the left, a big junction should be coming up nearby. At the junction, turn right. As soon you have turn, start looking for parking space, the further down this road, the harder it gets to get space. If you see a small roundabout, that's the end of that road, no public parking is allowed beyond the roundabout.

Cycling: I'm hoping to cycle to the festival too. From previous years, there was bike racks to lock bikes. The bike racks are usually positioned at the entrance of festival, after the roundabout. If you are cycling from city centre, I suggest using the road along the East Point - less traffic, route is abit safer as most of it is marked with cycle lanes. Also let me know, I'll consider meeting you in town somewhere maybe near IFSC/ 3 Arena /Convention Centre and take you for a spin along the coast road towards the festival (journey time from city centre Protected content
