Nearest major landmark is Blessington village which is on the N81 some 5/6 miles southwest of Tallaght. however an alternative to turning off in Blessington village which is normally very busy with traffic is to take a left turn just before Blessington called ‘Red lane’ as noted on the OS56 map. Road is not marked Red lane but sign posted for Lake Drive and Lacken. Continue down red lane, at T junction take right turn sign posted for Lake Drive and Lacken. Take next left turn to cross Blessington Bridge over the Phollaphuca reservoir, turn right after crossing bridge, follow road around. Approximately 1.4 miles from bridge, a small lane on left leads to event parking and registration Start G.R O 003123. This turn is easy to miss so watch out for the marshall/sign at this turn off. Continue up lane until see marshall directing traffic into field on left.
If coming from Blessington village take the left turn off the N81 at the traffic lights in the centre of the village. take the route signposted to Lacken. After about 1km from Blessington, turn right across the Blessington Bridge and follow directions as above.

Parking is €3 per car which field owner will collect at entrance.
