Festival Coach Service From Dublin City Centre & Naas Town
Marathon Travel are the official transport partners for the 2017 Punchestown Festival. The service will cater for Dublin city centre & Naas town. We recommend advance booking to save money and secure your seat.
For Advance, Group & Private Bookings: Phone +353 (0) 1 4755010 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Naas Shuttle Service
Local companies will be doing a shuttle service from outside Lawlors Hotel and outside the Post Office in the middle of Naas starting from 11.30. They will also do return shuttle.
NON - FESTIVAL Bus Service
Unfortunately due to fluctuating demand we no longer operate a direct coach service to Punchestown outside of the festival dates. Any exceptions to this will be notified via Twitter and Facebook but please feel free to contact the Punchestown office should you have any queries.
We would suggest that a bus to Naas (2 miles from racecourse) and a taxi from one of the two ranks on the main street is the best option. There is a very helpful website called www.gethere.ie that can assist in your transport query. The following companies operate services from Dublin City centre to Naas main street:
www.jjkavanagh.ie www.dublincoach.ie www.buseireann.ie
Irish Rail operate a service from Dublin's Heuston Station to Sallins (just outside Naas). During the festival there will be a shuttle bus service in operation which will transfer passengers to Poplar Square in Naas for free. From there the raceday bus will collect (from €5) or a taxi direct to the track should be around €10 - €15.

Please check bus/coach and rail sections for transfer details.
