Take note – there’ll be major disruption in Dublin this weekend


There’ll be major traffic disruption in the city between Friday night and Tuesday morning as the latest phase of Luas Cross City works take place.

Here are the main points:

  • Access to the quays across O’Connell Bridge closed to eastbound and westbound traffic.
  • Local diversions will be in place and access to car parks will be maintained – significant disruption to traffic is expected.
  • If you need to drive through Dublin City, it’s being recommended you use the ‘Inner Orbital’ route (below).
  • A number of Dublin Bus routes will be affected.
  • The restrictions will be in place between 8pm on Friday and 6am on Tuesday.

It will be particularly busy around Croke Park and the Aviva Stadium – with a full schedule of matches taking place at GAA HQ on Saturday and Sunday, and a Celtic v Barcelona fixture at the Lansdowne Road stadium on Saturday evening.

People are being urged to take public transport if at all possible.
