Naas Shuttle Service - FESTIVAL ONLY

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:

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.
