Finding Trinity College Chapel:

Make your way to the city centre of Dublin, as seen on map.
There are 3 ways for pedestrians to enter Trinity College campus, as marked with arrows on the map:

  1. Through Front Arch, at College Green
  2. Through "The Arts Block", at junction of Dawson St. & Nassau st.
  3. At Lincoln place (turn left at end of Nassau st)

If entering via 3)  allow 10 minutes walk (esp. in heels) to get to Front Square, where the Chapel is.

Trinity Chapel is circled on the map.

If you come through Front Arch, the Chapel is on your left, (diagonally), and the Exam Hall is on the right.

The entrance to the Science Exhibition block on Pearse (also marked) street is closed on Saturdays.
If arriving by train, it might be better to enter via Lincoln Place.

Trinity: Only a maximum of 8 pre-registered cars may enter the campus, including the bridal party.
Therefore pre-registered cars are restricted to immediate family only.

Nearby parking centres include:

  • Fleet Street (Temple Bar; 5min walk);
  • Irish Life Car Park (Lower Abbey Street; 9 min walk).
  • College of Surgeons (St Stephen's Green shopping centre, follow route from Upper Merrion St. onto St. Stephens Green; 10 min walk);
  • Setanta Car Park (follow signs on Kildare st, 4 mins walk), but costs 4 Euro an hour, which makes it very expensive!!

On street car parking may be available, it usually costs 2.90 Euro an hour.

Parking in Dublin is tight on Saturdays, we strongly suggest that you arrive early to avoid disappointment.
At the time of writing the new College Green Bus Corridor does not apply on Saturdays.


The nearest train station is Pearse St Station, it is marked on the map above,
you should then make your way through the Lincoln Place Entrance.
