At parkbytext we aim to take the stress out of parking so that everyone can enjoy the Horse Show to its fullest extent.
If you are getting the DART to the event, you can pre-book your parking for any Irish Rail station to the left.
By parking at any of the parkbytext locations at any local train stations, you can easily prepay beforehand, save money, and take the DART to the Horse Show. There is a DART station only a 2-3-minute walk from the RDS Main complex, where the Horse Show will be hosted. Here are the quick instructions on how to get there from the DART:
