Dublin Pride - Public Transport and Road Diversions

June 26, 2024
    Happy Pride!

    The Dublin Pride Parade goes from O’Connell Street to Merrion Square and will mark the 50th anniversary of the first Dublin Pride March and Parade!

    The Parade starts at noon, and it takes about 45 minutes to complete the full route. However, it is a pretty big parade so it can take about 90 minutes for everyone to start moving depending on their position.

    A free festival of LGBTQ+ community and culture will take place in Merrion Square Park from 1.00pm-6.00pm on Saturday June 29th.
