By Car

The City North Hotel is located at Junction 7 off the M1 Motorway and there is plentiful free car parking on site. We would encourage car pooling where possible and we will set up a thread in our Ravelry group to facilitate this in the run up to the Festival.


Public Transport from Dublin City Centre

A commuter coach service is offered by Matthews Coaches, with the Bettystown/Laytown Route (Route 910) servicing the City North Hotel by default. The Dundalk/Drogheda Routes (Routes 900/901) also service the City North stop upon request only. Please inform the driver when you board that you wish to stop at the hotel.

Alternatively, you can take the northern commuter train from any City Centre train station (Pearse St, Tara St or Connolly Station) to Balbriggan train station and then take a taxi from there to the City North Hotel. See for more information.


From Dublin Airport

We will operate a private coach service from Dublin airport, offering a morning pickup and evening drop off. While we’d love you to stay for the weekend of the Festival, we are aiming to make it possible to visit Woollinn for the day from the UK (and other nearby European airports). You can find out more information on our private coach from Dublin Airport to the venue here and tickets can be booked here.

(Update: 6 June 2019 – Tickets are no longer available for this service.)

From the North

We recommend taking the train from Belfast to Drogheda Train Station. The “Enterprise” is an express service that will still allow for plenty of comfortable knitting time on the journey. The City North Hotel is then just a short taxi ride away.

Looking forward to seeing you at Woollinn 2019!
