Is the venue wheelchair accessible?

Yes, Leinster Cricket Club is wheelchair accessible. Dublin Vegfest is a fully outdoor event this year, so it should be noted that some areas of the site may become muddy in wet weather. Facilities for disabled people have been arranged to maximise use of the hard ground that does exist. Where a drop in ground/floor levels exists, ramps will be installed, so that access around the site is maximised. Stewards will be present to assist people in wheelchairs in the event of emergency exiting.
People with disabilities are welcome to head to the front of the queue and can be admitted a bit early. Please notify staff on the day.

Are there baby changing facilities in the venue?

Yes, there are baby changing facilities in the disabilities toilets. Map of the event will be published here closer to the day.

If you purchased a Supporter’s Goody bag admission, you can stop by the Info Point anytime from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. to pick it up.

Can I bring my dog?

Afraid not. The venue and the nature of the event (masses of people, heat, etc.) are going to put your animal companion under too much stress.
Assistant dogs are welcome as well as their humans. 

Can we bring in outside food or beverages?

Bringing a water bottle is fine; otherwise, food, beverages and more are for sale inside. No glass bottles are permitted on the festival grounds.
