The car park at INDIEPENDENCE is located adjacent to the festival site.

All INDIE car parks are located just off site within very short walking distance. Every effort including roadways, ground covering and drainage is taken to ensure that car parks are solid, however, since these are grass fields, in the event of excessively heavy rain, alternative car parking may be used. Please keep an eye on the website and social media for updates.

As parking is limited and because we want to keep one eye on the poor penguins, we encourage patrons to car pool and use public transport where possible please! You will be asked to produce a valid INDIE23 ticket before parking your car. Please have this ready to show security on arrival.


If approaching the car park from the Dublin side:

– Drive past the car park location and carry on to the roundabout at the Firgrove Hotel. It is not possible to enter the car park by crossing the main road so travel around the roundabout and back to the car park site.

If approaching the car park from the Mitchelstown side:

– From the roundabout at the Firgrove Hotel carry on past the festival entrance and the car park will be visible on your left.

Set Down & Drop Off

All (car) drop off and collection should enter via the main car park gate and follow signs and directions. You must approach the drop off location from the Mitchelstown side as you will not be able to cross the line of traffic coming from the Dublin side. This huge additional journey will take you around 30 seconds to go to the roundabout and return. Please take instruction from security staff, DO NOT STOP IN THE ENTRANCE (You’d be surprised how often this happens!).

When you leave the drop off area, YOU MUST TURN LEFT, you cannot cross the line of traffic to turn right, please proceed to the Kilbehenny roundabout for access to the M8 Motorway or to turn.

Day Ticket Parking

Day Ticket Parking will also be located within the main car park. Please car pool or use public transport where possible. You will be asked by security to produce a valid INDIE23 ticket before you park your car, please have this ready.
