Entry To The Ball

There are three entrance points, detailed below. The point through which you must enter will be printed on your ticket. Patrons will be admission between 21.00 and 22.30. There will be no admittance after 22.30.


Front Gate: To get to Front Gate, you must go to the end of Grafton Street. There will be a bespoke crossing point located there which gives access to the Front Gate entrance point. It will not be possible to access Front Gate directly from College Green or Dame Street.

Nassau Street Gate: Access to the Nassau Street entrance point will be via two bespoke crossings; one at the bottom of Grafton Street, the other from outside Reads book store. It will not be possible to access Nassau Street Gate directly from the bottom of Dawson Street.

Westland Row: Access will be from Westland Row; the gate is adjacent to the Sports Hall and directly opposite Pearse station.

AVOID the Luas works area around College Green, Dame Street, Westmoreland Street and Pearse Street. The LUAS barriers will completely block access to the College and the Ball.


If you are travelling to the Ball by taxi, please avoid Dame Street and Nassau Street. The Gardaí will direct taxis away from the College if deemed necessary. We recommend disembarking at Merrion Square, or on Westland Row, Pearse Street or Lombard Street, and walking the short distance to your entrance point.


There will be medical and Junior Dean centres at each of the three entrance gates. Students who arrive in a drunken state will not be permitted to enter the Ball. They will be escorted to the medical centre for assessment and, if deemed unfit to enter the Ball area, they will remain until their parents collect them, or until arrangements are made to send them home. In serious cases, arrangements will be made to send the student to hospital.
