Will there be any tickets available at the door?
Unfortunately we will not have ANY passes available for purchase on the door. Please do not travel to Maynooth unless you have already booked a ticket online or via a local promoter.
Are there any evening only passes available?
We are only able to make a very limited number of evening passes available each year. We do assess our numbers on an ongoing basis and release more as we are able to but if the option is not available to book them through our online form here then they are currently sold out.
Will there be parking available in the College?
Yes there is plenty of parking in both the North and South Campus. All of the parking is free (there are pay and display signs but they only apply during the college term) and to ensure we have enough space we have secured additional parking behind the main dance area.
To access the additional parking the code for the Barrier is 2017.
If I haven't booked food what options are there?
If you are staying in the college accommodation your apartment includes a kitchen with cooking facilities. You can purchase supplies in the LIDL and Dunnes stores which are just outside the college. It is also possible to book breakfast directly with the college but this must be done and paid for in advance at the college reception.
Over the weekend the college dining hall will be serving soup and sandwiches on a pay as you go basis.
As well as this there is a large number of restaurants and takeaways within the immediate vicinity of the college.
Can I access the shows if I haven't booked the dinner?
Unfortunately this is not possible. Only those who have booked the Dinner & Shows in advance will be able to attend.
