Four years after they last played the same venue, Kodaline will make the short trip from their north Dublin homes to Malahide Castle this Friday for one night only.
The Dubliners, who released their last album 'One Day at a Time', will play the beautiful grounds of the castle on Friday, June 17th 2022.
Here's everything you need to know.
CAN I STILL BUY TICKETS?
At time of writing (10am Thursday morning), Ticketmaster had a limited number of tickets available. This gig is a reschedule gig (post-Covid), so if you had a ticket for the band's Olympia Theatre or Malahide Castle gig from 2021, it's valid for `Malahide Castle in 2022.
WHERE ARE THE GIGS ON?
They're in the grounds of the beautiful Malahide Castle in North County Dublin.
HOW DO I GET THERE?
If you're taking public transport, the DART is the handiest way. The Malahide station is a 15-minute walk from the concert site. Note that pedestrians will only be able to use the entrance via Hogan's Gate (the side that the DART station is on), and not any other entrance.
You could also get the bus - routes that serve Malahide include the 42 from Talbot Street.
There will also be a direct bus service operated by Marathon Coaches from Custom House Quay to Malahide Castle, every half-hour from 3pm to 6pm. You can pre-book tickets here. Buses will start returning after the concert from 10.30pm, with the last departure from Malahide at 11.30pm.
If you're travelling by car, you can pre-book a parking space adjacent to the concert site via this link.
WHAT'S THE WEATHER GOING TO BE LIKE?
According to Yr.no, it's not good news. While it won't be particularly cold (temps from 15 - 19 degrees) tomorrow evening, showers are forecast from around 7pm - 10pm. Best pack a raincoat (umbrellas are not allowed.)
WHAT TIME DO GATES OPEN?
Gates open at 5pm.
WHAT TIME ARE KODALINE ON STAGE?
Stage times to follow as per promoter.
We know that there will be three support acts: True Tides, Lucy Blue and Tom Walker.
Gates open: 5pm
True Tides: 5.45pm

Tom Walker: TBC
