By Public Transport

The team at The Outing Festival are committed to protecting and enhancing the environment for future Generations. We are continuously striving to improve our environmental practises which include the implementation of various policies, particularly in relation to traveling to the festival and use of Public Transport.

We encourage festival goers to use public transport were one can and if groups are going to car share.

The Hotel now has an electrical charging point for electric cars.

In 2023 with support from Failte Ireland we ran Bus transfer from Ennis, Shannon & Limerick City both going and from the evening part of the festival.
