Site Layout And Ground Conditions
We will endeavour to ensure all facilities are accessible, however, visitors should bear in mind that this Festival is on a field at the top of a hill. The site is mostly grassed and has natural inclines and dips. During inclement weather these can become boggy and some areas of the site may not be suitable for wheelchairs. However, our stewards are on hand at all times and will be happy to assist wherever possible. The Festival site is relatively compact, with the maximum distance from the Car Park to the Arena entrance being approximately 30metres. The distance from the Arena entrance to the stage is approximately 150metres.
All performances take place in one main Arena. The Arena entrance is located approximately 10metres away from the Campsite. Unisex accessible toilets are provided.
Please be aware that this is a music festival and as such strobe lighting will be part of the performances taking place.
Please be aware that this is a music festival and as such loud music will play during the whole of the festival duration. Adequate protection should be considered.
Rally Of Lugh Longarm is a rock festival and is, by the nature of its genre, sometimes unsuitable for younger children. Children 14 and under are not charged to enter the arena but must be accompanied by an adult at all times. We advise you to write your mobile number on the wristband of your children so that we can contact you if they become lost.
Anyone under 18 years of age is not able to buy a ticket or attend the festival alone. Attendees under 18 will need to be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18.
The maximum of four attendees under 18 can accompany a single adult when attending. In all cases, please ensure you have I.D. available for inspection.
Please note that we are operating a challenge 21 system. If you are aged 18-21 you must have Garda clearance I.D. If bar staff believe you to be under the age of 21 (if you are blessed with youthful looks), you must produce I.D. regardless of your age. If bar staff deem that you’ve had enough to drink, you must comply with the findings or risk eviction from the arena.
Guests may be searched on entry to the event. If you are in possession of illegal substances you will be refused entry and may be arrested.
The campsites are provided for FESTIVAL GOERS ONLY, a valid festival ticket is required by everyone that stays on site.
The festival site opens for camping on Friday 28th July from 8pm. The Festival Arena will be open for admission from 11am until 10.30pm on the Saturday & Sunday - there will be no admission to the festival arena outside of these times. Food and non-alcoholic drinks are available throughout the night from campsite vendors. All vehicles and campers must exit the site by 11am on Monday 31st July.
No sound systems or amplified music are allowed on site. People who disregard this regulation will have their equipment confiscated. This is so we can ensure that the festival does not exceed the permitted sound limits set out in our license. Tents are not available to hire, but you can bring your own tent and camping gear.
Rally Of Lugh Longarm will allow live-in vehicles into the appropriate section of the campsite and charges will apply at the normal camping rates. Once the live-in vehicle has been unhitched (if applicable) the car must be returned to the main car park. A live-in vehicle is one which is specifically adapted for sleeping such as camper vans or caravans. Strictly no cars - cars will not be allowed onto the campsite unless towing a caravan. The area for camping is used as part of the Irish Military War Museum for the rest of the year so it doesn’t have power or septic tanks. We must run the camping areas this way to comply with the event license, and other health and safety regulations.
As it’s our first year and different regulations are monitored, we won’t be permitting use of barbecues or any open fires.
You may bring a personal supply of alcohol with you into the campsites (decanted into plastic bottles, please), but you will not be able to bring it into the festival arena where there are licensed bars. This will be STRICTLY adhered to and you may be searched and be asked to return the alcohol to your tent or live-in vehicle.
Tents are not available to hire, but you can bring your own tent and camping gear. There will be toilets which will be cleaned at regular intervals, as well as hot shower facilities. There will be water supplied in containers in the campsite. Campers can use this to fill their own bottles. Please do not leave valuables in your tent or car. Keep your possessions with you.
Please note that the campsite closes and must be empty by 11am on Monday 31st July.
