Castlebar is on the other side of Ireland to Dublin, but it nonetheless easy to get to by car and public transport. There are regular buses and trains, and tickets cost no more than €20 for each, with the journey is in the region of between 3 and 5 hours, depending on how you travel.
If you’re flying in for the Castlebar concert only, Knock airport is only 25 minutes drive away, and buses run from the airport to Castlebar three times daily.
The Royal Theatre has two hotels attached to it, the Royal Hotel and the Harlequin Hotel. Accommodation is booking out fast, but there are around 15 hotels in Castlebar, all within easy access of the venue. There are also two hostels in Castlebar, one of which is on Westport Road, close to the Royal Theatre.
