Be Prepared For The One Direction Concert!

I was lucky enough to bag myself tickets for the One Direction Concert this Friday!
My daughter was so excited when I told her that she was going to the concert.
Most kids are obsessed with 1D and my daughter is no different. The CD is on
replay in the car but I’m not complaining because I actually like their music. So, I
thought this was perfect chance to write my ‘Parents’ Guide For  One Direction Concert’ because we will definitely need it!


1D Who?

Firstly, you need to know the names of the guys in the band, don’t embarrass
your children! Zayn, Niall (The Irish member of the band), Harry, Louis and Liam.



This is probably my biggest concern because I will be driving my car. I’m sure most
people are travelling by bus but I want to get there early and have no stress. If you
are taking the car here is some car parks close to Croke Park Stadium.

  • Clonliffe College
  • Q-Park Clerys, Marlborough St., Dublin 1.
  • Mater Hospital Car Park
  • Park Rite Parnell
  • Park Rite Irish life
  • Park Rite IFSC
  • Park Rite Fleet Street
  • Park Rite Arnotts


The Bag

I’m already thinking about what to bring with me! Crazy I know, but I don’t
go to concerts very often and I don’t want to forget anything. If it rains, I will
only pack our raincoats because the ticketmaster website says umbrellas are
prohibited. Don’t forget to bring your camera! For any budding photographers
hoping to get a glimpse of Harry Styles up close, cameras with detachable
lenses are not permitted. My phone will do me! 


If your kids are making posters, let them make them to A3 size. Posters will 
restrict the view of other people. You don’t need any disspointed kids if security
take their posters!


One Direction Movie

I’m going to watch  ‘One Direction: This is Us’ movie this week. I want to see what I’m letting myself in for and I want my daughter to appreciate going to the concert. This might make her super excited about going to the concert on Friday! The movie follows the guys while they are on tour and it’s got a thumbs up from the girls in the Kilkenny office!

So there you have it, my guide to surviving the One Direction concert this weekend. Take care when you are driving and walking around the venue, especially with young children.  For more up to date information on the day, ticketmaster has a great FAQ section. 

Enjoy the concert!
