Directions

Car

The town of Longford is serviced by the N5 and N63. The test site is located in the ‘Longford Centre’, located close to the town centre. Therefore, there are multiple parking options nearby. We’ve highlighted two car parks below which are within easy walking distance of the venue, and also carry modest parking charges.

Town Centre Car Park

This site is situated on the doorstep of the Longford Centre, so you’ll have an extremely short onwards journey to the testing venue. The car park is open all day, every day, but only chargeable between 8.30 am-6.30 pm, Monday to Saturday.

Please note that this is a maximum stay car park, which only allows vehicles to remain on-site for a two-hour period. Nevertheless, given its proximity to the test centre, this will allow more than enough time to arrive at the venue, complete your test, and return to your car. Parking is charged at €1 per hour. All payments must be paid by cash. Disabled parking is available at this facility.

The Longford Centre building is located just beyond the car park and can be reached via a short, one-minute walk heading northbound.

Geraldine Terrace Car Park

In the unlikely event that the town centre car park is full (it accommodates 430 vehicles), then please head to Geraldine Terrace. The site’s operational hours, chargeable times, and pricing structure are exactly the same as the Town Centre facility, but it is positioned slightly further away.

To access the test centre from here, please turn a slight left out of Geraldine Terrace onto Ardrum Ct, before continuing straight on for around 50m. When you reach Tesco, please turn right, and progress until you see the Longford Centre building on your left-hand side.

For further local parking information and alternative sites, please visit the relevant Parkopedia page, located here.

Bus

There are two main external bus routes that service Longford, both of which originate/terminate in Dublin.

  • 22: This service operates between Dublin and Ballina, heading in an east/west direction. If using this transit line, please exit the bus at Longford Train Station. For onwards journey guidance to the test centre, please refer to the train station notes below.
  • 23: The number 23 is a cross-country operator, shuttling between Sligo on the west coast and Dublin on the east. Please also alight at Longford Train Station.

If taking advantage of a local service, please either head to the train station or one of the bus stops shown below.

  • Courthouse Bus Stop: The journey to the test centre will take roughly six minutes from this location. Head southbound on the N5, turning left to cross Dublin Street and head onto Geraldine’s Terrace. Continue for around 100m, before heading left at the first available opportunity. Geraldine Terrace Car Park will be roughly 50m up on your left-hand side. The remainder of the route to the venue is mentioned in the Geraldine Terrace Car Park section.
  • Mel’s Cathedral Car Park Bus Stop: To get to the venue from here, please walk northbound up St. Mel’s Road, turning left at Chapel Lane. Progress for approximately 50m, before turning right at the first junction. Continue up this path, merging with Connor Park Road after around 50m. After another 50m, you’ll be able to see Longford Shopping Centre emerge on your left-hand side. The Longford Centre building is just beyond this site.

Train

Longford Train Station operates services heading towards Dublin, Sligo, Maynooth, and the M3 Parkway station. The station is located roughly 750m from the test venue or a nine-minute walk. Advance up Earl Street, continuing northbound as it links to the N5. Turn right at Dublin Street junction and then immediately left onto Geraldine’s Terrace. From here, please follow the earlier instructions given.
