Default Skerries 100 Parking

Hi All. Is there anywhere to park around the circuit apart from the car parks near Finnegans or do you have to park there and walk around the circuit to find a spot to watch?

theres plenty of parking weather you approach from Skerries or lusk /Rush
best park outside circuit so if needed you can get a quick getaway . Lots of houses open their drives and charge a fiver for the day ( Dead safe )
They dont seem to mind parking of bikes on roadside near all entry points close to entry fences , just want to keep cages in the fields outadaway

Careful on the side roads, buddies bike was lifted close to the castle last year while the racing was on. When we went to report it, turned out there were a few stolen.

Thanks for the advice all.

If you pick a spot to watch from but it's not great can you get around the outside of the circuit walking once the racing starts, or is it one spot for the day?

You wont have to wait in a poor spot if you're not keen on it. People always making their way around in between sessions. The Marshalls will let you know when its safe to make a move.

I wouldn't park any bike at the side of the road in Skerries.
Stolen and broken for parts as quick as they are loaded into a van.
