Duration & Locations

Our Navan location services both Dublin and Meath and is held in the Ardboyne Hotel in Navan. This great location is on the Dublin side of Navan and is just 30 minutes from the M50. For those on public transport, the Bus Eireann 109 service stops at Springfield Green which is 2 minutes from the hotel. Return travel options are available, see buseireann.ie for ticket information.

Our 8am start time makes it easier to get to Navan against rush hour traffic than for many Dublin-based courses and the hotel offers refreshments and is close to a variety of shops and food outlets. As our most popular location, we offer safe pass courses several times per week here.
