Getting There:

FarAwayOMeter: Nearly A Derby by this season’s standards

There is no fan bus planned for this game.  However Bus Eireann route 32 has a 22:45 service back to Sion Mills, Strabane, Lifford and Letterkenny from Central Dublin so may be an option for some.  Bus Eireann Route 30/X30 has service at 23:00 and 00:30 that service Ballyshannon and Donegal Town.  Fans in Galway can avail of Aircoach (last bus 23:45, also serves Athlone) and Citylink (last bus 00:15) services from Dublin City Centre.

Driving / Parking:

As per the Wanderers website:

Take the N11 out of Dublin or M50 Southbound.

Exit the M50/N11 merge at junction 5 Bray North. At roundabout take second exit towards Bray. Continue straight on along the Dublin Road, cross the Dargle bridge and turn left at the lights just beyond the Royal Hotel. Continue down Quinnsboro Road. The Carlisle is on your left just before the level crossing.

Parking is in the streets around the ground.

Public Transport

As per the Wanderers website:

By train

All DART trains from Dublin City Stations Southbound stop at Bray Station. Journey time is 40 minutes from Dublin City Centre.
Most south-east-bound trains stop at Bray, as do most trains from the South-east to Dublin. When you arrive at the station, leave by the main exit and turn right. The entrance and turnstiles are visible from there.
