  • Arrival day Saturday 1st August – the venue is approx. 3 hours bus journey from Dublin Airport. On Saturday there is only one direct bus that brings you to Wellington Bridge, which is 5km from the venue. The bus to Wellington Bridge leaves at 17.00 from Dublin Airport Coach Park and at 18.00 from O’Connell St (outside the Gresham Hotel), which is the main street in Dublin. All pax must travel by this bus as we will organise a pick up from Wellington Bridge when this bus arrives. This means that all pax must arrive in Dublin airport at the very latest 16.00 (which will leave you time to depart your flight, clear passport control, collect your bag and walk the 10 mins to the coach park). If you cannot make a flight that brings you into Dublin by this time, then I suggest you travel the day before and stay in Dublin Friday night. I can send suggestions of cheap accommodation in Dublin, which you must pay for yourself. Please only fly to DUBLIN airport, we cannot assist flights to any other airport.
