Can we bring booze in to the gig?
No, you can't. Ever.
How do we get home?
Several punters had serious trouble returning home after Sunday night's Arcade Fire show so, with that in mind, the promoters have released the following information:
The Promoter is not licensed to, nor do they operate any transport to and from the Marlay Park Dublin concerts. Transport to and from the venue is a matter for individual ticket-holders themselves, whether by means of car-pooling, cycling, walking, or by availing of the LUAS, Dublin Bus service (which is providing an enhanced bus schedule along with additional buses to take concert-goers directly into the City after the concert), or by making an advance return booking on the 'Marathon coaches' special shuttle bus service operating directly between the City Centre and the concert venue, or finally, by hiring a taxi.
The shuttle bus is the most direct form of transport to the concert - as the drop off point is directly outside the venue. The shuttle bus service will operate for all concerts from custom house quay in the city centre direct to Marlay Park. www.marathonsportsbooking.ie/
Fare: €10 return. €9 when booked online in advance. Operating times are as below:
Note this is a return service only. We advise you to pre book in advance.
