well its a public park so the earliest you can queue is when it opens which on a weekend is about 8 or 9

 

What time does it open on a weekday? Presumably we can queue at the closed gates??

They will be return tickets as far as I know, so if you didn't get one on the way down, you won't be able to get on the bus on the way back. I may be wrong though, I live the other direction from Marlay and have never used the special buses, but they usually only have the ticket bus in the city centre.

I can't remember if they check tickets coming back. I know I bought a return when I was there. But I'm sure with the 1000s of people getting on these buses it won't be too organised and I'm sure you could blag your way on.

 

That's what I'm planning on doing.

Which station are you getting the to? Don't you know anyone who works in Dublin that might be driving up earlier? Although, 9am is still pretty early to start queuing.

You should get the train all the way into town and then just get on a bus out to Marlay, it will be much cheaper. Look here for which one to get: http://www.dublinbus.ie

You are looking to get to Grange Road.:) Are you staying somewhere in town or what?

Well the special buses don't run till an hour before the gates open but there is a scheduled bus service that passes Marlay Park that runs from about 7.30-8 am. Really even though people are talking about queuing from 6am, these will be the minority of hardcore nutters (me included), most people won't be there till the afternoon.:D

Does it make any difference what gate you queue at cause theres 2?:LOL:

What gate do taxi's usually drop people off at?

 

Well, theres the car park entrance, and then another one off the main road where the buses go....I think :unsure:
