Ticket collection point in Dublin looks to be a remote industrial estate. 

 

I was was thinking it would be in team hotel / hotel near the ground. Safer and more convenient  

Looking at google maps there is damn all in the area, probably going to be a big ticketmaster lorry.

If it's same as address I was looking at its 23minute walk from Aviva! That's going to be handy for people getting down later in the evening !!

Email says Southbank Road, but there is only a South Bank Road on Google, presume that's it

Yeah Taz 23 mins on google map on the far side of the ground. 

Apparently the Luas tram line runs out to the 3 Arena / Point Depot, its a similar walk over the bridge to the collection point

Can only imagine the feck up giving out all these tickets before the match, our bus isn't leaving until 3.30 which is fine enough with traffic at that time in Dublin never mind a minimum of about 1000, maybe 2k standing waiting for tickets to be handed out and ID checked.... ?

This must be where they have parking, and everything is geared for people arriving by vehicle from NI

For anyone who might have planned to arrive to and stay in central Dublin this is just another level of f**kery

That's the little bit of me that was still tempted to go to this now gone

You'll have enough to worry you on that train than panicking about picking up tickets!!

Does seem a weird choice I have to say (and I relented and I'm now going as there's a bus going from and returning to Ards when I really thought it would be an escorted bus convoy type of day out).

A 25 min walk the opposite side of the stadium from the city centre. Fun.

Are you sure you won't be bussed in?

Individual buses going from all parts Jim so it may be hard to police and the last thing we need is a repeat of the hotel shambles in Basel when everyone turns up at the same time to collect tickets - the Austria game on the Sunday will be over let alone the game than night by the time they have it sorted.

The only bus I'll be getting is the one from the airport to the city centre after my flight lands.

No bus for me, I'm afraid - the Tube will get me to Philomena's much quicker. :thumbsup:

On a trip to the Brandywell, everyone met at Crescent Retail Park and boarded buses specifically for the short journey across the bridge back to 1972. This included fans who'd came up on their own supporter buses. Tickets were handed out on the buses. After the game we were taken back to.our cars/buses at the retail park.

That meeting place has the same nonsense written all over it.

The area is a bit remote.  It is convenient for those travelling down the M1 using the Port Tunnel and then the East Link bridge to reach the Aviva.  There are tolls but it is the easiest route.  It is also close to the entrance to the away end.

I used that route on my way to Blackrock College - looked a nice part of Dublin. Anyway, it was a Saturday, so the toll prices were off peak, but iirc, the peak time prices were pretty expensive, so best avoided at those times. Particularly the tunnel.
