You could get the 16 bus from the airport(Bus stop is just outside arrivals) and it will take you straight to Ballinteer/Marlay park. The 16 is very frequent, just sit back and relax and all for the price of a pint. Taxi fares are going to be extortionate.

Getting back from Marlay Park into the city is going to be a nightmare. Anyone any suggestions?

U cud get a 14 bus back into town. Its about 10 min walk to a 14 bus stop once u come out the grange road side of marley. It wud take you 30 mins on the bus back into town. Walk to bus stop near ballinteer house and get it from there on the side to go to town.
U cud also get the 14 down to the luas stop in dundrum. u wud be 5 mins on the bus down to dundrum then 15 mins on the luas to stephens green.

If the shuttle buses are bringing you to the front entrance of marley park on the grange road then the eden pub is really close. If the shuttle buses are droppin u out in the car park at the back of MArley then there is nothing around. I also forgot about the pub called the 3 rock which would be close enuf. But nearest pub to the pedestrian entrance of marley is the eden pub.Nice beer garden as well.
SO its saturday, its dublin, its july its guarenteed to be pissin rain. We had our summer about 6 weeks ago. Great 3 f*ckin days it was
Suppose ask the bus driver to drop u as close to the eden and u cant go wrong really.

We are booked on to 230 shuttle so I am guessing we'll have plenty of time to walk round to the Eden Pub as the gates don't open until 530 I read. I am guessing with the support acts it may be easy to get down the front

gardiner street isnt great but if ur stuck i suppose.

folks if ur goin back into town after the gig then i really recommend goin to Bruxelles. Tunes will be top drawer in there. Mate of mine is a dj in there. Big Roses fan so u will defo hear the roses in there. Great buzz in there. Wriggers thanks for the offer of a pint but if anyone is deserving of a pint its the dj in bruxelles. His name is Jon, top bloke. Cant recommend the place enuf for a big concert buzz flying on the roses kind of place. That man played at least 10 roses songs after the concert in phoenix park. Place was bouncing.

Folks the day is nearly upon us, the roses are practically playing in me back garden, Cant believe this day would ever happen.
There is a slight chance i cud be working in town up till lunch time so i might even be able to throw some people in d car and bring them out to the leafy suburbs of ballinteer if I am working.
Keep in touch people. we will look after u if we can.

Yes. Bruxelles.
Love that place, even the tiny toilets. Have sat outside there watching the day go by many a time.

Nice one! Seen there is a party somewhere close to my hotel afterwards, rowetta and a few others are djing at.

Any tips on places to eat, thinking Italian food or something along those lines? Seems so much choice but don't know where would be good value?

Its a great spot isnt it Jailer?

Just saw that now about rowetta playin in the workmans. Thats on wellington quay not to far from where u are stayin scotty. Its near temple bar.

Just be warned about temple bar, its most expensive place in ireland to get a gargle. Price for drink goes up hourly after 10ish in the bars there. Seriously u cud easy pay €8 a pint in there.

Stay away from temple bar and u shud be ok.

SOme good boozers like odonoghues near baggot st where the guinness will be champion and it will be about a fiver a pint.

MCD have announced gabriel and rodrigo will be on at 7.45 so roses prob wont be on till 9.
So all the stuff that the promoters said about the concerts finishing early seems to be horsesh1t and it looks like the gigs will be on till 11. More moaning from the residents association.
It doesnt bother me what time they finish at but Id say it will be closer to 11.
