Parking

Parking is strictly controlled in the stadium area. You are advised to park in the city centre and use the Match Day shuttle bus or local bus servcies.

Drinking advice from Football Ground Guide - www.footballgroundguide.com.

There are not many pubs located close to the stadium, so the choice for away fans is limited. There is the Waterfront Bar in William Street, which is an area called Shamrock Quay. You can visit the Waterfront Bar website for more details.

Another pub recommended by visiting fans is 'The Admiral Sir Lucius Curtis' in the Ocean Village.

Most fans seem to end up in the city centre before the game, where there are plenty of pubs to choose from.

On the cross roads where Civic Centre Road and New Road meet, if you take right onto Above Bar Street you will find Yates (public house) where visiting supporters are accepted entry.
