Default Parking at Kent Station

Is it usually fine to get a spot during the week?

Will be rushing tomorrow to get the 3:30 train and need to park as near as possible to the station.

Cheers

The car park at the actual train station is often full so you may have to park in the carpark around the corner. Allow yourself an extra five minutes to walk up.

Id buy your tickets online so you dont have to waste time queuing up

Whereabouts is that, actually? Not familiar with the area, tbh.

Is parking usually available there, ya? Tickets are booked and all.

Its before Kent station on the right.

Coming from MacCurtain street you hang a right by right price tiles (across from the church).

Check Kent station car park first you might get a space but its often full.
Theres never any problem getting a space in the one around the corner, its huge.
2 quid for a pay n display ticket, good for 24 hours.

It's never a problem for the 5am or 6:15am trains to Dublin. It gets full around the time that the 7:30am leaves.

It's likely that by 3:30 pm some of the spaces will have come free again, but there's always Railway St.

Just, as LD says, give yourself 5 minutes extra.

Technically, you can buy drink on board, but can't bring your own on.

I have never seen that enforced.

I was on the Dublin - Cork train a few years ago after a Cork game in CP. Train was packed and a lot of people began cracking open cans that they smuggled on. An IE employee let it be known in no uncertain terms that there would be no drinking on the train, as usual no one paid the slightest bit of notice to him until he swiped a slab of cans off a fella. Yer man ran down the aisle with panicked look on his face asking random passengers did anyone see who took his cans.
