Where to park on race day?

Although we strongly recommend the use of public transport to reach the starting line, official race parking will be available at Presentation College Bray, Putland Road, for 19 km, 30 km and 46 km runners. The car park will be open from 8:00 to 18:00. Please ensure you retrieve your car before closing time. There is no entry fee.

Note it is a 1500m / 20 min walk to the start line / collection from Presentation College.

Search for 'Presentation College Bray' in Google Directions or similar or use this link for location. You should take the Bray/Greystones/Kilcroney exit off the N11 from the South. Take Exit 5 off the N11 from the North / Dublin.

Several free and 'pay and display' options are also available in Bray as shown on the two images below:


More FREE parking options

A free parking option is available at Greystones Park and Ride. From here you must walk 650 m (8 min) to Greystones Railway station and take the DART (a 9 minute train drive) to Bray (Daly) and then walk the final 600m (8 min) from Bray railway station to the Martello Hotel.


Leave 30 minutes from time you park to closure of your race's collection as a minimum to be on the safe side if you avail of this option. Greystones DART runs from 6:30 in the morning. Check the time table for best connection for you and book tickets online for fastest trip.

This option is recommended for participants travelling from the South.
