🌍 Travel to Dublin

Entry & visa requirements from Germany 🛂

If you’re a German or other EU national, you’ll be required to present a valid passport or a valid national identity card on entry, as the Republic of Ireland is not part of the Schengen Area. Be aware that some airlines require a passport, so please check with your airline before travelling.

If you're travelling on another passport, you may need a visa to enter the Republic of Ireland. Check our Travel page for more information.

Flying into Dublin ✈️

Dublin Airport (DUB)

If you’re travelling from Germany, you’ll most likely arrive at Dublin Airport (DUB). Remember to travel light without check-in luggage and don’t bring a bag larger than A4 size as it won’t be allowed inside the stadium. Also make sure you already have your return boarding pass downloaded to help speed up the departure process after the match.

🚍 Free Shuttle Bus: DUB Airport ⬅️➡️ Leverkusen Fan Meeting Point

Shuttle Buses will run from outside Terminal 2 to the Leverkusen Fan Meeting Point in Shelbourne Park. If you arrive in Terminal 1, it's a short walk to the other terminal.

🕖 Operating hours: From 07:00 on matchday

📍 Departure: Outside Terminal 2

🚌 Travel time: 35 minutes

🎫 For ticket holders only

Buses are accessible

All ticket holders can also use public transport for free on matchday within the greater Dublin area. There are direct bus connections from Dublin Airport to the city centre. Just show your mobile ticket when boarding the bus. From the city centre, you can either walk to your Fan Meeting Point or use the DART train service to Grand Canal Dock and enjoy a short walk from there.

If you land after 16:00 on matchday, please make your way to the shuttle bus promptly. Once you get to the Fan Meeting Point, head directly towards the stadium.

Road trip or ferry ride to Dublin ⛴️🚗

Coming to Dublin by car is not recommended due to the high traffic on matchday on top of the usual workday traffic and the lack of parking options around the stadium. However, if you do drive and come by ferry, please keep in mind that you’ll be asked to park close to the port and walk to the stadium, as you won’t be able to get anywhere close to the stadium on matchday.
