Entry and exit

Every effort is made by CitiPark staff to ensure smooth entry and exit to our Merrion Centre Car Park on first direct arena nights. For large events there may be a waiting period on arrival at the car park. Please allow for this as part of your journey time. After an event, waiting time to exit the car park is unavoidable, however we always have extra car park services and resources at these events to assist with ensuring the quickest possible exit.
