MATCHDAY GUIDE – Here is everything you need to know ahead of our game against Cork City at Turners Cross on February 25th 2021, with a 7:45pm Kick Off.
Getting to Turners Cross
Turners Cross is located in Cork City, just south of the River Lee. A link directly to the stadium on Google Maps is available HERE
You can get the Supporters bus down, the bus leaves the Connacht Hotel in Galway City at 3:30pm on Friday before the game, links for tickets are below:

We would recommend the use of the supporters bus as it drops you directly to the stadium without hassle and back to Galway afterwards too and you can save money compared to public transport.
You can drive from Galway to Cork City by following the M18 to Limerick City.
Once you reach Limerick City, you can follow the N20 through Charleville and Mallow or the N24 and M8 through Mitchelstown and Fermoy. Both have roughly the same estimated arrival times.
If you are going directly to the stadium we would recommend using the N24 and M8 from Limerick to Cork as it means you can drive around the City of Cork to Turners Cross Stadium with as little traffic etc… as possible.
If you are planning on visiting Cork City itself, we would recommend using the N20 route through Charleville and Mallow as it arrives directly into the heart of Cork City!
Please take note that there is an Irish U20 Rugby match on in Musgrave Park, which is close to Turners Cross and this may cause some traffic, so take this into account on your journey if driving.
TICKETS AND GETTING INTO THE STADIUM
We recommend supporters to allow extra time for the necessary ticket checks to be carried out at the stadium before entering the turnstiles, this can be a lengthy process at times, particularly as Cork City F.C. have only one ticket booth in operation for this game, so make sure to get your tickets online HERE to beat the queues.
The checkpoints will be clearly marked by Cork City F.C. who will help you with any queries you may have regarding stadium entry.
