Short Stay 1

The parking arrangement worked very well. I had to change the Car registration number at the last minute before my trip and l had no problems getting in or out of the car park. The only criticism was that we had booked a disabled parking space and there was nothing to say wether the blue badge needed to be left in the car. As we were hiring a car in Ireland it would of been handy to be able to take the badge with us.

Overall experience was good, easy to find and plenty of spaces. I knew before I went that there was no bus service to the terminal and that it is a fairly short walk. I was lucky that the weather was o k, but I can imagine that it would be a very unpleasant experience if it had been icy or pouring with rain!
