I did it last year and I can't remember. I guess that must mean it was 
obvious. Looking at the map 
http://www.dublintourist.com/maps/dublin_suburban_rail.shtml I think I 
probably got on the DART at Connolly station, although Tara St or Pearce 
St would have been just as good. I think I just figured it would be 
easier to work out which train to get on if I was at the station.

One of us will pick you up from Bray, we just done have that level of 
detail on the lift share page - we'll have a phone number for you to 
call. I'll try and get that out to you later today.

I know at least one person with a car that wants to be in Dublin 
early-ish on Monday. I'm sure that we can work this out.
