We promised you a Liverpool match, and here it is, in a trip with 24 hours of fun, travel and adventure, so definitely not for the queasy! This is a day trip by coach and ferry to see Liverpool v Bournemouth on Wednesday April 5th, 2017, so the group leaves in the early hours of Wednesday morning and you won’t land back in Ireland until the wee small hours of Thursday April 6th.
Meet the coach at Dublin Ferry Terminal at 7.00am on the morning of Wednesday April 5th, where you’ll board Irish Ferries ‘Ulysses’ and spend the morning exploring this fantastic ship. Enjoy the stunning coastal views and experience the age-old tradition of the arrival and departure of the ship from the Sandycove Promenade Deck (Deck 11). Taking a refreshing stroll on the wide walkways while enjoying the open air is must.
Catch the latest movie releases in the two screen cinema with Dolby surround sound and refreshment kiosk. These modern cinemas offer tiered seating and all the films change regularly. Or there’s Cyclops Family Entertainment Centre, which provides a high-tech world where you can test your skill with the latest video and electronic games. There is also a specially constructed climbing area for young children.
Kick off for this match is not until 8pm, but LFC’s Family Park is open three hours before kick-off on a matchday. Located on Anfield Road, the Family Park is bursting with loads of great interactive activities, including an inflatable five-a-side football pitch, face painting, table footballs, target cages where you can test your shooting skills, and a fantastic speed cage. We also have live music acts and freestylers in the park to get you in the mood for the game. As well as loads of great activities, LFC’s cheeky mascot, Mighty Red, will be there to meet and greet families.
Within the park they offer a variety of food options, including the ‘Grill’ bar, which serves a variety of succulent burgers amongst a number of other dishes, the ‘Chippy’ bar, which sells your traditional chip shop offerings including fish and chips, pies and sausages, and the Coffee bar, which serves a variety of special coffees and locally sourced cakes and sandwiches. We also have a bar serving alcoholic beverages, including club sponsor Carlsberg.
The Family Park is free to enter – simply show your match ticket.
Experience the Family Zone located in the Anfield Road Stand. The Family Zone is designed with families in mind and is the perfect way for families to enjoy Anfield’s electric matchday atmosphere. The Family Zone has lots of interactive activities to keep all members of the family entertained including face painting, refreshment kiosks and a huge 120 metre painted wall which has loads of cool facts and information about LFC.
Then it’s Kick-off at 8pm! Enjoy Liverpool v Bournemouth, and at full-time whistle make your way out of the stadium and meet the coach for transfer back to the ferry.
Set for departure at 2.40am, you can enjoy a snooze and some relaxation after a long day, in the James Joyce Balcony Lounge with reclining seats, before the ferry docks in Dublin at 5.55am on Thursday April 6th.
