Was in Cardiff twice last year for rugby world cup (yes I like football and rugby ) flights to Cardiff and Bristol were ridiculous prices. Flew in / out of Manchester and got the train down. Direct train with arriva Wales. Only thing is it takes about 3-4 hours depending on stops but plenty of time for cans!

FAW will not of course confirm stadium for a while but potentially with a huge influx of Irish supporters for weekend and last match they may switch games from Cardiff City stadium (33,000) to Millennium Stadium (80,000 capacity).
 
Course if both of us tank in the qualifiers where completely adrift with 6 months to go I think they may opt for the local park.

Holyhead to Cardiff by train takes about 4 1/2 hrs direct service and potentially combined with Ferry ticket could be done reasonably cheaply.
 
Alternative fly to Gatwick .................... train to Cardiff via Reading avoiding London or other airports and then Train from Paddington if Cardiff / Bristol / Birmingham options are too costly.
 
Figure if tickets become a prob will end up in Welsh end as Welsh fans sorted me for tickets for Belgium game in Bordeaux and also for France games in Lyon.

If Wales are going well then I can see them moving some games from the Cardiff City stadium, there's going to be a huge uplift in interest over there after how they've done in the Euros.

Not if you are travelling from Dublin. The train to Rosslare is slow and the journey from Pembroke / Fishguard involves a heap of changes: it's much simpler via Holyhead.

I'm definitely going that way, anyway.

FAW have confirmed to fans they will be using Cardiff City for the qualifiers. which given away supporters they can justify.
 
They however were non committal regarding our game to their own fans, the 70,000 fans rather than 30,000 has some attractiveness. Even more so if this was the game to celebrate their qualification.
 
It will come down to cash for FAW in the end.

I was looking at the routes awhile back and thought I'd do the ferry and then I seen the time from Holyhead to Cardiff . 4 hours on a ferry and 4.5 hrs on the train . Give or take a hour or two for getting to the ferry and its 10 hours . Feck that , U.K. Airport and train into Cardiff , remember it's a Tuesday night game . So if travelling on a Tuesday you will more than likely getting in 2 hours before KO . Get to the hotel bags dropped and heading for the ground shortly after that . So it could be a long aul day . Defo 2 days off work

If annual leave is a problem for Wales away next year then there is a way of going to it and only taking 1 day off and not 2.

Jump on a direct bus from Cardiff to Heathrow or London Victoria at 11:15pm or later after the match and grab the first flight out of London Tuesday morning. You should land in Dublin sometime around 8am.

A car and five people to Britain on the ferry is €500ish return, regardless of what route.
Rail & Sail (via Fishguard) is €41-47 each way.
 
Car might be just as handy.

Just wanted to say how much i admired your vocal support at the two games i attended (v Sweden in Paris and v Belgium in Bordeaux). Alongside the Icelanders (who I really enjoyed seeing in Nice), your supporters are great.

I am a Welsh lad from Cardiff, btw.

Had the pleasure of meeting #oscardelta and his lad at the Belgium match.

Looking forward to our game in March and all the best v Serbia and Georgia this Autumn.

Most hotel booking sites wont take bookings until one year from date ie. until Oct 6 2016. Hotels.com are an exception. They have Ibis Budget City Centre Hotel, near Stadium, Railway Station etc for €40 for double room. Cheap as chips for perfect location.

That is excellent information and a superb price!

Ibis Budget Cardiff city centre is a 6 or 7 minute walk from the pub/restaurant area of St Mary's Street and the Brewery Quarter and under 10 minutes walk to the main railway station. Its about 20 minute walk to the stadium.

Novotel Cardiff, is right next to the above - at €75/night.

The official HI Youth Hostel is also right next to these two, although it is fully booked on match day. Beds at 22 pounds available Sunday and Tuesday nights though. http://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/cardiff-central

If you are flying into Cardiff airport, T9 - The Cardiff Airport Express Bus Service stops at the Customs House, which is about 5 mins away from the above hotels. costs 5 pounds or 7 euro. See http://www.trawscymru.info/t9/" rel="nofollow - http://www.trawscymru.info/t9/

Not sure about the RiverHouse (overlooking the Millennium Stadium) and only 10 minutes walk to Cardiff City stadium.

A very decent other option would be Ibis Cardiff Centre (the non Budget one, costing 60 euro) on Churchill Way, which is smack bang in Queen Street, and might FEEL more safe to walk around after dark. Especially if there are ladies among you. East Tyndl Street is a little secluded and has an industrial feel. Again, its only a 4 or 5 minute walk to St Davids 2 shopping centre and John Lewis, though

Just a word of warning that hotels.com are a useless shower. I had runs in with them over hotels charging me despite free cancellation. Got nothing but incoherent and grammatically disabled staff when I contacted hotels.com. i'd swear they were using google translate to communicate with me.

eventually gave up on them and had to get my cc company to do a chargeback in order to get my money back.

They are owned by Expedia which would make you think they are market leaders but they are in fact atrocious.

Stansted to Cardiff is a train, a tube and a train - Probably about 4 hours in total.

You could fly into Heathrow with BA (Not cheap, I know), get a bus to Reading which will take about 30 mins and then connect with a Cardiff train which will take about 90 mins.

there's direct buses from Heathrow to Cardiff. Very convenient and relatively quick as it's motorway all the way to Cardiff from Heathrow.

If you book in advance BA flights can be very reasonable.

Flybe started direct daily flights to London City airport - currently around £40 each way. Although this is temporary, both Flybe and Cardiff airport seem to suggest that it will continue

Salzburg: fly into Bristol or Birmingham.

Lufthansa fly from Birmingham to Munich. It should be under €100 once they go on sale in a few weeks time. Lufty don't fly to Bristol though. Manchester is about €120 but it should be cheaper in terms of the train on to Cardiff, even though it takes a bit longer, because of the idiosyncrasies of UK train ticket advance pricing.

Easyjet fly Vienna to Bristol and Manchester. It's a fair bit cheaper to get from Bristol to Cardiff than it is from Manchester or Birmingham.

Ain't that the truth : Heading to Liverpool for the Hull game this weekend and for the first leg of my journey it is cheaper to buy a single to one of the stations between here and Birmingham, and then a single to Birmingham than just buying one single even though I will not get off the train at any stage.

Anyways, the split your ticket website will be dead handy for anybody needing to get trains in the UK for the Wales game.

Nah, not if you're travelling from Dublin, only from the South East really.... unless you are driving, in which case it probably is better.

Also, heading back, there is no train north from Rosslare after the ferry arrives at 18:00. There's a train that departs at 17:55, but the ferry doesn't arrive til 18:00, which is utterly retarded. That said, you could get the bus, but that is a separate ticket, unlike the sail rail via Holyhead, which is all one ticket from Dublin to Cardiff.

Unless you live close enough to Rosslare to catch the 09:00 ferry over, it's the 9pm ferry, a 2am train from there, and an arrival in Cardiff at like 5am. I wouldn't recommend that route unless either you are driving or you live in the South East and have an independent route to and from Rosslare.

Just checked it there,plus an hour from Stanstead to Paddington,looked a lot of routes, through from Munich and Vienna,even Ryanair ,Salzburg -Stanstead -Tenerife -Cardiff but the dates don't work,would prefer to avoid going into London if possible.


Stansted to Cardiff is a train, a tube and a train - Probably about 4 hours in total.

You could fly into Heathrow with BA (Not cheap, I know), get a bus to Reading which will take about 30 mins and then connect with a Cardiff train which will take about 90 mins.
 
there's direct buses from Heathrow to Cardiff. Very convenient and relatively quick as it's motorway all the way to Cardiff from Heathrow.

If you book in advance BA flights can be very reasonable.


If it's the National Express coaches then they take over 30 hours as they stop into the likes of Bristol on the way etc.
 


It is national express and it is a direct bus service with no stopping. It takes about 3 hours and departs every hour during the day.

I've taken it in the past, very cheap when booked in advance and a comfortable way to travel.

Lufthansa fly from Birmingham to Munich. It should be under €100 once they go on sale in a few weeks time. Lufty don't fly to Bristol though. Manchester is about €120 but it should be cheaper in terms of the train on to Cardiff, even though it takes a bit longer, because of the idiosyncrasies of UK train ticket advance pricing.

Easyjet fly Vienna to Bristol and Manchester. It's a fair bit cheaper to get from Bristol to Cardiff than it is from Manchester or Birmingham.

SD  Clap

That didn't show up on skyscanner or Rome2Rio,just checked their website,schedule only runs until March so i guess i will be able to book it around Christmas,handy 20 quid trains direct from Salzburg to Vienna airport too, using that service  for Serbia and Moldova instead of flying via Munich.

Paulie, you are in the posh 60 euro/night place.
Churchill Way is a stones throw from Queen Street (the main shopping street) and a lot busier with pubs and restaurants, right next to you.
East Tyndel Street is a little out of the way, in a slightly more secluded / more industrial area.
Still, its just a 6 or 7 minutes walk to the nightlife/bars/restaurants of St Mary's etc.

There is actually a cheap Travellodge on St Mary's itself for 30 quid/night as well as another one on Queen Street for 40 quid

I'll answer it anyway KC, someone can delete or move it later. Welsh FA confirmed their home games for 2016 are going to be played in Cardiff City stadium, they have not confirmed anything about 2017 yet. 

There are those of the view that they would move to the bigger one if demand is there & they are in contention for 1st/2nd, but also some think they won't move it as it would mean giving us more tickets & they might not want to do that. Not too many experts on the workings of the Welsh FA around here, so who knows. 

Personally, I always believe if yer looking to know what lads in suits might do, follow the money, ergo they will move it if demand exists.

Don't doubt the sincerity of the Welsh FA lads ya met SL, but I'm going to stick with following the money. Ya also have to remember, they could have easily confirmed those games for Cardiff City already, but they didn't. That alone would suggest that the subject of moving a game or 2 to Millenium has at least occurred to someone at decision making level.

Serbia beat the Welsh next month and it will be more than likely Cardiff as they will struggle to top the group . Then we beat them in March and they are totally f**ked . Then we can take over Cardiff City ground and have a party after topping our group

Booked up in the IBIS myself for this for a reasonable price but was looking at prices in Dublin for the game in March just out of curiosity to see what the Welsh would be paying. Bloody hell but Dublin is an expensive place to stay. The only half way reasonable places (I didn't look at Air BnB to be fair) are hostels and you're still paying big money to stay in a 10 bed dorm. One hostel was outrageous, €318 for 3 nights in a dorm.

there must be something on that weekend , I remembered to book by chance a couple of months ago and was shocked at the pretty limited choice - got a decent enough deal in the end but there wasn't a lot of choice
