GETTING THERE

Ryanair (0818 303 030; ryanair.com) flies from Dublin to Poznan and Gdansk from €43 one-way.

Poznan and Gdansk's well-oiled tram and bus services will be running city/stadium runs from €0.75 per leg.

A handy bonus is that Euro 2012 ticketholders will have free public transport in Poznan for their match dates. Taxis in Poland are an affordable treat -- just make sure that the cab you hop into is metered.

STAYING THERE

Beds are being snapped up fast in Polska, but there's still room to revel at the official soccer cities in Gdansk (camp2012.pl) and Poznan (carlsbergfancamp.pl), where tents and chalets start from €31/€78.

For a little more leg room, budget hostelries in Gdansk (happy seven.com) and downtown Poznan (fusionhostel.pl) have rates from €40pps.
