Ireland @ Lough Melvin Holiday Centre
Oct 26 – Nov 2 all-day

Hello All, Following on from the success of our trip to Ireland in
October 2018 plans are already moving forward for a follow up trip in
October 2019. The dates being Saturday 26th October – Saturday 2nd
November. We already have two cars booked and five people going. Stena
Line are currently offering 30% discount for early bird bookings. (I can
forward you the link and you can also raise some money for GCRG in the
process by using Easyfundraising) This is more than we got last year and
makes quite a considerable difference. Taking advantage of the Premium
Booking and the Stena Lounge Plus a car and two passengers return has
worked out at £293.00 all in. A very good deal. We have also taken
advantage of booking rooms early at the Travelodge in Hollyhead for the
Friday Night. Currently £34.00 for a family room. With the ferry
terminal only 10 minutes down the road it makes for a great start to the
trip and takes away the need to get up early on the saturday morning to
travel up. Yes Ok I appreciate you need to be able to take the Friday
afternoon off to do this but it is well worth it. We again plan to stay
at the Lough Melvin Center in Garrison where last year we had Bed/
Breakfast and an evening meal for £35.00 a head which was fantastic
value for money. I have not as yet confirmed prices for this year but I
am sure it will be a similar good value figure. The Center gives us
everything we require and it is only a short drive to the caves. Last
year there was the opportunity to get underground everyday and also
plenty of walking and other activities.If you are interested in joining
the trip please let me know. I can’t guarantee the weather but everyone
who went last year had a fantastic time and there are caves for all
abilities.
