I was having a rummage around on the internet and I found this place up in Gweedore, looks big enough to hold many many Brennans fans, what do you think???

thanks for that andy,
you guys can sort out accomodation there if ya want, but i'll be camping.. it's so much cheaper and easier than b+bs or hotels... maybe we could all sort out our own accomodation and just meet up early on in the mornings?
anywho, how long is this trip going to be... if it's only a weekend or a week we'll have to be ultra organised with transport, times, venues etc. and who's going to invite moya! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Poison Glen is beautiful.... on a bright, dry, windy day, because otherwise you get eaten by midges :mrgreen:

Pubs? Count me in if we're going to the Pubs. ^^ Always wanted to go to a real Irish Pub. Plus the alcohol is nice. ^^

Camping? Hehehehe, camping's fun. But it'd probably rain, just to annoy us :P .

*Would be going for the hell of it.* ^^ I'm a thrillseeker, what can i say.

Sounds like a great experiment Grania. Caravan parties are a great thing in Gaoth Dobhair (according to some of my friends). May I suggest doing an Irish course while you are there. It's great fun!

erm...
let's use the catchphrase saying "say what you see"
trailer tent
it's a tent in a trailor! lol the tent all kind of folds out from a trailor which ya stick on the bac of the car. ours is big enough - it has 2 double beds and a kings sides plus awning and 2 storage tnets. oh, and a my favourite bit - a mini fridge!
a little bird told me that moyab likes to go camping too.. are you thinking what i'm thinking? nah, i wreckon that's too far fetched, so i'm not even going to voice the thought.
