Yeah, admin, I was gunna mention that, this may sound like a realy dodgey question, but about Leos- does it serve andy exotic fruit drinks? I'd better explain myself- I have a severe allergy to kiwi fruit and normally don't venture anywhere near pubs or supermarkets in case I come into contact with one- so if they're being servesd in Leos I won't be able to go.
Perhaps someone else could fill me in on this- but it's no big deal, I can wait till I'm there and get a parent to scout the place out before I go in! :lol:

sorry for my random request....

like G says, SEE YOU THERE!

You should be fine with Sleepy Hollow. Its basic but everyone I know who's been there likes it. And its only a few hundred yards (or metres if you prefer) from Leo's Tavern.
There is a mobile home park in Crolly behinf Paddy Ogs pub but I don't know whether you can camp there.

I'm struggling a bit with deciding from what I read online - I can't exactly afford 5 star hotels or anything like that. Just a decent hostel, b&b or maybe moderately priced hotel. I'd really appreciate any advice! :o

Lizzie,
Try this place. Its about five minutes walk from O'Connell St.

Who's andy?
No I've never seen an exotic cocktail in the place. Are you serious about the kiwi fruit? Rules out the trip to New Zealand then!

I'm getting a lsit of phone numbers together for accomodation and a few other things.
I'm also trying to find someone to do a few Irish classes - it would be useful to know how many are interested, how long you'll be in Gweedore and what time of the day to schedule them. If someone can come up with an effecient way of collecting this info I'd appreciate.

I've already indicated (to Mise) that I'd be interested in some Irish classes, provided it doesn't take too much of a bite out of other sightseeing and activities - three to four mornings would be ideal.

<technical rant style="backseat moderation" class="apologetic">
Admin - (sorry - a bit of backseat moderation gere :lol: ) instead of posting the phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and/or postal addresses of places into this thread, could you create a new forum group, add all members here to it, and post them there as a new thread?

I say this to prevent unregistered guests from viewing info such as phone numbers and addresses of potentially private places, which could result in them potentially receiving undesired communications. Same is true (especially true) of e-mail addresses and the like: they'd be harvested by "spambots" and hit with electronic abuse - a growing problem I'm afraid.

Either that, or PM each person who is going on this trip with the details: whichever is the least work for you!! Just an idea, OK :lol:

:D I have pmed admin with all the info I have now.

I wonder if all you who are coming have msn? It might be a good idea to agree upon a day and time every once in a while, so we can talk through a few details and have room for questions?

I was also thinking I could make some sort of booklet with info and send it out to each one of you? If there are any other ideas, please let me know.

That would certainly work, but wouldn't it also create a lot of eatra work for you mise, to say nothing of postage, etc?

These forums can be configured to have members belonging to member groups, and if Admin set one of these up (fairly easy to do) then any necessary / required personal and private info could be posted such that it's not viewable to outsiders, thus such info would be safe. It would also be quicker to update, and people would see it immediately in a "View posts since last visit" list.

My goodness, I'm having so much difficulty finding any free b&b's in Galway. :shock: Apparently it's the same time as some major horse racing event and the arts festival so this should be interesting. :| Wish me luck! :mrgreen:

Definitly interested in some Irish classes over here. They'll come in handy... er... sometime. :mrgreen:
