Just got email confirmation of my booking from Dorren - I think someone has been tipping her off about our snoring:

Hi Chris,
You are now booked for the hostel and we will do the best we can to put snorers with snorers and non with non!!!


I never mentioned snoring in my email rolleyes.gif

Got a confirmation back saying the rooms sleep form 2 up to 6 so we should be able to segregate the snorers in one or two room. TeDeum, you're in to your music, got any soundproofing we can line thier room with? laugh.gif

I've booked for four nights from Saturday 5th July 2008 to Tuesday 8th, departing on the morning of the 9th. Ferrying from Liverpool or Birkenhead is by far my easiest option - anyone else traveling these days & on this route?

Fishguard-Rosslare sailings on the 5th are 02:45, 11:30, 14:30 and 18:30. I guess there'll be a fair few of us on the 11:30. Doubt ferry companies give group discounts though.

Looks to be 100 for a return with the bike. Pembrook-Rosslare is cheaper but only 02:45 and 14:30 aren't great times. I'll probably get the 15:00 on the way back on the 12th.

No. This time it is solid. You can email Dorren again and ask for a confirmation to be sure, to be sure if you want.
