Nice one Marky. I was going to post some suggestions too.

For everyone's information the drive from Rosslare or Dublin/Dun Laoghaire to Castlegregory is about 4 hours at legalish speeds. For anybody coming in to Belfast from Stranraer you have to add another hour and a half. You might want to take this into account when looking at ferry arrival times on this side. There will be another ferry running from Swansea to Cork if they get a new boat in time. Cork to Castlegregory is two hours.

Should mention that Brittany Ferries go to Cork from Roscoff and Irish Ferries go to Rosslare from Roscoff and Cherbourg. Would be great to meet some TDMers from mainland Europe.

If there is enough interest I will try blagging a group discount. Fishguard to Rosslare will prolly be the most popular route? Lettuce snow if yar interested. I am guessing around 10bikes will be the magic number.

For some reason the ferries leaving from Liverpool take about 8 hours to get to Dublin. I guess the economy passengers must have to row? So it's a Holyhead departure for me - the ferries use engines on that route, crossing in under 2 hours wink.gif
I'll probably be going to Dun Laogh. Depart 5/7 @ 8:55. Return 8/7 @ 18:00

2002 TDM900 in glorious yellow, MRA Vario screen, Scottoiler, HEL Brakelines, Givi Luggage, TomTom Rider, Fender Extender, Datatool System 4 Alarm, Michelin PR3 tyres, Eastern Beaver 3-way fusebox & relay, Powerlet socket, Symtec Heated Grips.
2012 Honda Crosstourer VFR1200X. Hyperspeed tourer, the TDM is now relegated to winter hack and back-up bike!

1990 XTZ750 in black, standard apart from Micron silencer. Mechanical restoration complete, cosmetic restoration next on the agenda..
