Anything happening on the group booking idea or are we better off just booking ourselves with this Stenna discount code?

Not booked my ferries yet but given that I'm not to keen on spending all day on the motorway I'm tempted to get a B&B or hostel near Fishguard on the friday night rather than leave home and silly o'clock to catch the 11:30 Fishguard-Rosslare on Saturday the 5th. Anyone else interested in doing this? A quick google found a couple of B&B's for 22.50 and a backpackers hostel for 16 (sharing a 4 bunk room).

I assume a fair few people are aiming for the 15:00 Rosslare-Fishguard on the way back on Saturday the 12th?

You're going out on a different day to me aren't you? Reckon I'll have to take the later one out and not get to the RTT venue until 11:00pm, do they have last orders around there?

I'm half tempted now to either find a B&B in Rosslare on the way back and get the 9am on Sunday, or get the 21:15 on Saturday, find a place in Fishguard that doesn't mind me turning up at 1:00am, and then have a Sunday morning bimble around South Wales unsure.gif Don't really fancy a 4 hour motorway ride starting at 1am blink.gif

If it is any help with your planning I reckon 4 hours from Dublin/Dun Laoghaire to Castlegregory and a little longer from Rosslare at legalish speeds.
