Here's another suggestion for accomodation.

Self catering appartments - only 100 euros per night - says it sleeps 2 adults and 2/3 children. Even if it was only two adults, its only 50 quid per night each. If it sleeps 4 adults, then only 25 euros per night

Link to s/c apts


I just clicked the link, we actually stayed there on the mr2oc irish drive last year, we were booked in to the b&b but it was full so some of us stayed across the road in the apts, they were up above shops, the setup was 2 bedrooms per apt with a shared bathroom, i think there was 2 beds in my room, a double and a single or 2 doubles. We parked in the b&b carpark but we were staying as b&b guests, I don't know if we'd be allowed do that if staying as self catering as the car park is very small

EDIT: the site shows a kitchen and living room, maybe we had all that, i never checked Kyle (GWrinkle) was there also, he might have a better memory

not sure how many rooms this place has but it seems like a nice spot and good prices

EDIT: ignore that, there aren't enough rooms!

Are we just looking for any hotel in Athlone or just close to the castle as possible?

I'd say anywhere in Athlone. Sure, if we take pics in the Castle, we'll be drving anyway. Did you find some decent accomodation ?

Ok, I was just talking to the owner, and they have a private car park which they will reserve for us, I've asked her for an initial quote for 8 to 12 people based on sharing, i'll update when she sends me a mail

Places of interest for photos (calendar shoot) are:

Visitor Attractions in Athlone:
Athlone Castle & Visitors Centre
Clonmacnoise Monastic Settlement
Blackwater Railway Bog Tour
Locke’s Distillery, Kilbeggan
Dun na Si heritage and Cultural Park, Moate
An Dun Transport Museum
Birr Castle Demesne
Strokestown House & Gardens
Belvedere House & Gardens
Claypipe Visitors Centre, Knockcroghery

Also: If we can plan out time efficiently we could always get a quick game of paintballing in on the way home:

I hadn't actually contacted them.

We don't want any Planes, Trains and Automobiles scenarios with the rooms !

That's a cracking hotel and it's on the Dublin side of the town. Price is fair, 49euro pps. Radisson hotels are top quality.

1 vote from me anyway.

seems like a good deal, i have no problem sharing a room but some people might and in that case it'd work out quite expensive.

i'd be well up for paintballing too, only been once and loved it

I take it the way we're doing it is that we're going to try agree on a given accomodation. But there's no group booking etc - its up to each person to organise their own/sharing. If they leave it too late and end up somewhere else nearby, I guess they can still drop into the residents bar of the "main" hotel.

Whats the plan for the evening - some food, drinks and then back to residents bar for a NA vs Turbo talk, mk1 vs mk2 vs mk3 etc and I want to try beat Ray and Mark in Texas Hold Em Law of averages says I can't loose again

Yeh the hotel probably is the best idea as we'd have everything such as food, bar, and we'd be in the town, The way i see it at the moment we should all know each other enough to share,

Myslef & swagger,

Rob & Mark ?

Slipsliderg & Spankys other half

Spanky & slipsliderg's other half

scoobywrk & mr2gal

And any one else wanting to come we'll organise something etc or bring someone with you?

Come on everybody. We are purposely having this centrally, in Athlone and out as far as Sept 18th to encourage and give as many people from all over the country a chance to attend. This is a big milestone. So far its all the usual people only. We are always meeting in Dublin and would like to see some people and cars from the South and West of the country, you know who you are!

If Spanky can come all the way from Moira, then Cork, Galway, Limerick, Clare, Mayo and so on can surely represent!

i would vote that we split the total cost of the rooms between everyone, that way if someone ends up having to have a room themselves it won't discourage them from attending. it would only mean a few extra euro if everyone chips in. i don't know if other people will agree..
