Message Board > All Aboard for Ireland - from Ed Miller

All Aboard for Ireland!

For several years now, my Lenox roommate, Scott Reynolds (`66) (and wives!) have travelled to the British Isles together, including several trips to Ireland….a land of great beauty, friendly people, and great golf.

I’m interested in knowing how many Lenox lads (and/or significant others) would be interested in a trip to Ireland, either in the fall of 2011, or fall of 2012 (after summer prices have subsided a little).

A plan might be to have a week of golf with just the lads, and then invite others to join us for a second week. (Or…those just interested in golfing can go home, and others can join us for the second week.)

We’ve found it’s really easier to get a single place for the entire week, and travel to and from each day, returning to the same place…rather than traveling around the country, packing and unpacking each day, looking for a new B&B each night, etc. Although traveling to Ireland, and traveling within Ireland isn’t inexpensive, renting a big place together, and dividing the cost of rooms, cars, fuel, food, etc., etc., makes it a little more affordable. I would estimate the per person weekly cost as follows: airfare $700, contribution toward car, fuel, and insurance $250, accommodations (probably sharing) $200, golf $350 (we’ll be rained out a couple of times), and food $200 = $1,700.00. Even with trinkets and a couple of nightly beverages it would cost less than $2000 per man (including golf), per week. A second week would probably be less expensive, since the emphasis might not be on golfing, and there’s only one airfare to purchase.

Listed here are several manor houses, castles, and other large places of accommodation which could be used as a base camp for a week or two. I’m not familiar with any of them, although I do know where the counties are within Ireland. Perhaps someone interested in the trip, or someone just interested in helping us out, could visit these websites and get some specifics, particularly cost and availability. We’re interested in number of bedrooms, set-up (# of beds per room, for example), total number accommodated, etc. If something looks like a particularly good deal, please bring it to my attention.

Here’s what’s out there:

DISCLAIMER!

I should probably add that anyone traveling abroad, particularly in a large group, has to expect problems…and be good-natured in dealing with them. As meticulously as we might plan, things go wrong….cars aren’t available, accommodations aren’t what they’re supposed to be, golf reservations aren’t honored, etc., etc. Simply put, that’s part of the travel “experience”!

Having said that, if you are interested in going to Ireland, for a week of golf or otherwise, please contact me, and I’ll get you in the “loop”. We’ll see how much interest there is, and go from there.

Best wishes to you all.
