For EJC Ireland 2006, we have secured the use of the largest indoor

hall in Ireland, with plenty of fields for tents, camping and fun, all

on the same site. We realise that the dates are significantly earlier

than many of you were expecting, but if we held the EJC in August, as

in previous years, we would be unable to use a site of this quality.

Our priority is to deliver a great convention, and that is what we are

concentrating on doing!



Now added to the website :

Travel Information

Photos of the hall

Accommodation Options



Forums now added - arrange lifts to Millstreet, and chat about the EJC here!





Please direct any questions or comments to info@ejc2006.net



We look forward to seeing you all here!



Sln,



Helen

Galway is about an hour and a half away from shannon and you can get on the bus outside of the airport...

Dublin is about 4 1/2 hours away... Head for Limerick on the bus outside the station then Dublin

Cork is about 2 1/2 hours away... Limerick Cork...

Galway is the cheapest, closest and coolest wink

Posted:update! thanks for the offer ado-p but things just flipped

so now my flight has me going through dublin for a layover on the way to shannon, i suppose i could just get off the plane and stay in dublin... but i'm very tight on my budget and shannon is closer. obviously i'd like to stay with one of you guys, but how much would it take for me to get from dublin to ejc?

otherwise i suppose i'll do ado-p's floor! even though i think i'll be a zombie by the time i get there. less flying on the 8th does have its charm.

also, anybody still got a spare tent? and are we really sleeping on a huge convention center floor?

Posted:For Arashi, and anyone else interested (see the map below for locations):

Lisa and I live in Bangor (on the right hand side of Northern Ireland (marked by the pink line), above Newtownards)...

A few days before the EJC, Garthy and his yellow van crew are heading over to stay with us.

A few days later, Lisa will be going to Dublin.

On the 6th/7th or 8th (not yet decided), Garthy and I (and anyone else from the north wishing to join our happy little convoy), will be heading down to Tara.

Tara is the ancient seat of the high kings of Ireland - a very special place of beautiful energy where the irish spinners meet up every now and again. It's just above Navan on the map (follow the map down from Bangor, on the way to Dublin, you will find Meath).

We'll stay there for a night, or two, soaking up the peace, until Lisa (and anyone else she collects) comes up from Dublin to meet us... however, we'll need to know how many there will be, to make sure there are enough spaces in the cars.

Then, we'll all head down to the EJC.

If you find Tralee on the map (bottom left-hand side) and Cork (bottom most city) and draw a line between them - Millstreet would be in the middle of that line.

Shannon is just above Millstreet, Arashi... and Galway is above that again.

It entirely depends on yourselves, what you want to do...

Either way, we'll see you in Millstreet hug

You might be as well off to get off in dublin. Its the Hub to everywhere in Ireland. North (Belfast) South (Cork) West (Galway)

The cost to get from Dublin to Cork is about the same as getting from Galway to Cork.. Galway is a little bit closer but not much. Plus if you get of in shannon its twenty euro for the bus to galway... but there may be a chance to score a lift to cork from there...

Who wants to hire a bus!!! Rock!!!

Just make sure if you get off in dublin you get the local bus service into town... number 16... seriously guys... this bus is 1.20 . The 'Airport Bus' Is something like three or four times that price. And do not get a taxi unless you have loads of cash. It would pay for a bus trip to galway.

Here are some relative distances and costs based on the bus service. If anyone is on a budget, do not under any circumstances get on a train.... smile

Dublin - Cork. Five hours. Thirty Euro

Dublin - Belfast. Four/Five hours Thirty Euro

Dublin - Galway. Four hours. Thirty Euro.

Shannon - Cork. Two hours ish. Twenty Euro.

Shannon - Galway One hour and a Half. Twenty Euro

Shannon - Limerick. Thirty minutes. Less than ten euro.

Limerick - Cork. Two Hours this the Galway Shannon Limerick Cork Route.

Limerick - Dublin. Three, Four or Five hours depending on traffic. Twenty Five Euro.

prices based loosley on these guys + - five bucks www.buseireann.ie

www.aircoach.ie This bus service is often less than half the cost of the one above... If you can get it. Do... More leg room.. less stops.. Nicer drivers.

Thats about as much as i can sqeeze out of my brain for this morning.

EJC... In Ireland. Amazing smile

Aidan... I'm pretty sure your bus details between Belfast and Dublin are fairly off... but Lisa will be along in a while to explain...


Anyways...

It might be a good idea to get a wee list going, so we know who's coming...

Tara trip to the EJC:

Eveish
Andrea?
Garthy (who else is coming with you?!)

Dublin - Belfast. Four/Five hours Thirty Euro






eek

Aidan, i'm not sure where you think Belfast is, but it certainly does not take 4-5 hours. I travel up and down between Belfast & Dublin almost every fortnight and it takes 2 and a half / 3 hours tops, and the ticket is 18 return. As far as I know one-way is 12.

The price to Cork is 18 too, although this one can take up to 5 hours.

Anyways.... can't wait to see you all biggrin

And Andrea, I have a beautiful pair of purpley flags ready & waiting for your arrival smile

See you all soon hug

Posted:So a few quick things...
Anybody who's pre-reg'd in Ireland should have received a confirmation email - if not, it's probably because I don't have a valid email address for you... my contact details are at http://www.eja.net/en/list.html
Email is better than phoning as then I have your contact details written down!

I've also put up a pdf of all (that I could think of) the different methods of public transport to get to Millstreet (from Dublin, Cork, Farranfore (Kerry airport) and Shannon) - along with the prices of tickets (mainly return if I can remember correctly) - note that return tickets in Ireland tend to be much cheaper than 2 singles... and most return tickets are open month returns.

Belfast? Its right up there by Iceland right? wink

The prices change. You can get to cork for 8 euro between monday and friday off peak too...

I'd only had two hours sleep that day. The rest of them could well be off by an hour or a few quid aswell...

Posted:Do you mean our little adventure to Tara?

Or an entirely different adventure?

Arashi... I think you have a couple of options (depending on when you arrive?)...

1. Fly into Dublin, then get a connecting flight to Belfast (rather expensive). Extra journey time, with transfers etc, will be about 2 hours. I'll collect you at the airport, you can stay in our house, go on a few local touristy missions, then travel down with me to Tara and Cork.

2. Fly into Dublin, then get Aircoach bus from outside the airport door to Belfast. Extra journey time should be about 3 hours. Cost: 12 euro. I'll collect you in Belfast, and you can stay with us etc... and travel down.

3. Fly into Dublin. Ask one of the lovely Dubliners if you can stay at theirs. Shouldn't be a problem, I'm sure someone will look after you! When you arrive, you can decide when you want to travel out to Tara (or somewhere else closer), and we'll pick you up en route to Cork (you'll probably have to take a bus to meet us though - as I won't be going in to Dublin).

4. Fly into Dublin. Ask one of the lovely Dubliners if you can stay at theirs. Find a Dubliner who is driving out to Cork (there must be someone!) and travel with them. Best bet for this is to post in the Irish thread... or on the EJC website.


So then. Mister Arashi, poi dancer from Texas, USA, it's time to make up your mind.
Which of these lovely options will you choose?

(or something else, I haven't thought of?)

biggrin

Take care
x


PS: Oops... yes, I suppose it would be good to get lifts sorted out too...

Andrea and her friend will be here too. And Lisa and I. And Garthy and Eveish.

Garthy, do you lots of extra room in the yellow van?
Can you fit in a Texan?

He's quite skinny smile ubbangel

then we can all head to millstreet together for adventure number 2 ubbrollsmile
