The Gathering at the Lansdowne hotel.

Postby IrishAL » Thu Aug 07, 2014 3:10 am

Some information for those attending the official event launch party at the Lansdowne tonight

Registrations will open at 6.30pm
The gathering will be outdoor to the front of the Hotel. The weather forecast is GOOOOOD! (if you can trust it). It looks like it will be a dry and sunny day with max temperatures about 19 degrees C.
The afternoon/evening will be cloudy but dry.

The Hotel are providing a BBQ for registered participants. This will consist of a burger, some chicken and spicy sausage and some side salads. There will be a vegetarian option.
The BBQ will commence at 6.30pm and continue to approx 8.30pm.

There will be some live traditional Irish music from 6.30 -8.30 courtesy of the Irish house party who play highly at the hotel. So come along early and enjoy the food and atmosphere.

Hotel Location
The Hotel is at no 29 Pembroke road Dublin 4. don't get this confused with Pembroke street which is in a different location, no Hotel and no Party !

From St Stephens green it is 1.6km to the hotel walking. Google states that this will take 16 minutes. ...I say 25.! google is only a teenager!

A taxi from St Stephens green area to the hotel should cost around 6 euro
A taxi from O'Connell street area will cost 10-12 euro .
There are loads of Taxis in Dublin and they all have a green taxi sign on the side. If you have an the Halo app. it's a great way to get a taxi in Dublin.

Looking forward to seeing you all.
