Great stuff! I’ll be there!

[…] Shall we go!?  […]

Hi everyone. The Bridge Club is less than ten minutes walk from the city centre and is only about 15 minutes walk from Salthill so any accommodation in the city or in Salthill should be within 30 walking distance. The following is a list of some B&B’s nearby:

Dún Aoibhinn House (right beside Bridge Club) 087 9306167
Inishmore Guesthouse (5 min walk) 091 582639
The White House (10 min walk) 091 529399
Atlantic View (10 min walk) 091 582109
West Winds (10 min walk) 091 520233
Ocean Crest (10 min walk) 091 589028

I can’t vouch for any of those as I haven’t stayed in any of them and I’m judging some books by their covers. If anyone has a place they’d recommend then please post it.

There are no hostels in the immediate vicinity of the Bridge Club but, like I said, anywhere in town will still be within walking distance. I think the nearest one is Barnacles (091 568644).

See you all soon!
