09/05/2023 – 11/05/2023
The Spring Break will be held in Shamrock Lodge Hotel, Athlone on the 9th, 10th and 11th of May 2023
The Spring Break arrangements are:
€85.00 pps, €105 Single per night DBB. Tours will be organised - probably including Athlone Castle and Museum, Clonmacnoise, a Shannon Cruise -possibly on a Viking boat -, a Distillery visit (Kilbeggan or Tullamore DEW).
The Shamrock Lodge is not a ‘big’ hotel – just 40 rooms and some apartments which will be available to us. The apartments have two twin/double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a sitting room. They have convenient parking and a covered walkway to the hotel, and occupants will have their breakfasts in the hotel with everyone else.
The hotel asks that participants book with them at least 8 weeks before the event - i.e. March 14th. This in important as it is a longer lead in than usual, but understandable given that rooms may be in short supply. The hotel will only allow a maximum of 20 single rooms at the €105.00 nightly rate. The normal single DBB rate is €120.00 per night.
