Northern Ireland North coast March 2019

Postby Sarahrs » Thu 21 Jun 2018, 00:34

Who would like to take pictures of giants causeway, and the Irish North Coast?

I’m suggesting a trip to Northern Ireland between Friday 22 March and finishing Monday 25 March. As this involv s flights giving a lot of notice so people can plan and book early to get the cheap deals.

There is no requirement for a passport as you can travel on a photo driving license. But a passport makes it easier.?

Basic plan
Friday arrive on the North coast and book into accommodation for the weekend.
Dinner in Derry on Friday for those that have arrived
Saturday and Sunday full days on the North Coast including a trip to Dongual/Ireland.
Monday depart. There is a 5pm flight at Belfast Ibternational to gatwick

Optional extras
Arrive on Thursday evening and stay in Belfast for one night and explore Titantic quarter and city centre.

Getting there
The cheapest option is likely to be fly into Belfast International airport using easyjet. (Cheapest flights be about £60 return). If necessary can get a bus to Derry where someone can pick you up.
The easiest option is flying into Derry airport-BMI flies from Stanstead (cheapest flights £45 each way). There is a flight Sunday evening that be used in case someone needs to back in time for the Monday.
In addition it is also possible to fly into Belfast city airport.
Please be aware that it will about 1.5 hours-2 hours from Belfast to the North Coast by Car.,

Getting around
There will be a requirement for wheels to maintain flexibility I’m suggesting cars rather than hiring a minibus. We can work out logistics nearer the time. But I suspect there will be enough spare seats for those that don’t wish to rent/drive a car.

Accommodation
There are a couple of options for accommodation including priemer inn or even a youth hostel for the three nights on the North coast. (Estimated coast about £120-150). Can look into further once have better idea of potential numbers.

Please do post if your interested.
