By train, need to go to Dublin city, is long and expensive

This is NOT advised.

From Dublin airport you would need to a bus into Dublin city. And then a second bus to the train station. This could take between 1 and 2 hours.

And then the first train takes about 3 hours from Dublin to Athenry and is much more expensive than the bus. The bus offers 2 choices per every hour to choose from and costs €12.

And a second train from Athenry to Gort.

And then a taxi for the last 6 miles.

Dave will try to team you up

On your booking form, there is a drop down box asking “How will you get to the centre?”

Please do NOT select “Getting Lift”, as Dave will assume that one of your friends is giving you a lift.

If you select “Public Transport”, Dave will email you 3 days before the start of the retreat date, to put you in contact with anybody else to share a taxi from Galway city to the centre. We don’t team people up before that, as often people’s plans change.
