    Good stuff Gary, we look forward to seeing you both there.
    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.

    dont know if this helps but if you book using Stenaline here http://www.stenaline.co.uk/mcn with the MCN on the end you can get a 20% on all crossings. It only applies to motorbikes but every little helps.

    Regards

    The HSS takes just two hours to make the crossing and the conventional ferry tales three and a half hours Dave.

    HSS leaves Fishguard at 11-30am arriving at 1-30 pm
    Ferry leaves at 2-30pm arriving at 6pm.

    The run from Rosslare to Aherlow is about 100 miles. I can send you a route for your GPS if you wish.

    Return ferries leave Rosslare at;

    Ferry leaves Rosslare at 9am arriving at 1-30pm
    HSS leaves at 3pm which gets you to Fishguard for 5pm.

    Nutt Travel is the most popular agent for the discerning Tosser crossing the Irish Sea. Their prices are usually best, so it may be worth your while to give them a ring.
