Travelling to Britain from Ireland you are exempt from the isolation period !
I'm not sure what you mean about returning to the UK, however at the end of my week's holiday I will drive back south, over the border and on to Dublin port for the ferry back to Holyhead, if that's what you mean. There is no need for people coming into Northern Ireland to isolate. At least not at the moment. Please God it stays that wayy.What about returning to the UK , if you decide to take up that option ?
Well thats it, we have cancelled this years trip to Ireland, and l have phoned Stenna Line and a full refund will be in my account within 7 working days. To be honest l think this is probably the most sensible, and right thing to do.
Hopefully try and get to lreland next year, and maybe have an extended stay.
It is not looking good for the rest of the year to be honest ! It looked like we had it fairly under control until they reopened some of the pubs. Plus the meat factories seem to be a law onto themselves. We have had outbreaks in meat factories in 3 counties and those counties have been put back on lockdown but the meat factories are allowed to stay open. Mind you they are owned by government political party supporters. As I said in another thread, it is not by accident that Ireland is known as the most corrupt country in Europe !
do you have details of the festivals , as I can’t find any , we are going to the North end of Septembet hopefully ,
Thanks for the prompt and forthright reply!, I’ve been wary of guides having been stung in Holland by a “guide” previously, hence my enquiry.I’ll be in touch via PM?Firstly Paul, I'm very sorry to hear about your buddy. Secondly, I personally would strongly advise against Melview Lodge. I stayed with Kevin Lyons and his family a few years ago, and I was bitterly disappointed. Not with the house or the hospitality - that was fine, but what you read on the internet and on his own site is very, very misleading. I spoke to him on the phone two months before my holiday and he promised he would pre-bait swims, put me on "tons of bream", promised me "Huge nets of rudd", all that sort of stuff. When I got there he hadn't done any pre-baiting, told me that the fishing was rubbish and sent me to places which he certainly was not "in the know about". Most other Irish (Kevin is from London) guest house owners I have spoken to since have told me that he gives them a bad name. Very, very unreliable. I travel to Ireland each year on my own, so if you would you like a few recommendations from me, feel free to PM me.
And today’s best guess prize goes to ..............I Think that 2021 will be a stay in the UK year, for the family holidays and fishing breaks.
The guy l usually travel to ireland with, would now rather go there for a golf break, and to go to a couple of horse race meetings, both of which l enjoy but can take them or leave them, would rather be fishing.
I am trying to get another mate interested in going to ireland with me, he has never been, but he seems to like the idea, but time will tell, could do with him making his mind up soon, then l can book the ferry and use my concession.
@baldpaul l am gussing that you are referring to Alf and his van, doing guided tours, via Anglers World?
an awful bloke.
