    Hi guys.

    I am looking for accommodation in Wesport for two nights (July 7 - 9) for 12 people and have been on the websites of all the hotels there. The prices quoted are ridiculous, some places are looking for €120 per person per night.:eek: I would appreciate any advice or links you may have. We need six twin rooms. It is my stag party but I would imagine that it may not be as rowdy as normal as most of the group are married with kids and well into their thirties.

    Many thanks.

    We stayed in the Westport Woods (36 of us) on Saturday night for a stag but they shafted us as they charged us €300 a room for one night. They are applying this greedy policy of allowing people to book only 2 nights at the weekend instead of just the one night you need.

    I read in the Sunday Times yesterday that alot of hotels outside of Dublin are now doing this to wedding guests which is ridiculous as weddings are costing people (ie bridegrooms and guests) enough money without this kind of rubbish.

    Try searching for self catering apartments like The Harbour Mill Apts, I am not sure what their rates are like though!

    Stayed in B&B The Quays Bar (on spec) two weekends ago.

    €30 per person, highly recommend the place.

    You need to move quick for that time of the year.

    I will try this again tomorrow because when I tried to make a booking, nothing happened.

    Have you thought about staying in castlebar, is only a 10-15 min drive away, ans there are always alot of cabs. Is alot more reasonable to stay there too.

    I thought this was a great idea but when I suggested it, I got shot to pieces.

    Thanks for the reply.
