The Copper coast is located between Dungarvan in the west and Tramore in the east, towards Dungarvan in the west, more precisely between Fenor / Dunhill / Kilfarrasy and Stradbally.
We could start from Dungarvan and work east. I suggest this as I think Dungarvan is a much nice place to stay than Tramore. It would also mean (I think) that it would shorten the home trip for those who would have traveled farthest to get there.
Sounds good. I've sent my man to the shop to get a set of tide tables for us (he works in Dungarvan). Have you used any hotels/b&bs in Dungarvan David? Any reccommendations? If not I can get Adrian to ask his colleagues for the local knowledge and I'll do some ringing around.
I haven't use B&B's in Dungarvan but I believe I have a list of them at home from Failte Ireland. I did stay in the Park hotel there is really nice but I think probably too expensive for an APUG outing . There is the Clonea/Gold Coast but it is some distance from the town and personally it's not one I would recommend.
As far as I can remember there are a couple of B&B's listed on the Dungarvan tourism site www.dungarvantourism.com, we would probably want one close to the town/town center but with parking. I think if we can get together a list of who is staying overnight we night be able to strike a deal with the proprietor of which ever B&B we use.
My normal approach is to call and ask for their standard rates and then ask what discount they will give for x number of rooms.
