    I've checked around Brittas & Blessington for a B&B without sucess and what occurs to me "What about Naas?". It's a big town and only 50 minutes from our site. I know that it does suit me, but that's not my motivation for suggesting it - I swear.

    Cheers

    I'm going to throw in Kippure Lodge it's about 12 km from Manor Kilbride and 4km from Cloughlea which means we can started early. It's €30 a night (€10.50 extra for a full Irish) and the setting look stunning. The only problem seems to be the bar.. but I'm sure we can work something out :o

    If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?

    Sile,
    When I was up at Cloghleagh bridge we also went to Kippure lodge , I remember that there were great walks in the woods. Only for the fact that it rained all day did we not bother to try them out. But they could be well worth checking depending on the weather.
    In other words I'm changing my suggestion from Naas to Kippure.

    Cheers
    Vincent

    Thanks Vincent, I have never been there myself, but it really does look like a beautiful setting, and one well worth wandering around in it's own right. I suppose if the worst comes to the worst, we can always do portraits/still life in the lodge!

    From what I can see on the site Fintan, they will open the bar "on request" for groups of 10 and upwards. I can always ring them to see would they be willing for a few less.. or maybe we could canvas a few more to join us?

    Reading back in the thread, I make it that we're at 7 confirmed as coming? Do we have any other takers?

    It would be great to have the accomodation close enough to the shooting location and walking distance of a pub so we can have a pint or two in peace.

    It may be easier easier to change shooting location

    Roundwood is fine but I think the B&B's are a couple of kilometres outside the village. Walking distance, but not staggering distance perhaps!

    Laragh has Lynham's Laragh Inn, the Wicklow Heather restaurant and reasonable B&B's within easy walking distance. You could just stay at Lynham's Hotel to the rear of the Inn.

    Cloughlea is a short drive over Sally Gap (via Glenmacnass waterfall).

    I live quite close to Laragh (and Roundwood) so if there is any 'face-to-face' arranging needed, I could do that.
