  1. Arrived at 06.45 and home before 7 !! that would be a dream come true
  2. The sad thing is, pardon the pun (that's only a drop in the ocean) ..... they just keep producing more and more
  3. I have been looking at Fougeres ? roughly about 30 miles this side of Rennes ..... and could still get round Rennes before rush hour.
  4. I will keep an eye out Ed ..... always a spare place at my table.
  5. I feel like I may have misled some people ... I never said I wanted to stop at a restaurant ... I just wanted somewhere to stop for a break and something to eat sort of half way along, could be services, Mc d's, or somewhere like that on the way that was easy to get to ..... Although ED rekons I'm loaded now with all the savings I made, I will use that money later on in my holiday
  6. I did sail with IF to Roscoff on the Oscar Wilde from Rosslare once ... it was purely to see what it was like and to compare it to the Cork sailing .... I really liked the Oscar Wilde as many have said who have sailed on her, but it's usually a price thing with us as there are 5 in our party. Next year it's a Dublin departure with the choice of a sailing every other day, we are not limited to the weekly Saturday sailing from Cork, and Dublin is less than a 2 hour drive now from Belfast rather than the 4.5 hours to Cork.
  7. Lol ... 400euro is hardly cash rich but it's better than nothoing I suppose, thanks for all the advise, i'm looking at routes and planning the drive, hopefully it all goes smoothly
  8. It's about 140 miles from Cherbourg so I could easily be there or there abouts in about 3 hours, given the time it takes to dissembark from an 11.30 docking, could be about 15.30 and before rush hour
  9. Are you referring to me as 'cash rich' ED ..... lol .... think again ... definitely not me. .... this talk of the Rennes Peripherique is a bit scary .... hopefully nothing like Paris !! ..... is it better to go beyond Rennes and then stop for eats ?
  10. Arrival Cherbourg around 11.30 am ... looking Carnac around 5.30pm (hopefully) ... arriving on a Tuesday morning in July.
  11. Has anyone driven this route, first time to Cherbourg for us, thinking about stopping somewhere mid way, any suggestions for a food stop ? .... is the best route through (round) Rennes ? ...... just putting it out there .... cheers.
  12. I've got to say I will miss sailing on the Pont Aven in July, as it's been our preferred choice for a lot of years now. When I enquired about the 50% deposit and not the usual 25% they basically said it is what it is and that I should take out insurance to cover it as it was non refundable ! ...... no thanks, 700 euro is a bit steep for any deposit. I have booked Irish Ferries from DUB/CHER for around 400 euro less than BF wanted ... 100 euro deposit and 2.5 hours less driving time as I'm coming from Belfast to Dublin now and not Cork ..... I'm just waiting on the WBY to have an engine fire next year and we'll all be transferred to Cork with BF
  13. FAQ's ......... How much is the deposit on a ferry booking? If you choose to confirm a ferry booking with us we require a 25% deposit whereupon we issue a confirmation advice that sets out the details of your reservation and provides other information. Yet they are asking for 50% when i get my final price ...... not making sense at all.
  14. 500 euro is the guts of a weeks mobile home rental
  15. The increase in fares from Cork is ridiculous ... my new dates for July would see me pay 1600 euro (50%deposit !!) return for a 4 berth, 2 kids sharing ........ Irish ferries from Dublin to Cherbourg on the same dates 1125 euro ( only 100 euro deposit) and that's with a 5 berth cabin .... they actually have 6 berth cabins on WBY. ..... it would mean an extra 3 hours drive time as it's Cherbourg and not Roscoff, but i'll take that any day.
