Open Invitations - free overnight accomodation

Post by warpc0il » Wed Nov 29, 2017 11:41 am

We have two double spare rooms and are happy to provide free accommodation to any who are passing through the area or would like to use us as a base to explore the local area for a few days.

Any/all of Northern Ireland is within a days drive of here, including the Antrim Coast Road, while Kirkistown Circuit is only 20 miles down the coast.
https://discovernorthernireland.com

We have a large car park and our record so far is 18 cars (nearly all RX7s and 8s) and 22 people overnight - though many of those were camping on the front lawn, prior to the Mazda 50th Anniversary event at Kirkistown last July.

There will be no charge for accommodation but guests will be expected to pay their way regarding food & drink - as we only have our pensions to live on.

This offer is made to fully paid members of the RX8 Owners Club, residing in in UK, ROI or further afield, including their friends/family travelling together.

For any that can't cope with the ferry across the Irish Sea (Brian?) we could arrange to pick up from Belfast City Airport.

In all cases, at least a week's notice would be appreciated.

You can find us here

Feel free to use this thread to discuss our offer and/or if you would like to make a similar offer of free accommodation to members.

That's a very generous offer there Dave, reckon Soph and I might well take you up on that one of the days. Ireland is a country that I've wanted to visit for a while, so a road trip might be in order for next year :thumleft:

I can't envisage a set of circumstances where I'd ever need to take you up on that offer, however it's very generous and highly commendable of you.

It might be worth stating your poison of choice for anyone taking up your offer & wanting to thank you for your hospitality. ;) :thumleft:

Did Norway this year on the bike. 2 weeks before leaving the bike started losing 2 gear. 5000 miles in 3 weeks and 2nd gear was no more. An excuse to strip and rebuild.
Should be fine in the car! :thumright:

We visited Kerry and the Cliffs of Moha a couple of years ago and yes it really is a stunning place. I visited Donegal several times as kid living in Belfast as my best mate in those days had an Auntie who lived over there in a cottage with no running water and a beaten earth floor. Vivid memories of fishing off a tanker jetty and hauling on Pollack like there was no tomorrow!

May be we need a grand tour of Ireland organising.

There was one in the works for autumn this year, but it sort of fizzled out. I'd definitely be keen on that though.

Thanks Dave, you're a star, I would love to come the night before, but as I live close by, I'll let others take the offer and see you at the track.
