16th October - 19th October 2009

Event now over........

EVENT IS NOW FULL  We now have a few more beds available - they may fill quickly.

Due to an unusually high number of couples booking we have lost a couple of expected beds as we've utilised 4 bed rooms for couples. There may possibly be more beds if we can arrange it - if you'd still like to go then complete a booking form but DO NOT send payment and I'll add you to the reserve list.

Update: 1st September We now have a few more beds available - reservations are 'first come, first served' so get your bookings in now........

2009 sees the return of the ever popular Killala Cottages weekend at The Old Deanery in Co. Mayo, Ireland. Based in fully equipped cottages on the hill overlooking Broad Bay and consists of three nights starting on the Friday and finishing on the Monday morning and all for only 35 per head.

This Rally makes a great break in relaxing surroundings with some great company amidst the rural splendour and relaxed atmosphere that is Southern Ireland. There is great scenery, great riding roads and a few great Irish pubs in the village.....

View from the cottages

We tend to pre-arrange very little for this event and most folk seem happy to just 'go with the flow' Most will take ride-outs at some point, both to see the scenery, ride the roads, visit some attraction or just find a local bar for soup and a roll.....

Saturday evening will we have a meal arranged for those that wish it at The Village Inn' where we'll have our own room. The meal is arranged for 7.30pm. Costs of the meal are not included inn the rally price and the main meal will be a choice of Beef, Chicken, Fish or a vegetarian option at around 10 Euros and starters and desserts at around 4 Euros. The meal is optional but usually makes a good get together - I'll need confirmed numbers by the Friday at the latest.

The cottages are fully equipped and all you need to bring are your own towels. Each house tends to do it's own catering with folk getting together to cook and/or buy provisions so you won't particularly need to cater for yourself just be willing to help out with whatever needs doing..... All totally relaxed.

Travel - most folk tend to cross the Irish Sea from Holyhead to Dunlaoghaire and the last time we went, the majority booked into the Travel Lodge at Holyhead the night before for the early sailing of the HSS at 9.10am which made for an easy start and a leisurely day to cover the 160 miles to Killala along with various lunch and tea stops. Ferry times have changed slightly since then and the early HSS now runs at 10.25am which means not quite such an early start but also not quite such a leisurely ride. Current ferry prices on the HSS for a bike and rider are 55 each way with an additional 20 each way for a foot passenger - we are likely to have a discount code in due course that you will be able to use for a Stena ferry booking and I think it will save you 15%.

Cost is 35 per person. We have four cottages available, each with one double room, one twin room and one room with either three or four beds.  - single rooms are not available so if you are coming alone you will be roomed with another person. This means that there are only 28 places available on a 'First come, First Served' basis so early booking and payment is highly recommended. IF we become fully booked over the next couple of months it is possible that we may be able to book another one or two cottages but after that there is no guarantee..... So Book Now........ if you'd like to attend this rally you need to get those bookings in now......

If you wish to pay by PayPal, Credit or Debit card please use the payment buttons below and select the number of places you require. You must then return here and submit the Booking Form with all your correct information.

If you wish to pay by cheque then just complete and submit the Booking Form and you will be given the appropriate payment instructions.
