Picnic to a small Island - Ireland'­s Eye !

Heya Minions :)

If your bank is not in a good shape (like mine :P) to go to some real Island this summer then how about a budget trip to an Island for just 15 Euros? ;)

This is the plan, first we can all meet in the city centre & take a dart to go to Howth. Then we can get into a boat (that I am gonna book for us) & go to the Island. Then we can spend the whole day there. We can sit, walk, swim, chat, play, take pictures or even sleep :D It will be really cool to have a small picnic & meet other Minions & having a beautiful weekend without spending too much. We can take our own foods & also everyone can bring one food from their country to share it with everyone (not mandatory though) but it will be fun ;)

Small details about the Island :
Ireland's Eye is a small Island of Howth on the northside of Dublin. It is a bird sanctuary, hosting many different species of seabirds, which makes it a place of great interest for nature lovers. The Island also has a long safe sandy beach, which is ideal for picnics, swimming and relaxing in the peace and quiet away from the mainland. A trip to Irelands' Eye is ideal for youth groups, summer vacation, walking clubs or indeed any groups.

Once I know your interest on this event then I can book a boat for us & update more details. If you are interested & sure about coming then please RSVP & leave a comment if you wanna know anything.

Let's have a happy picnic,
ARwin :)

    3 words - Wow WOW woW :) Really such a brilliant day. Nice weather (conditions apply :P), Great gang of Minions, wonderful place & adventure :) Can't thank enough for all you guys who came yesterday & made the day so cool :) I had REALLY such a great fun & hope everyone enjoyed it as well :) The boat trip was cute :) But I really felt bad for the Minions who really wanted to come for this meetup but couldn't make it in the last minute due to some unavoidable work & situations but I wanted to say that we really missed you guys :( If you get a chance please go for this trip :)

    Climbing on the rope, the seagull's wonderful hospitality & a "warm" swimming are the highlights of this trip :P A special thanks to all the new Minions who came yesterday & it was so great to see you guys :) Old Minions are my Gold Minions ;) Hurray to Minions family :) :) :)

    • ARwin

      I'll be at The Spire @ 10.30am & will wait for 10 minutes. So if you are on the way to The Spire & bit late please text me. Approximately around 11am we'll reach Connolly station. I guess it will take 45 mins roughly to reach Howth station. So you can decide your timings based on this & text me anytime to know our location status. See ya' soon :)

      July 5, 2014

  • Neil M.

    Would it be possible to meet at Howth Station? Don't want to have to pay 2 full dart fares. Roughly what time will you be at Howth station?

    July 4, 2014

    • Neil M.

      I can only use my smartphone on wifi so I will send you a text if I can't find you at Howth

    June 26, 2014

    • ARwin

      emm may be then there is a good chance of postponing to the next weekend considering many people can't make it this weekend so they can join us in the next weekend. But mainly Mr. Weather is the decision maker ;)

    Hi Guys, I am sorry that I didnt sign up for this one (I simply didnt see it in my email inbox) especially with the weather the way it is. I havent really taken part in anything this group has done as it seems like a younger group (I'm late 40s) BUT I would LOVE to have gone on this one, which may have started the ball rolling because I have never been on a trip like this. We will NEVER have weather like this again so if you reconsidered ARWIN about postponing, I would LOVE to go.

    June 18, 2014

    • ARwin

      Heya Paula ! Hope you are enjoying the weather :) Btw this group is for younger people not in their age but in their hearts ;) So don't worry about it as people come to the meetup ages from 21 to 45 & it doesn't really matter as the real age is just how we feel in our hearts so in that case I am just an one day old baby in my heart :P Then I guess I am gonna postpone this event once again as I can't see many people signed up for it in the last 3 weeks :( I hope this is not a bad idea considering the weather being so good.

      1 · June 18, 2014

  • Aoife

    Hiya, this sounds like a good plan, I live near Howth so perhaps if I can meet you at the trainstation would that be alright...also im a terrible cook so I might just go solo on the food if that's alright it might be a spar special!;S

    June 15, 2014

    • Aoife

      Hiya Arwin thankyou for the welcome, I can see the numbers dwindling and tbh id be the only chick on board and i just work monday-friday so chance of a postponment later in the week might run contrary to me making other plans (rare we get this warm weather)...but hopefully seeyou when theres a bigger group going,apologies for dropping out but better now than the night before,seeyou again :)

      1 · June 16, 2014

    • ARwin

      No worries Aoife, I totally understand & even if the number is really less I will postpone as it will be more fun when there are lot of (or at least enough) people :) Surprisingly the weather is good & even I am hoping people may join in few days or else we can postpone it to the next weekend, let's see how it goes ;) Will update more meetups soon...

    That sounds good....I will try to keep the rain away and get the Sun out for a Sunday (even if its paid) :p :p :p.....how about swimming to the island :p :p :p

      June 9, 2014

    • ARwin

      as I mentioned it's gonna be like a picnic so we can take the foods, snacks & drinks with us & stay in that Island for the whole day until everyone feels like leaving :)
