Details to come. Is anyone interested in spending the Memorial weekend in Chattanooga? I've booked 3 rooms at Baymont Wyndham. The rooms each have two double beds. Cost for the room two nights is $85 pp. We will split gas and meals are on your own. The hotel is 9 miles from city center. We could leave Asheville around 10 am. It's a 3 1/2 hour drive which would Saturday and Sunday activities could includ: the walking bridge, the Hunter Art Museum, downtown, the art district, Northshore, the Aquarium, Lookout Mountain, Raccoon Mountain, hiking at Signal Mountain, Ocoee Park or Chilovee. If it's not too hot. I'd like to see Ruby Falls. Please add a comment below if you are interested I'll open up reservations after I see if there is enough interest.
This will be a cultural immersion trip with a two town destination stay with Dublin being at the end so we can spend Halloween there. Day 1 will be spent flying to Dublin where we will meet to pick up our car and start driving west until we arrive at Killareny. This entails picking up and driving right after flying most likely overnight. The drive is approximately 5 hours. We will stay in Killareny between Oct 25-Oct 31. On some of our days we will drive west to the coast and just get lost. Two intentional drives will be to the Beara Peninsula and the other to head towards Cork and Kinsale. No GPS or maps other than to get back to our hotel. We will immerse ourselves in the local culture for a week. At the end of our stay in Killarney we will drive to Dublin and stay for two nights. We will visit my favorite pub in Dublin for Halloween night. Nov 1 will be our last day in Dublin, at the time of this writing, the thought is take the bus or train out to the coast.
