Dear Club Members

Spring is in the air and it's time for you that hibernate your Porsche to dust off the cobwebs and take her for a drive. The Porsche Club Ireland Annual Dinner and Drives is just the event to take her to. This year we are heading west, to Salthill in Galway to be precise. Our base is the Galway Bay Hotel , a 4 star Hotel which has just undergone a refurbishment and is in excellent condition. Some of you might know this Hotel, it is located along the sea front and would have hosted the Galway International Rally for many years. The Hotel has ample car parking, easy access to the city and yet at the correct side of Galway for a run out to Connemara and is family friendly with leisure facilities. Have a look at their web site.

Neil Lane, has negotiated some very special rates for us, whether you stay one night, two nights, bring family/wife/partner/kids or just come by yourself or just come for the dinner on Saturday Night.

€139 per person sharing to include 2 nights bed and Breakfast & 1 Evening Meal ( Sat Gala Dinner )

€89 per person sharing to include 1 nights Bed and Breakfast & 1 Evening Meal ( Sat Gala Dinner )

Complimentary B&B for the children sharing

Single Supplement @ €20 per night

Childrens menu charged at €13.50 per child or they are more than welcome to order from the Table d'Hote menu and would be charged accordingly.

BOOK direct with the Hotel 091 520 520 and MENTION PORSCHE CLUB IRELAND.

We plan an interesting and exciting weekend in the City of the tribes and the west of Ireland opens up to us the possibility of drives on the Saturday and Sunday on roads that would be on any List of the Ten Best Driving in the World. It is expected to start the drives at mid day each day which with recent motorway improvements mean it's easier to reach Galway. There is no official plan for Friday but you can bet the advance troops will be doing a recce in force of establishments like the Skeff and Nachtains !

Finally, Porsche Club Ireland will be offering all fully paid up members who book by 17th of March the chance to win one of 5 prizes of €100 towards their weekend , which will be drawn from a hat at the Gala Dinner. And if that is not enough, we will be also offering 5 more prizes of €50 towards your weekend. Remember you must book by Thursday 17th March to be included in the draw. To be eligible for these prizes you must stay at least one night.

This is your chance to enjoy your Porsche, meet old and new friends, other owners and their Porsches and to show your support for the club.

Come on everybody !
