Friday, 5 April 2013 - Saturday, 6 April 2013


The closing date for booking the Annual Dinner is Friday 8th March, to avoid disappointment call them today.

Dear Club Members,

Spring is in the air and we've been busy organising the first of our 2013 Gatherings. This event should be a great opportunity for you to dust the cobwebs off your Porsche and take her for a drive.

This year we are heading west and to Salthill, Galway. Our base for the weekend will be the Galway Bay Hotel which many of you will know hosted our 2011 Annual Dinner. The Hotel has ample car parking, easy access to the City and yet on 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

We have negotiated some good rates, whether you want to stay one or two nights, bring family/wife/partner/kids or just come by yourself.

Members are also welcome to join us for dinner on Saturday night or just the drives.

The hotel cost for PCI members are as follows;

€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 up to two children sharing.

Single Supplement are charged at €20 per night.

Children’s menu charged at €13.50 per child or they are more than welcome to order from the Table d’hôte menu and would be charged accordingly.

The cost of the gala dinner for members who are not staying is €30 per person, (you must book this no later than Friday 31st March).

All bookings (including dinner) should be made with Niamh at the Hotel on 091 520 520 and you must mention PORSCHE CLUB IRELAND, to get the rate and be included in the numbers for Saturday nights dinner.

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 Roads in the World.

We are planning to start the drives at midday each day. So there's no excuse as with the recent motorway improvements Galway is within easy reach of most parts of the country. Just to mention there is no official plan for the Friday night but if you arrive early, there will be lots of others to join for dinner in town or a pint later in the hotel bar.

Early booking incentive, those who book before Friday the 8th March, will have their name entered into a draw, which will take place after dinner, with lots of super prizes to be won. The Top Prize is a weekend voucher including two nights accommodation, dinner, bed and breakfast for two people sharing in the Galway Bay Hotel. This can be used to pay your hotel bill on checkout. We will also have four hotel vouchers of €100 each.

We will also hold a raffle on the night with all proceeds going to charity.

This is a great chance to enjoy your Porsche, meet some old and make some new friends. If you have not yet been to one of our annual dinners they really are worth the effort as they're so much more than just a dinner, the craic is always mighty!

We hope you can make it!
