Adare, Co Limerick
Dear Club Members
2012 sees the 15th anniversary of Porsche Club Ireland and our Annual Dinner will be the event to kick off a year of celebration and activities.
Where else should we decide to celebrate this special milestone than Shannonside and the home of Munster Rugby. We’re delighted to offer you the opportunity to join us in Adare, Co. Limerick on the weekend of Saturday 24th March 2012.
Situated in the south west of Ireland, Adare is regarded as being one of Ireland's prettiest and most picturesque villages, and is a haven for those wishing to escape and unwind taking in its medieval surroundings. Situated on the river Maigue, a tributary of the river Shannon, Adare is steeped in history dating back to 1200ad. The village has been the subject of many rebellions, wars and conquests, leaving behind a legacy of historical monuments. In the early 19th century, the Earl of Desmond, laid the plan for the existing streets and townhouses of Adare as you see them today.
We have decided to make the Dunraven Arms Hotel our base for the weekend and the venue for our annual dinner. Once again we hope that members will take the opportunity to come and stay one or two nights and spend time with your PCI friends.
The Dunraven Arms is renowned as one of the finest 4 star hotels in the country. Originally an Old Coach House this hotel has been welcoming guests for over 200 years and has retained its charming old-world atmosphere while offering all the facilities you would expect.
We have negotiated some very special rates, whether you’re going to stay one or two nights. So if you decide to just come by yourself, bring the family for the weekend or just join us for the dinner on Saturday night, we would be delighted to see you.
The costs are as follows;
€90 per person sharing to include 1 nights Bed and Breakfast & the Gala Dinner (Saturday night), with a €30 single supplement.
€140 per person sharing to include 2 nights Bed and Breakfast & the Gala Dinner (Saturday night), with a €30 single supplement.
For Families - children under four years old will enjoy complimentary bed & breakfast with their meals being charged accordingly. Children between five and twelve years will be on half price of the adult’s package and children from thirteen years and up to be charged as adults, (on DB&B packages).
For those who just want to attend the Annual Dinner, the cost is €40 (Saturday night)
ALL BOOKINGS (for packages or dinner) MUST be made in advance with the hotel by the 10th March to secure your place by calling 061 605 900 and QUOTING; PORSCHE CLUB IRELAND & your membership number…
We plan an interesting and exciting weekend with a drive on the Saturday and the Sunday. It is expected to start the drives at midday each day, which with recent motorway improvements will mean it's easy reach for those who will be joining us on Saturday. There is no official plan for Friday but you can bet the advance troops will be doing a recce of all what Adare has to offer like the Lena’s or Sean Collins’s!
Finally, Porsche Club Ireland will be offering all fully paid up members who book by 10th 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 10th March to be included in the draw.

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. Looking forward to seeing you there!
