Are they going to send you another box? The luggage tags are in the box, and the guides on our trip did not have any extras. The tour booklet is also in the box and it has the ABD emergency contact number, which is very important if anything goes wrong. If they don't send you another box, make sure you get that number from ABD to take with you. The only other thing is the backpacks.

I made my final payment today. There are 14 people booked, which is the same number as 6 months ago. I hope we don't get cancelled. It worked out pretty well for us last time that happened, but I've made some more complicated travel plans this time.

Boy, you paid that off early! I hope you don't get cancelled, either. I've had trips go with 14, but it was shoulder season. Fingers and toes crossed, there's still time for more people to sign up, too!

I had a really good promotion on my Discover card. I'm just a little worried that somebody who has booked will drop out before the final payment is due on April 2. But you're right - there is still plenty of time. We had 16 on our SWS in 2011 and the person I spoke to at ABD said there is no hard and fast rule but the trips are usually a go with 16, so that seems like the magic number.

I noticed that the price for our date went up by $490 pp yesterday, so I called ABD to see how many are booked. We are now at 30 guests, so I guess I can stop worrying about being cancelled. I've noticed that for this itinerary that the price usually increases in increments of $160, but this was one big jump, so maybe a large family or group of some kind booked. Last month there were only 14 people.

Sounds like it (a large group). Congrats! It's so nice to have that worry off your mind.

Hi All,.... Well I live in Cork ..... 10 miles from Blarney

If you are going to Blarney .... And going to kiss " The Blarney Stone "

remember there is a narrow circular stairs to climb .

If you have time visit Blarney House next to the Castle.

TIP.. The largest & best value Store to buy souvenirs IS IN

Blarney Woolen Mills .. This also has a Cafe & a Bar.

( It is where the Coach drops you off to visit Blarney Castle )


Try & persuade your guide to Visit The Jameson Whiskey Distillery

in Middleton . ( This is 10 miles on the Waterford side FROM Cork )

Here you will be given a chance to BE a Whiskey Taster .

Well worth the time & taste Jameson Whiskey.

If your Tour is going to do The Ring of Kerry then have plenty of

batteries for your Camera. ( Dublin is crowded )

PPS Remember you Will need a 3 pin Plug adapter ( 220-240 V )

Your laptop will be fine ( but needs Plug )

I might meet up with you in Blarney if I knew when you are there .

We will be going to Orlando on Sat.30th August ( Dublin >Orlando Direct with

Aer Lingus.

My goodness! That's quite the group! You should have a great time! Welcome to the DISBoards and to the ABD Forum. I've added you to the Roll Call on the first post of this thread.

You'll be traveling on the same departure as DISer Bobo912 & her son, and DISer Jack'sGirl5 & her daughter!

Hi, I think we are the large group you were referring to. 14 of us. We can't wait, have you done this trip before? Are you traveling with your son?

Thanks for putting us over the cancellation threshold! I booked the trip on June 1 and a couple of months later there were 14 people, but it stayed at 14 for months. So I was happy to see the total go up. This will be our 5th ABD, but we've never been to Ireland before. My son will definitely be with me. His 14th birthday is on July 7.
