Help! Urgent need of Accommodation for 'all male' group?

Hi all

Can anyone recommend any 'all male' group friendly hotels please?

Or alternatively B&B's able to cater for 10-12 people in twin rooms?

We have booked our flights but our original hotel has let us down on the booking. We are staying 2 nights from 23 Aug - 25 Aug.

Any help would be hugely appreciated..

Cheers, Adam

Adam, which hotel let you down?

I think you were initially going with The Montenotte. If not, try that place previous groups have really liked it.

Bryno - does Cork have much of a stag party scene, is it noticeable ?

Having sat next to men in drag on a flight to Prague and someone dressed as Mr. Blobby on the plane to Budapest, are we going to find Ryanair Gatwick to Cork the same ??

Mr. Blobby incidentally was told to remove his Mr. Blobby detachable head as it was considered a safety risk on take off !

White, no, you shouldn't meet too many blobbies or draggies on the Cork flight.

We are doing a Friday to Monday long weekend in Cork primarily to see Paul Weller in your big music festival tent in July. We thought we would explore Cork on the Saturday and then friends have told us to visit Kinsale on the Sunday ?? Have been following your forum and making notes. Have never visited Ireland - the only flavour of Ireland we have experienced is seeing the Saw Doctors play many times over the past 15 years !!

Hmmmphhhh!! … a big music festival tent… Indeed !! I’ll have you know we call it ‘The Marquee” round these parts ;-))

Paul Weller?? (The Cure – is that him??)

Great idea to explore Cork on the Saturday and yes to Kinsale on Sunday which is a very nice place to visit especially when the weather is good. Go early to get a parking spot, Sundays in Kinsale are always a bit manic – traffic wise as it’s very popular. Contact me in July and I’ll give you directions to the free parking (nudge nudge, wink wink)

Here are some pics to whet your appetite.

Oh yes, and I did see the Saw Doctors live, but only once, - 1994, (long long time ago) but not in Cork – New York. They had more hair then ! Still going strong though.

Thanks for that. Yes it is called the Marquee, someone on this forum said it nearly blew away last year in the winds so I think thats why I thought of it as a tent ! I am hoping for better weather this July ! Paul Weller was in the Jam.

Thanks for info on Kinsale parking, will contact you nearer the time, and all the info/pics you have sent through. Really looking forward to the trip.
