Hi Nia, do you have any idea how I would get to Caernarfon from Holyhead if I took the boat from Dublin? I looked on line and it looks like around 2 hrs on public transport if I don’t miss a bus bor £60 in a cab to cross Ynys Mon and the Menai strait. Diolch, Gareth

I’ll make enquiries, I’m sure there’s an easier way. Caergybi is only 30 minutes from Porthaethwy, Menai Bridge and I’m sure someone could pick you up from there @gareth-mitchell


#4

I moved this to give it a thread of its own @nia.llywelyn. That way more people will see it, and I can include it more easily in the newsletter :slight_smile:


#5

I’d take the train to Bangor, then the bus to Caernarfon. The bus stop is right outside the station and the trip to Caernarfon must be about 20 minutes. I suppose the problem might be how long you’d have to wait in Caergybi after you get off the boat from Dublin.

Diolch yn fawr Dai.

@gareth-mitchell What about this? I’m happy to pick you up from Bangor…and anyone else who wants a lift :slight_smile:


#9

I’m thinking of coming by train, so I can leave my partner the car (& stream Radio Cymru on headphones the whole way) - so I might appreciate a lift, too :slight_smile:


#10

Sounds outrageously reasonable. Interesting times though. Not sure I can be there so early. What date is that?
Diolch, Gareth


#11

Ooh! I’ll be in Corris all of January. I’d love to stay at Llety Arall.


#12

I’m also hoping to go by train. Perhaps when we know more we could agree to meet and share a taxi if the buses aren’t convenient and especially for the return journey on the Sunday.


#13

@gareth-mitchell I looked for Friday 24 of January. They seem to run quite frequently :slight_smile:


#14
