Modern airport on top of the hill and with the tides and the currents going right for you, you’ll park in Garryvoe in 25 min, in the large carpark which is free of charge.

The Garryvoe Hotel has been home to the Talking Heads Toastmaster club for 22 years and has developed into a magnificent, family run, 4 star hotel & Health club, and we want you all to come, to discover this Hidden Treasure.
You can anchor yourself inside with all the other toastmasters who have taken over the hotel—-Nobody else is allowed on board for the weekend.

Our sea shanties will begin late and end even later to welcome the dawn chorus perhaps. Song words are being prepared so there will be no excuses… we have ways of making you sing!!!!
