      I'm pretty much as south as you can get... South of England I mean. :D

      Plane is dirt cheap though.

      Yeah there should be dozens of different flight options everyday between UK and IRE. So make up your mind and lets join up and go there :)

      Have thought alot about this but it's not feasable for me this year. It's literally an hour up the road from me but I will have to pass this year!

      Very easily actually - my wife just gave birth to my second daughter and I wouldn't feel right leaving her with a new born and a toddler :)

      Also, I cannot really afford the events and I have about 15 hours live poker experience in my lifetime! Oh yeah and I'm a big fish :D

      Hope you ship something and have a great time!

      i really really want to go to this but money is tight.

      I even thought about driving and then just sleeping in the car, highroller style I know. It is gona hurt so much to miss this as it looks soooo good.

      I will make sure I have a big bankroll and a lot of free time to make this event next year though.

      This type festival has not been taking place any other year.

      What makes u guys think that there will be same next year? Ofc. If they do really well there, but for that we should get big attentance or am I missing out on some information here?

      Well Galway is super busy at that time of year as well because of the Galway Horse Racing Festival. So there should be plenty of gamblers around the area (thus increasing attendances imo)

      On top of that, Galway is a very strong tourist area, very accessible from all parts of this country (which cannot be said for alot of other cities/places) so I really would be surprised that it did not work out.

      I am sure that it will work out, but will it be that good.. until they have not announced that it will be yearly event I would not count on it.

      Oh I don't miss out on my daily +EV fix ;)

      I also have a friend getting married in the middle of the festival so it's a complete washout for me this year :(
