An Góín

Edinburgh Trip

This year marks the Góilín's 35th anniversary. To celebrate, we are arranging a trip to Edinburgh on the October bank holiday weekend (25th - 27th October).

The plan is to arrive in Edinburgh earlyish on Saturday, start with a session at The Captain's Bar (4 S College St, Edinburgh, Midlothian EH8 9AA, UK) where the doors will open at 1 pm. There will be a break for food at some stage. Afterwards we will go to a World's Room singaround which will take place at Ryries Bar (Haymarket Station, Edinburgh). Doors open at 8 p.m.

Sunday will begin at 10.30 a.m. at the Scottish Parliament with a two-hour walking and singing tour of Edinburgh. Unfortunately it's not possible to get inside the Scottish Parliament on a Sunday. After the singing and walking tour we will break for lunch (around 12.30) and round off our trip with a joint Góilín / World's Room session in Ryries. The room is booked until 7 p.m.

Monday is free for shopping followed by flight home.

Book your own flight and bed - Ryanair fly to Edinburgh and there is plenty of accomodation in Edinburgh.

Needless to say, our Howth Singing Circle, Bray, Malahide, Song Central and The Night Before Larry Got Stretched brethren are also welcome along on the skite - book your place early!!
