The DylanFest will take place from August 27th to 30th this year. It has become highly popular. The guys that come here to play tell me that this is the biggest DylanFest in Europe.
That’s in a small town at the top of Ireland which has a population of less than 1,500.
Luckily we have the luxury Redcastle Hotel just 4 miles away which has 96 rooms.
This year the Caiseal Mara Hotel, right in the centre of the town, is open for business.
That’s great news.
However, according to the booking part of their website, the Caiseal Mara is now full for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights of the DylanFest.
I also checked on the Redcastle booking page on their website and I see that they are fully booked for the Saturday night of the DylanFest and only have one type of accommodation for the Thursday and Friday nights of the DylanFest although they have accommodation for the Sunday night.
Of course, there are loads of hotels in Derry / Londonderry, including the plush City Hotel, which is around 17 miles (or 27 kilometres) away with a good taxi service.
More Accommodation Needed
So, as we don’t want to turn anyone away from the DylanFest, we are looking for more people with accommodation.
There’s still the picturesque Moville Holiday Hostel which has hostel, Camping and Camper Van facilities and the hostel facilities, like showers, are available to the campers. It’s only about 200 yards away from the centre of the DylanFest.
There’s also Bed and Breakfast and Self Catering accommodation available (see below).
However, we do need more. If you have any type of accommodation available, post it as comments after this article, with contact details, or send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add it to the appropriate list below.
