Ó Dochartaigh Reunion: July
21st - 30th, 2015
Inishowen and Derry City
A message from the 2015 O’Dochartaigh Reunion
We as a committee organize the events for the
reunion. Each attendee must make their own arrangements for their
travel. This includes not only their travel to Ireland but also their
own accommodations and their own ground transportation such as rental
car. The exception to this is the bus tours that are included in the
reunion events schedule.
There are 4 main airports to choose from in Ireland. We have included
the airport codes to help you.
Dublin (DUB): It is a 3+ hour drive from Dublin airport to
Inishowen. Some of the drive is motorway and the rest are good
roads. The airport is north of the city, so you can collect your car
and head north. We recommend avoiding driving in Dublin as it can be
very confusing. The bus and taxi services are very good in and around
Belfast International (BFS): is east of
the city in Antrim. It is about 90 minute drive to Inishowen. It is
a smaller airport and is easy to collect your rental car. Remember
that it is the UK and the prices will be in Sterling and not Euros.
Belfast Harbour (BHD): is northwest of the
city, near the harbour. It is 2+ hours to get to Inishowen. You do
have to drive the motorway through the city. It is well signposted,
but can be a bit confusing as well.
Shannon (SNN): We suggest that you don’t
choose Shannon airport unless you are adding on touring the south of
Ireland to your reunion trip. It is a 6+ hour drive from Shannon to
Inishowen driving straight through without stopping. The country is
beautiful and can be worth the trip if you have the time in your
