Guys we are going away for the weekend next weekend but I can't think of where to go. Basically I'll be working in Newry on Sat so it will need to be within 2 hours driving distance of there. Obviously I don't want to go north. Any recomendations? What we want are nice restaurants and good nightlife, would like to try somewhere other than dublin. Thanks

Carlingford in Louth is a beautiful area. Not sure about accommodation but Carlingford Lough is a romantic place!

[quote="MsCabbage":3dzmmeox]Its the weekend of the 12th - I'm not that brave!!![/quote:3dzmmeox] lol - Belfast have festivals now celebrating the 12th! Plus the actual 12th parades aren't being held until the 13th etc ... But I can see where you are coming from. Sligo is really nice - I've stayed there once .... can't remember the name of the hotel, but it used be a mental home (i think!)
