I plan on doing some day trips to Ireland before the year ends. You can get a return train/ferry ticket from London (and most places in England I believe) to there for less than £60. I was thinking of leaving in the afternoon on a Friday, spending Saturday there and then leaving Saturday night with all the sleeping done on the trains/ferry. Unless someone doesn't mind camping in a field somewhere but I don't really fancy carrying a tent all day. Anyone else interested?
