  1. I have a "Pre-Assessment Personal Development Activity" coming up soon in Palace Barracks in Holywood, and I'm trying to sort accommodation.

    Tried calling the barracks itself but I just get a machine telling me to contact the National Recruitment Center. The people at the NRC say they don't have any numbers for B&B's in the area and can't help.

    I'm coming up from the South so looking for a B&B on the day is a no go because it'll be late in the evening by the time I get there and I'll probably end up without a place to stay.

    Does anyone know any B&B's in the area?
  2. Have you tried the thing called google?

    I might be over there later so if I remember, I'll have a look
  3. Had a look but I could only find very expensive places, golf resorts i think, that are over £100 per night.

    Everything else I could find was in Belfast city center.

    I want to find somewhere within walking distance of the barracks, because knowing my luck if I called a random taxi it'll be driven by the ghost of Bobby Sands or something. :wtf:

  4. Holywood wont have too much to offer, just get somewhere in Belfast and ge the Bus out: Ulsterbus Service 1 Outbound - Translink (your stop is the Old Holywood Road I think).

    I live within walking distance of Palace but your not staying with me.

    Anywhere around the centre of belfast would do, and if you cant get to the bus; Value cabs are decent and you wont find yourself in west belfast instead of palace

    Edit: Value cabs No. (028) 90 80 90 80
