Yep three of our group went at 2.30 today instead. The rest hoping for either the 14.30 Irish Ferries or Stena tomorrow

The orange warning expires at 09.00 so maybe thing will have calmed down a bit by 14.30. The 20.55 boat gets you to Stafford for around 03.30 am but the weather will be wet and windy all the way from Holyhead.

Bit of a pissy weekend...numbers were waaay down on other years..brits dont like the rain...a lot of sellers didnt even bother with sunday, we didnt go up until around 12,got parking right at the gate, loads of empty spaces where vendors should have been, wanted to get a couple of batteries but guy wasnt there...inside was half empty..... ..and they still had the balls to charge £14 at the gate ...

Sorry to hear it was a non event for you. I had been thinking of heading over for it but work commitments stopped me.

Went on 14.30 Epsilon on Friday and got to Stafford at 21.00. Heavy rain and strong wind all the way from Holyhead. Lovely sunny day at show on Saturday, numbers down a bit and a few stalls missing but still busy.

Forecast was awful for Sunday and many vendors went home on Saturday evening on account of this. Sunday is never as good anyway imo. Online tickets are £12 and saves queuing for tickets at the huts. Still worth the trip and better than Leopardstown.
