I have provisionally booked 10 Apartments –
Harbour View Apartment:
Bedroom 1: Double or Twin room en suite. Bedroom 2: Double or Twin room with a guest bathroom.
Open plan kitchen, dining and living area.
Total Apartment Rate: €380.00 for 2 nights
The apartment rates quoted include electricity and complimentary access to the award-winning Westport Leisure Park (which has a 25m swimming pool, children’s fun pool and Fitness Suite). Our guests also enjoy the benefits of a 24-hour Reception service, free Wi-Fi, unlimited access to Kiddies Corner, free secure car parking and complimentary use of our on-site leisure facilities (sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi).

Westport Sprint Tri is only 4 weeks away so those of you who have booked accommodation through the Googlesheet need to act now as payment is required.
Could 1 person from each apartment please act as the ” Payer” and add their phone number so that Jaqui from Harbour Mill Apartments can take payment. The other 3 staying in the Apartment can then pay you their share directly.
Jaqui is looking to have payment by Friday. If anyone has booked and is not attending please remove your name as otherwise you might get charged.
