Ski trip

Welcome to our first Dublin West Ski Trip! We don’t go to Sinai, but we go to Sinaia (Romania).

What’s the promise?

A 6 days (5 nights) trip to a beautiful country, high mountains, plenty of snow, friendly and also challenging slopes, cable cars. Around the nice hotel (with good food, swimming pool, sauna), there is a castle of former kings of Romania featured in movies. And, if you’re (not) nice, we’ll take you also to Dracula’s castle! End of report: a lot of fun and friendship, a unique experience.

Feel free to comment on this page (see section below) and we’ll answer for all. You want to come, right?


We aim to a certain budget per person (plane ticket – 170, bus 35, hotel & breakfast 150). Other variable costs (up to 100-150) include your own expenses for food (lunch and/or dinner), access to slopes (cable car journeys) and renting the gear (ski, snowboard, boots). One can come and only enjoy the view and use the swimming pool and sauna! If you don’t know how to do skiing or snowboarding, there are teachers and short lessons available.

The plane ticket must be purchased asap. The rest will be paid… in February!

More info about the exact program of the days, lodging, local transport and other details will be added as we make up the group.


For now, please check your passport (expiry date, Romania is part of EU), and book your flights. Prices vary, sometimes go up, sometimes go down. While some got it for around 100 euro, others paid 170 euro.

Your direct flight details (Ryanair) should be as follows:
Dublin to Bucharest (FR 7346): Sunday, 16 Feb
Bucharest to Dublin (FR 7347): Friday, 21 Feb

The alternative of a good price is a trip via London! (leaving Saturday night, arriving in Bucharest on Sunday.) Please check with elder Ropo as they have booked it that way. Yes, we can go in two groups!

Just a video to make you quickly decide 🙂
