West Ireland (Clifden) - Fri 25 to Tue 29 August

Postby bencraig » Sun Jan 08, 2017 10:17 pm

Advance notice re our latest Ireland trip.

Travel is via Knock (Ireland West) airport and hire cars. There's no useful public transport in this area so you'll need to get into group car shares.

There are great coastal and hill walks in the area, plus opportunities for island visits.

Suggested flights:
Friday 25 August: 0755 Stansted to Knock (Ryanair)
Tuesday 29 August: 1955 Knock to Gatwick (Aer Lingus)

For accommodation please book:
Friday, Saturday, Sunday nights accommodation in Clifden
Monday night accommodation in Galway town (so that we get a change of scenery)

Indicative plan:
Friday - moderate hill walk on the way from the airport
Saturday - mountain walk
Sunday - coastal or mountain walk
Monday - visit Aran islands
Tuesday - short coastal walk then drive to airport

To book please email me at: bencraig72@hotmail.co.uk
There is still space available.

Hi all,

I am looking at accommodation - does anyone have a spare room/bed in an apartment or similar?

Cheers, Caroline (Clarke)
