Some members of KPS are investigating a weekend trip in June to the Burren area in Co. Clare. The accommodation will be in local hostels so the weekend will depend on availability. The trip will involve overnight stays on the Friday and Saturday of the chosen weekend. I have attached links to the hostels and to places of interest in the area. Accommodation can be single, twin or group rooms. If the trip goes ahead all costs will have to be paid upfront with no refunds.
Everything is still up for discussion so if you’re interested in a weekend away in June please let club member, Stasia, know. You can contact her by email (email@example.com) or at the club next Thursday night. In order to book accommodation for June a final decision of numbers travelling will have to be made this week.
