Saturday, 2 May 2009 - Monday, 4 May 2009
Saturday 2nd to Monday 4th May.
Plan of action is for anybody wishing to make a night, or weekend of it the Falls Hotel, Ennistymon, Co. Clare is to be the base.
The Hotel has plenty of bedrooms and a leisure complex with indoor heated pool etc.
It is quite child friendly for anybody bringing the younger members along.
Anybody wishing to do this can contact the hotel directly on 065- 7071004 or www.fallshotel.ie
Travel down at leisure on the Saturday as there is no specific action planned for Saturday, save to say depending on how many people choose to stay, I have a plan for a walking tour of the town which will include visiting a few of the local ale houses and informal diner back at the hotel.
Sunday being the main event, plan is to assemble all vehicles in the hotel car park for an 11.30AM departure.
We will be driving to the Cliffs of Moher, Doolin, Ballyvaughan, Ailwee caves, Poolnabroin Dolmen and return via the "spa well" in Lisdoonvarna for some health giving sulphur water. The Burren through which we will be travelling is a very special "Karst" landscape which has beautiful scenery and many species of plants not found elsewhere in the world.
We will stop along the way for tea & sandwiches.
The route also takes in "Corkscrew Hill" which has a series of hair pin bends which can be exhilerating to drive up in a spirited manner.
The plan is to be back at the Hotel for 5.30.
For anybody staying on Sunday night, we will all meet up for dinner & drinks from 7.30.
I will have maps of the route and approximate timetable available for all on the day.
