Clare Island Adventures are inviting gay and lesbian singles to make the trip across the bay for their bi-annual Singles Adventure Weekend, taking place September 25 to 27.
Recently listed in the Top 5 Best Days Out in Ireland by the Irish Times, the weekend at Clare Island Adventures will appeal to those attracted to high (and medium) adrenalin-inducing outdoors activities.
This isn’t a matchmaking festival – the idea is to bring like-minded people together and put them through a programme of activities that necessitate interaction and co-operation. After that, it’s up to themselves – to connect with new buddies, BFF’s or possibly even soul mates.
Departing Roonagh Pier on Friday evening, the group will be kept busy with lively interactions over the weekend. The evenings on the island will be choca-bloc with delicious meals, music, banter and other craic in The Sailor’s Bar & Restaurant.
A beach challenge on Saturday morning will start the day with lots of laughs. In the afternoon there’ll be a choice between coasteering (for the water babies), climbing & abseiling (for those with a head for heights) or hiking the stunning island that is famed for its magnificent views and its abundant flora and fauna.
You’ll be back on the mainland again by lunchtime on Sunday, allowing plenty of time to leisurely explore Louisburgh, Leenane or Westport and still be homeward bound by early evening.
Singles of all levels of experience (including none) are welcome for all activities. There are some basic requirements (such as being comfortable swimming in the sea if you opt for coasteering), but the instructors will ensure a fun and safe day out for all, even complete beginners. As long as you have a can-do spirit, you’ll be grand!
All in price of €215 includes return ferry, two nights Bed & Breakfast in the comfortable and high quality Go Explore Hostel, dinner on Friday and Saturday night, lunch on Saturday, plus all activities. There is also an option to stay in a local B&B instead of the hostel.
