Postponed Until Further Notice – Rock climbing exploration meet to Clare Island

11 May @ 10:00 - 13 May @ 17:00

Weather permitting the plan is to travel to Roonagh Quay (past Louisburgh and Croagh Patrick) and take the 10 minute ferry to Clare Island.

There is accommodation at the Go Explore Hostel which has an attached bar and restaurant with live music. We can decide to add a Friday or Monday to our schedules if folk are able to take a day off.

The climbing is thus far on short sea cliffs 5Km from the hostel and pier and it is possible to rent bikes to cover that distance. This weekend is not a bank holiday and May is one of the driest months of the year,
