Explorers’ Excursion: West Cork

This year we are pleased to invite members who are interested in an active and outdoor excursion to take part in a three-day, two-night trip to West Cork. We will visit the Baronies of Bantry, Bear and Muskerry West, and the Mizen Head Peninsula. The expedition will also include a visit to Ormond Castle and a walking tour around the archaeological sites in the vicinity of the Kealkil Stone Circle.

This excursion is for independently-minded members as own transport (or carpooling with other members) is required throughout.

As always, excursion programmes are subject to change due to weather and other circumstances. As this excursion will primarily take place outdoors please ensure that you have appropriate waterproof clothing and that you are prepared for walking on rough terrain. The cost of the excursion is €300 for members (€325 for guests) which covers: two nights’ bed and breakfast at The Eccles Hotel, Glengarriff, Co. Cork, one dinner, two lunches, all entrance fees, and other administration costs.

Please note: the charge for excursions is non-refundable.
