– If you have a conference or team building exercises we are glad to facilitate.

– We work with a lot of local activity providers who are great at catering for groups from hiking through the Burren, surfing in nearby Lahinch, sea kayaking along our wild Atlantic coast, mountain biking the green roads of Doolin, horse riding, day trips to the Aran Islands, Cliffs of Moher walks etc. Or to do something more specific such as seaweed foraging, spiritual walks, geology or historical discoveries.

Whatever your needs are we will do our best to accommodate.

We recently enjoyed a seven night stay at the Doolin Hostel with a group of 50 university faculty, staff and students for a residency in creative writing. Anthony, Deirdre and their staff made this trip a joy. The hostel is perfectly positioned at the foot of the Cliffs of Moher which made for heartbreakingly beautiful hikes each morning.”
