Our 2015 weekends were fully booked, and proved a great success.

Here’s some of the feedback we had from participants on our recent Autumn weekend.

“Thanks for a great weekend, really enjoyed it.  It was a lovely group of people and you are brilliant at what you do.”

Sarah Tutty

“Thanks for a great weekend; I hope to be back in the spring.”

Kevin Johnston

“Thank you for organizing a wonderful weekend. I am already looking forward to doing it again. I would really recommend the weekend for anyone who wants to see more wildlife. You have a great approach – laid back but yet very informative. It was in a great location and the package with the hotel was excellent.”

The cost for the weekend, which runs from Friday evening through to Sunday afternoon, is just €269 per person, including all guiding, talks and field excursions, two nights bed and breakfast accommodation at the Celtic Ross Hotel, a packed lunch for Saturday’s field excursions, a three course meal in the hotel restaurant on the Saturday night and a whale watching / marine wildlife boat trip with Cork Whale Watch (weather permitting).

Places on these weekends are limited, so if you’d like to join us I’d recommend getting your booking in early to avoid disappointment.
