Clare Island seeks more men…for singles adventures

Meet the Woman of Your Dreams….on Clare Island


Failte Ireland-Clare Island8495Calling all the outdoorsy single men – get your helmets, wetsuits and harnesses on.  From June 20th – 22nd a fun and adrenalin-filled weekend of outdoor adventure will be taking place on Clare Island, specifically designed with single folks in mind.  And so far it’s looking like there’s a wee bit of an imbalance: more women than men!

Jam-packed with adventure activities, the weekend will deliberately steer away from any cheesy match-making.  Instead, the focus will be on providing an environment where single people who enjoy being active in the outdoors can hang out, do some exploring and some adventuring with other like-minded singles.  This is a Singles Adventures Weekend, NOT a match-making festival.

Recently named by The Irish Times as one of the Top 5 Best Places to Go Wild in Ireland, Clare Island is the perfect destination for a weekend getaway entailing lots of outdoor fun.  Beginning and ending with a short ferry trip (where you might be accompanied by dolphins or basking sharks), the schedule includes a beach challenge, a choice of coasteering, rock-climbing & abseiling, or hiking, delicious meals, optional set-dancing lessons, much banter and live musical entertainment.  All against a backdrop of magnificent views – whether outdoors or in.

All gear will be provided plus full instruction, so previous experience isn’t a requirement.  Just an up-beat can-do spirit will see you through.  There’ll be some activities involving all the group, others broken down according to individual interests.  But there’ll be plenty of mingling in the bar at mealtimes and in the evening – nothing corny, just a bunch of new buddies swapping tales of their adventures.

Departing Roonagh Pier on Friday evening, you’ll be back on the mainland again by lunchtime on Sunday, allowing visitors from beyond Mayo plenty of time to leisurely explore Louisburgh, Leenane or Westport and still be homeward bound by early evening.

All in price of €215 includes return ferry, two nights Bed & Breakfast in the very comfortable 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. Click here for full details.
