Limerick Newsletter #7

Dear Colleagues,

Looking forward to welcoming you all to our conference in the summer of 2023!

Optional ‘Cliffs of Moher’ Tour on Saturday 5th August:

On Saturday, 5th August 2023, we will depart from Cappavilla Village Reception, University of Limerick at 09.00am for a tour to the West Coast. Drive through County Clare and continue to the Cliffs of Moher.  One of Ireland’s favourite visitor experiences, the Cliffs of Moher tower over the rugged west Clare coast.  Walk the safe, paved pathways and view the famous Cliffs on Europe’s western frontier and enjoy the spectacular vistas over the Atlantic Ocean and the Aran Islands. Their natural beauty has inspired artists, musicians, and poets for generations, as well as absorbing scientists and geologists, drawn by the unique landscape in which they sit. The Cliffs of Moher, the most famous cliffs in Ireland, will leave you awestruck, creating memories that will stay with you forever. The Cliffs of Moher host major colonies of nesting sea birds and are one of the country’s most important bird-breeding sites. The area has been designated a Special Protection Area (SPA) for Birds.  Part of the beauty of the Cliffs is that they can be cloaked in fog one minute and basking in the sun’s rays the next. The weather is highly unpredictable – it’s best to come prepared for all types of weather – with a good rain jacket and a pair of walking shoes.

IACCP Full Day Tour to the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren:€45.00 per person

The tour continues onwards from the Cliffs of Moher through the Burren region.  The vast, moon-like Burren in County Clare is one of Ireland’s most compelling landscapes. Here, cool grey rock etched with crevices and cracks tumbles down to the wild blue Atlantic Ocean. The result is one of nature’s most extraordinary phenomena: a huge rocky pavement dotted with rock formations, caves and fossils, as well as an incredible array of flowers, from native species to Arctic, Alpine and Mediterranean plants.

You will return to Cappavilla Village by approx. 18.00hrs.
