If you’re single and into outdoor adventure, we have a weekend of fun in mind for you.

For many being single in the age of coronavirus has made people feel more single than ever. 

After so much time confined indoors, it’s time to start dreaming again of the great outdoors and mixing with people of similar tastes and interests.  In the hope that lockdown is ended soon and restrictions are eased, we have chosen to organise, what will no doubt be a popular weekend for singletons who are up for an adventure. 

The deep remote west of Ireland is where this wonderful adventure tour will take you.  Hike or bike through the valleys of Connemara, kayak along Killary Fjord and on a ferry boat to Inis Mor where you can opt to bike ride along the old country roads, all in a friendly group atmosphere. 

This isn’t a match-making weekend. What we do is bring like-minded people together and provide a fun environment to make new friends – single friends, with whom more than friendship may (or may not) develop. There’s something about adventure in the great outdoors – that bonds people together quickly.

And because the focus isn’t on potential romance, there is no awkwardness either. Just strangers with a love of the outdoors getting to know others.

Our tours include everything you need for a stress – free trip: accommodation, transport, Irish tour guide, breakfast, and a few key cultural & activities inclusions that are simply not to be missed.

 

Price:

  • Hostel B&B –  €329pps for dorm room occupancy (sharing with other singletons of same-gender)
  • Hotel B&B – €429pps for twin room occupancy (must be travelling with a single friend)
  • Hotel B&B – €529pp for a single room occupancy
