Single Parent Families Outdoors at Easter takes place from
Saturday 23rd – Tuesday 26th of March 2013
Event Location :
Cong, Co. Mayo [3 hrs from Dublin; 1h30 from Sligo; 40 mins from Galway]
Event Details :
A short holiday for the single parent to come and enjoy with your children. Get to spend some time with other single parents, in a relaxed, rural environment. Our group will gather Saturday afternoon the 23rd of March – the day after schools close for Easter holidays. On Sunday and Monday, we will walk off-road on easy, flat ground in lovely woodlands. We will visit a ruined castle, lakeshore, sink holes and more. Children will especially enjoy the treasure hunt on Sunday and the orienteering on Tuesday. They will climb a tower and learn about tree species we encounter as we go.
Cong is a beautiful place in County Mayo, traversed by numerous river channels, with islands and forest tracks that mean we can stay off the roads while walking.
At night, parents can discover the local pubs, relax and chat, while the children will enjoy movies, boardgames and popcorn, under supervision.
Choose between B&B or hostel private room accommodation. They are literally straight across the quiet cul-de-sac from eachother. All meals will be held together in the B&B, with packed lunches on each day we’re in the great outdoors.
We will endeavour to accommodate each family’s preferred sleeping arrangements. The B&B has rooms with one double plus one single bed, others with twin beds, etc. The hostel has en-suite rooms with four beds.
