National Drawing Day takes place this weekend and to mark this we are holding a special trip for those interested in seeing and sketching the beautiful river Barrow. This boat trip takes place on Friday 17th May, leaving at 6pm from the Jetty in the Town Park, Graiguecullen, Carlow. We plan to be back for at the Jetty between 8pm & 8.30pm. Suitable for all levels of ability, the evening will be facilitated by experienced Art Tutor, Ms Melanie Dunne. Feel free to bring your own materials, however we will have some on the evening if you need. The weather forecast is for Friday to be bright and sunny. The cost of this trip is €28 per person, however, it is not very suitable for small kids (its over 2 hrs long and they'll just get bored) If you would like to join us, please follow the "Buy Now" button below and if you any questions, just call Cliff on 087-2061999
Sunday 5th of May is International Dawn Chorus Day. Taking part, we will be running a special Dawn Chorus Cruise on the river Barrow leaving Carlow town at 6am sharp. Heading downstream, we will watch the sunrise, and listen to the beautiful sound of the river as it awakens to the songs of the many waterside birds. We also hope to record a small snippet for RTE Radio. If you would like to join us, just follow the link below to book your place. Please note that we will be leaving from outside the Rowing Club and not our usual spot in the town park. This is due to the early morning start. We plan to be back in the town centre for approximately 8am. The cost of this trip is €28 per person and it is not very suitable for small kids (its 2 hrs. long and they'll just get bored). Please remember also to wrap up warm. While the forecast is for a good morning, the river is still very cold early in the day; so a hat, gloves and snug jacket is advised. If you've any questions, please call Cliff on 087-2061999.
