This June’s Bofin Jaunt has been designed to flow around the fantastic INISH Arts and Culture festival. To get the most out of our course, as we will be using Inish for inspiration, participants are required to book a season pass to Inish, (€60 early bird, till 30 April, €75 thereafter). See site above to book. Friday through Sunday we will have breakfast, lunch and dinner classes, with more conventional morning classes of 2.5 hours per class duration Monday through Wednesday. A celebratory reading together for an invited audience will end our week on Wednesday night. All in all, you can expect 16 contact hours with me on our trip, and an ideal warm up into your own creative expression via the host of inspirations at Inish and all around you on lovely Bofin.
WHEN DOES OUR EVENT BEGIN?
Our official welcome night is THURSDAY June 2nd at 7.15, when I will greet you on the dock in BOFIN and bring you to your lodgings on the island. Later that night, you will be
COULD I ARRIVE LATE TO THE COURSE OR LEAVE EARLY?
Within reason, I will try to assist you if you need to do either of the above. It isn’t possible to alter standard course fee/ standard package fee in these situations but short stays in either the island hostel or DOLPHIN HOTEL may be possible. COntact me to discuss and for contact details for the above.
THE BOAT TO THE ISLAND, LOGISTICAL DETAILS:
If arriving THURSDAY night, your ferry will leave CLEGGAN in Connemara at 6.45 P.M, which means, for a calm start to your trip, get to Cleggan at 5 p.m., 5.15 at latest! More in this vein when you contact with expressions of interest: )
You can buy your ticket on the dock ( most people do, €20 return). Boat departs without exception AT its departure time. If you miss it, you’ll have to put yourself up in Cleggan and join us the next day! I’m on 0861701418 if that transpires!
If interested in the JUNE JAUNT TO BOFIN, please do make contact soon. I will need to close the booking on this trip on 30 April due to the intense demand for accommodation on the island at that time. Right now, I have ONE individual double room in our house, ONE double in the nearby hostel, a 6-bed dorm in same hostel, ONE bed in a twin room in our core house and ONE hotel room in the nearest hotel ( supplement of €125 applies here). July Jaunt bookings will close mid May, and Rossbeigh Jaunt booking will close end June. It may still be possible to book any of these trips after those dates but at 10% surcharge to encourage you to book soon; ).
Look forward to hearing from some of you soon!
