Day One - Meet and greet at the Castle

On the first day, we all met up at the Abbeyglen Castle Hotel (Sky Road, Clifden, Connemara, Co. Galway, phone: 095 21201), settled ourselves and got to know each other a little bit that evening in the pub. Supper was tasty up in the restaurant and we had our own tables set up with a flag for each country represented in our safari that week. Included were people from Holland, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Germany and England, a great variety guaranteeing us all a great experience in the coming week of hiking.

The hotel was very comfortable and clean with a welcoming feel to it and the room was very nicely decorated, I had a great night's sleep. Brian and Gerry both were very enthusiastic about us all being there and we felt quite at home. The week promised to be eventful and full of memories.
