Hello Wet & Wilders,
So Wet & Wild has teamed up with a very exciting venture 'Killarney Outdoor Winter Experience' this festive season to bring you an amazing weekend of outdoor activities and social evenings between the 2nd - 4th of December.
Not been to a Wet and Wild event before? Wet and Wild is a sports and outdoor pursuits group for the LGBT community (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered individuals) in Ireland, and pretty much everyone else who wants to join in to have an enjoyable time and meet some really nice people :)
This is a brand new all-inclusive weekend away in Killarney, Co Kerry. The action packed weekend includes finger food on arrival on the Friday, 2 nights B&B, a guided hike up Ireland's highest mountain- Carrauntohil on the Saturday, dinner Saturday night, bikes around the Killarney National Park on the Sunday and a free leisure centre pass to use over the weekend! Wow!
As well as all the above we will take part in some good evening sessions where we can can unwind and have a few drinks. We will have free concessions for some of the bars over the weekend and drink specials are also organised in selected bars such as The Shire (Ireland's very own "lord of the rings" themed Pub). See full itinerary below.
The price of the weekend is €129. We Require a €50 deposit before November 14th to secure your spot for the weekend, the remaining €79 can be paid on arrival. Bank details to follow in another email along with suggested items of clothing for the weekend hike and cycle.
