We welcome groups of all ages and fitness levels and are happy to build the activity around what you would like to do, and feel able for....Foraging for cockles and mussels is by far our most favoured group activity, but we must manage this in a sustainable fashion, so we can only forage at certain times of the year, we must limit the number of people we take out, and as always, foraging is tide and weather dependent.
We can organise accommodation for you if required at the 4-star Old Deanery Holiday Cottages (www.olddeanerycottages.com) cosy 3-bedroom cottages on the edge of Killala, overlooking wild Killala Bay, or we can put you in touch with several other self-catering / B&B accommodation providers in the area.
Tours start at €35 per person for a 1/2 day tour (minimum 2 people). Discounts apply for groups and multiple activity bookings, and depending on tour. If other expertise is required, such as working with Ray the blacksmith, there will be an additional charge.... but it won't be too much!
