The executive committee invites members to our summer outing to Birr Castle. The award-winning Gardens of Birr Castle Gardens and Science Centre are both rich in amazing feats of science and engineering as well as rare trees and flowers, wonderful wildlife, and walks along peaceful rivers and the lake.
We will leave central Dublin at 9.15am on Wednesday 13th June 2018 and should arrive in Birr by 10.45am. The coach pick-up point is in front of the Davenport Hotel, Merrion Street Lower.
On arrival we will have tea/coffee. We have then organised an hour long tour inside the castle which starts at 11.30 am., followed by a cold lunch served with tea/coffee in the Courtyard Café. In the afternoon you will be free to tour the gardens and visit the great telescope and science centre. We plan to return to Dublin city centre by approximately 6pm. The total cost of the outing is €50 pp. Please note that this outing is open to members only. The closing date for bookings is 7th June 2018.
