GWC 2017 Week Abroad – Croatia 27th Sept – 4th Oct

Club Trip away to Croatia 27th September to 4th October 2017.


This years trip will be to Croatia on the above dates. The Company we will be dealing with in Croatia, is run by Pat Herbert, a retired Irish Army Officer, who has been highly recommended and has been met by the committee.

We will be travelling by Ryanair to Zadar on the above dates, picked up and brought to our accomodation 90 minutes away. We will be based by the sea about 30 minutes outside Split. The accomodation will be mainly self catering apartments, but there will be a hotel option 10 minutes walk away (B+B option). Cost will be same as apartments, Cost will be €450-€470 p/p sharing, plus flights. Single supplement will be €50 for apartments and €120 in the hotel. Apartments will be a mixture of singles, twins and double rooms. There will be 4 days organised walks with optional walks on the two rest days.

Booking early is essential, if we want to secure the accomodation. A €100 deposit will secure the booking. All bookings will need to be notified to Rosie Collins ( ) and to Pat Holland ( ) by email. Please head up your email “Galway Walking Club” As both Rosie and Pat will be away at different times, this will ensure all bookings dealt with efficiently.


In order to confirm the reservation, I need the following information.

1)     Your Name.

2)     Walk type you prefer (A – Hill walk, B – Ramble, C Short Walk)

3)     Who you would like to share with if not staying in a single room.

Unfortunately all the above information is required for groups travelling to Croatia.


In addition, I need a deposit of €100 per person. You can pay this in cash to any committee member, or alternately post a cheque to me at 104 Lower Salthill Road, Galway. Unfortunately I do not have the facility to transfer electronically, except in exceptional circumstances.


You also need to book your own flight. The group are booking Ryanair from Dublin to Zadar. Outward flight on Wednesday 27th September on FR 7312 (dep Dub at07.20 am)  , and return flight on Wednesday 4th October 2017 on FR 7313 (dep Zadar at 11.40 am)
