Burren Ecotourism Vision Day | Burren EcoTourism | Clare | Ireland

I am chuffed to say I was invited to  attend the Burren Ecotourism Vision Day recently, hosted by the Burren Eco-tourism Network, B.E.N, to hear about their work, with the view of becoming a member over the coming months. Met loads of potential new members of B.E.N, and like myself we had a lot of things to learn and hear about.

It was great to hear about all the exciting ventures and small business’s people are forging away at, on our door step. Everything from chocolate makers, herbalists, angling guides and cavers. There was a great business card swopping session over the wholesome vegetarian lunch, provided at the venue, which was the Boghill Centre, Residential Holistic Eco venue, near Kilfenora.

So many ideas, new faces and opportunities presented themselves, of course I was all ears to the  food ideas, the day was rich with knowledge, and I’m really looking forward to the training days over the Winter.

This is why I was there…………
