Notice Board - Outings

From time to time DCC will organise official outings and guided walkabouts for members. These will be listed as "Official DCC Outings". In addition to this Dublin Camera Club will list events or locations around the country as suggestions likely to provide good photo opportunities for members. Unless specifically noted these are not official Dublin Camera Club outings.

 

Official DCC Outing
At the Celtic Ross Hotel, in the beautiful region of West Cork on the Wild Atlantic Way. Rosscarbery is a small historic town set in picturesque surroundings overlooking a sandy inlet of the rugged West Cork coastline. The town grew up around a monastery, which was established by St. Fachtna in the latter half of the sixth century. It is surrounded by many well known towns such as Baltimore, Durrus, Skull and Kinsale to name but a few.

We will be staying in the Celtic Ross Hotel from Friday, 27th of October to Sunday, 29th October and returning home on Bank Holiday Monday 30th October.

Further details on booking etc see below.
