Optional excursions (by bus) will be available on the Thursday before and the Monday after the conference. These will be organised by the Galway Tour Company, and you can find out more about the Cliffs of Moher tour, and the Connemara tour on their website. Tours usually depart at 10.00 and return around 17.30.
The tour company are generously offering a discounted rate of 18 euro per person to all STEP delegates (and partners/friends etc). Note, this does not include lunch, which you can either take with you or purchase during the lunch stop.
To book an excursion, please use the tour company's booking page; enter your details (price=€18) and use the description field to state which tour you wish to take, on which day, and that you are a conference delegate at NUI Galway.
A tour company representative will be available at the conference, to discuss options for Monday excursions and take additional bookings (but Thursday excursions will, obviously, need to be booked in advance).
