Spring Breaks and Escapes in the Burren, Co. Clare
When does Spring begin in 2016? The answer varies. According to the Meteorological Season it starts on the 1st March but according to the Astronomical Season and The Old Farmer’s Almanac it is from the 20th March. Without getting bogged down on which is correct (both really) it does mean that by March lots of plants will have come and gone, such as the snowdrops. Hopefully the green shoots of the daffodils will be well on their way. The March hares will be jumping for joy and most of us mere humans may have worked off the excesses of Christmas and the New Year. Spring is a good time to have a little break and escape to the country and where better than in the heart of the beautiful Burren in West Clare. Simon and Frederike Haden of Gregans Castle Hotel have excellent rates for this time of the year, including an Early Booker Special. One of Ireland’s best Chefs, David Hurley, oversees cutting edge cuisine from local artisan products in the Dining Room in Gregans Castle Hotel. Visit Gregans Castle Hotel website for more details.
