    The provisional cost per person is £295 (sharing) or £360 (single) – subject to final adjustment for exchange rate etc. A £50 deposit per person will secure your booking. The balance will be due by 25 August. The weekend is restricted to members and limited to 30 participants on a first-come, first-served basis (with priority given to those who have already expressed an interest).

    Historic Laois is a county more often driven through than visited. Our visit aims to fill that gap by showing participants a range of major houses in the county, together with visits to other sites that will provide an overview of the area’s fascinating history through its built heritage.

    The programme includes guided visits to Abbey Leix, Stradbally Hall (pictured), Emo Court, Heywood Gardens and the Rock of Dunamaise, together with a heritage walking tour of Portlaoise.

    Travel to Portlaoise is by your own arrangements but a local coach has been hired to ferry us around the various destinations.

    Accommodation will be in the 4 star Killeshin Hotel www.thekilleshin.com

     

    A few places available - please book by 25 August
