Im organising a large family reunion weekend in July of next year (up to 100 people), and am booking us into Killaloe self-catering. I'm hoping to have one big organised activity/sight-seeing day with relaxed food and drinks afterwards - probably will be a late night, and also a night with a more formal function - a sit-down meal, with slideshows etc and more of a party atmosphere, where we can personalise the space.
I would love for this to be a really unforgettable and special weekend. We're a large family and normally the only time everyone is together as is the way of life, is for weddings or funerals every few years, and even then theres no guarantee that everyone will be there. They are delighted to have this event happening. We could have some of it local and some further afield maybe, but I would imagine some people like the american and english contingent will stay longer - maybe a week or so, and so they can do more 'touristy' things again if it happens that we dont fit much in over this weekend. Most of us are Irish, but I would still like there to be a holiday feeling to it. I've looked into plenty of the local websites and have some ideas, but would love some local/insiders advice and recommendations as to where to go and what to do, good function rooms with flexibility on late opening etc...
Many thanks in advance :)
