Joan you can host a paint out and see if the group are interested and take it from there. Usually need a few people to share hosting. You can contact group by going to Groups on site and from there you can send a group message. If I'm going to connemara anytime.e I'll let you know. You meet a lot of people at the wexford festival possibly from your own area.hope that helps

Hi West of Ireland group! Am brining a 12-15 person artist group to Ireland from the US in Summer of 2019 but starting to plan now. Plan to stay in Oranmore, Galway and travel to the south to see sights and possibly paint. Anyone know of some spots between there and the Cliffs to try? Kinvarra town is an obvious place, any other suggestions? Anyplace around Russell Gallery to paint that you can suggest? All comments welcome. Thanks folks!

Just wondering if the Westport weekend paint- out is happening again this year? The post above could do with a little updating...
