Date with the Dogs logo 2

By confirming your booking, you accept the following conditions:

  1. If you or any of your party experience symptoms of Covid in the 48 hours prior to your arrival, please let us know and we’ll reschedule your visit.

  2. Please arrive on time for your ‘Date with the Dogs’ so that the next group can start their date on time.  Detailed directions are included below but if you have any difficulties finding us on the day, please call the kennels (091 335059) and one of the team will be happy to help.

  3. Safety is paramount and we ask that you follow the advice of our staff at all times on the day.

  4. We love all dogs but we ask that visitors don’t bring their own dogs on their ‘Date with the Dogs’.

  5. Children must remain under the supervision of their parents/guardians at all times while at the Shelter.

  6. We strongly recommend that you wear sensible footwear as many areas of the grounds are uneven.

  7. Although our walkways would be difficult for wheelchair users to navigate, the real-life room and the sensory garden are accessible.  We plan to have a wheelchair accessible toilet in 2023.

  8. Connemara can provide multiple seasons in one day so appropriate clothing is also strongly recommended.

  9. Visits to our Shelter do not include a tour of the kennel block as this can be very stressful for many of our dogs.

  10. MADRA cannot accept liability for accidents or injury whilst at our Shelter.
