What is it?
The plan is to create the perfect New Year’s escape for those who want to get out of the hectic NYE city scenes and into the wild wesht… but still want to make sure 2023 comes in with bang(er)!
A quick outline
The plan is to arrive down on Friday afternoon and leave Sunday afternoon. We’ll have 2 epic nights in the lodge and 2 days of craic and adventure. Every room is ensuite, all our delicious food will be included as will all daytime and evening activities – the only thing you’ll need to put your hand in your pocket for is a few pints in P Dans, our on site pub.
We also have a couple of big nights planned on Friday and Saturday. Friday will be a bit of a trad music night around the bonfire while Saturday will be a full tank dance party in the lodge with a band and a DJ.
Here’s the breakdown of what you’re getting:
- 2 nights in one of our ensuite rooms
- 1 x 1.5 hour surf lessons (or just a chilly dip. If you’d prefer!)
- 1 x 2 hour hike with spectacular views
- 2 x morning yoga classes
- 2 x breakfasts
- 2 x lunches
- 2 x dinners (one of which is wood fired pizza made in the lodge oven)
- Homemade snacks, tea and coffee throughout the day
- 2 x 1 hour spa sessions in the Big Dipper spa
- Activities every evening: Bonfires, live tunes, and a few pints in our on site pub P Dans.

New Years Party
We’ll be kicking off after dinner on Saturday night with a few complimentary festive beverages. After that we’ll go to the courtyard for a bit of live music (lineup to be announced soon), then it’s into our on site pub, P Dan’s, for a good old fashioned traditional countdown. We’ll finish off the night back at the lodge with a few tunes and a dance into the wee hours.
The lodge is situated next to the magnificent Killadoon Hill which we often tackle on one of the days. It offers panoramic views of the surrounding area and we often end the expedition with a sea swim down on Killadoon Beach.
Whatever the weather we’ll be running our yoga classes every day before breakfast in our brand new yoga room with its spectacular view.
The Big Dipper
Did somebody say ‘Ireland’s Most Scenic Spa?’. Our sister company,The Big Dipper, is a stunning sauna and hot tub set up directly across the road from the lodge.
We’ll have it fired up on Saturday and Sunday to make sure you’ll can thaw out after the surf session and steam away your sorrows the day after.
In the Lodge, we pride ourselves on serving up delicious and healthy meals to nourish and fuel your body and being active in the outdoors. We serve up mainly vegetarian dishes but we promise you won’t be missing meat this weekend. From wood fired sourdough pizza to Cloudpicker filter coffee, we’ll satisfy even the most picky foody.
The lodge is a beautiful space to escape the stress of the week. Chill during the day and maybe read a book on our roof deck and catch some rays. Grab a fresh pint of Guinness in our onsite pub P.Dans. In the evening, while the sunset behind Clare Island, the bonfire will be going and there’s always a few tunes going about.
