With three classes a day in our brand new yoga room, you’ll be feeling pretty Zen going to bed every night! The classes, presented by our expert teachers, will combine elements of Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin and Restorative Yoga. We will also spend time helping you understand how to sequence a class, so you can bring everything you’ve learned home with you.
Attaining peace of mind is a lifelong journey but meditation is a good first step. Begin the morning with a silent meditation in the main hall. We will also explore mindfulness, mantra and loving kindness meditations.
Pick and choose from a variety of workshops to entertain and educate yourself in the afternoons. Introductory classes to massage therapy, skin care and group art classes are examples of what’s in store.
STUDIO WITH A VIEW
Our yoga studio has panoramic views down to the Carrowneesky beach, Clare Island and the iconic mountain Croagh Patrick.
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.
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. It’s usually an add on for trips to the lodge but there’s a session each day included in the trip. The perfect spot to unwind. Read more about it here:
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.
