The week is filled with magic. We start before breakfast with a yoga workshop and continue after an organic breakfast with another workshop. This could be yoga, dance meditation or dance expression, painting or any other interest that appears to be needed by the group.
In good weather we can also use the beautiful garden or the beach for the workshops.
Two afternoons are free for walks, relaxing and enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
We complete the rest of the afternoon program on the spot, taking into account the offer of the moment and the needs of the group.
It can consist of one of the following activities:
* breathtaking walks along the river, throught the woods and gardens to Ballinahinch Castle
* unique walk or cycle over the Sky Road near Clifden
* swimming in the lake or in the sea
• a boat trip to Inishbofin;
• visit to Roundstone, a harbour village from the 18th century with a fantastic view of the 'Twelve Bens'. The village derives its name from the Irish "Cloch Na Ron" meaning "Rock of the Seals". You can still sometimes spot a seal on a rock. Many painters have taken their canvas out to capture this. Artists and photographer love the special light and are drawn to Roundstone.
Bill Whelan, composer of 'Riverdance', lives in Roundstone and Sting had his second home here. Tim Robinson, writer and well-known mapmaker, also lives at the Roundstone harbor;
• visit the workshop and store of Malachy Bodhrán, a famous Bodhran and instrument maker in Roundstone. (A Bodhrán is an Irish drum);
• visit the pottery in Roundstone;
* bath in the sun or enjoy the sea breeze on one of the two white coral beaches:
“Dog’s Bay” and “Gurteen Bay”. If you're very lucky, you can spot a dolphin in one of these bays
* enjoy a meal locally, in Roundstone or Clifden
(from Pub-Grub to Haute Cuisine/Fine Dining)
* cooking together in the lovely new kitchen of the farmhouse
