COUNTY MEATH, IRELAND
Sole Yoga Holidays is thrilled to present our first luxury yoga & wellness holiday, Sept 22-28, 2019 at a classic renovated home in the green hills of County Meath, Ireland. Our magnificent location was originally built in 1750 and has since been opened as a luxury spa hotel nestled on sweeping emerald lawns and within acres of parkland beyond the main house. We are in love with the quirky details seen in the decor as well as the incredible, mouth-watering food choices. We will enjoy daily yoga in a special room lit by candles and our days will be filled with specially crafted tours of Dublin and the natural wonder of Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland.
ACCOMMODATIONS + FOOD
The gorgeous rooms are decorated in quintessential style with a hint of modern flair. Some have high ceilings, some feature sweeping views and others include special tubs. All of the rooms are quiet and equipped with the best Molton Brown products, wifi, flatscreen TV’s, tea service, slippers & robes.
The hotel also features a gorgeous garden with a large outdoor chess set, library, sitting room with fireplace, game room, steam room and outdoor hot tub. The spa features organic treatments with the specialty of a seaweed bath. We can’t wait to indulge in this!
There are several food options right at our location. Each morning we will enjoy a fresh and hearty traditional Irish breakfast of eggs, cheese, cereals, fruit, tea and coffee. During the day, there are options for a casual menu of sandwiches, soups and salads. There is also an award-winning restaurant set in a gorgeous vaulted room featuring modern Irish fare from fresh, seasonal ingredients. And just in case you are exhausted from the day and want to curl up in your fluffy bed, room service is an option!
Meals included on our retreat:
Daily Irish breakfast (post yoga)
Two glorious dinners (Welcome & Farewell)
Classic, High Tea served in the Drawing Room
Lunch at a traditional pub in Dublin
Lunch during our excursion to N. Ireland
YOGA + ACTIVITIES
Daily vinyasa flow yoga and/or meditation will be led by instructor Shari Hochberg of Sole Yoga Holidays.
We will practice in a special room at our location decorated by candles and a beautiful, arched ceiling. If the weather should cooperate (hello, this is Ireland!) there is a magical spot under a canopy of trees we can practice or share a morning meditation with the chirpy birds to keep us company.
In between yoga, we can relax in the outdoor hot tub, hike around the local area or pamper ourselves in a luxurious spa treatment.
One day we will go on a private tour to Dublin to view this incredible and vibrant city. We will indulge in local foods and explore the must-see spots of Trinity Library, Temple Bar and so much more. This will be an unforgettable day of eating, drinking and exploring. We will do yoga in the morning before we depart and (hopefully) practice when we return!
Another do-not-miss excursion includes a visit to the magnificent natural wonder of Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland on one of Europe’s most majestic coastlines. Other highlights include the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and perhaps a stopover to the Bushmill’s Whiskey Distillery. We will certainly be feeling the Irish cheer after this wonderful day together!
Other optional activities include: guided local hikes, horseback riding, cooking lessons. We can help arrange it all for your perfect wellness holiday.
