Rest, reconnect and re-energise during this unique Nurturing Nature retreat, nestled within 350 acres of woodland and a working farm, at the foot of the volcanic mountain Slieve Gullion.

This restorative 2 night relaxation break is an opportunity for you to totally switch off, slow down and reconnect with nature.  The experience includes two x 2- hour forest bathing immersions.

Forest bathing/Shinrin-Yoku is an evidence- based wellness practice which evolved in Japan as a stress prevention intervention.  2 hours in the forest boosts your immunity for up to 10 days.

You will taste this special landscape during tea ceremonies as part of these experiences in the forest with tea especially prepared with herbs and plants from the Estate.

Chill out in the thermal spa and enjoy gentle walks throughout the Estate.

Enjoy home grown, local and seasonal produce during your dining experiences.
