Perfect for a girls’ weekend away.

Did you know that Donegal was named the ‘Coolest Place on the Planet’ by National Geographic Traveller in 2017? Well now you do and you should most definitely add it to your Irish travel bucket list.

And why not make a whole trip of it and start off with a very relaxing yoga retreat at Lough Eske Castle in Donegal Town. If I just described your idea of heaven, then read on.

Suitable for all levels, including yogi newbies, the two-day retreat includes two vinyasa flow sessions, two gentle yin yoga sessions and a wellness workshop. Not only that, but you’ll also be treated to a full Irish each morning as well as an evening meal in the award-winning onsite Cedars Restaurant on both nights.

As the wild child of Ireland right in the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way, Donegal is known for its rugged beauty and scenery. Guests will get the chance to enjoy some fresh air and explore the stunning grounds with a guided mindfulness walk. You can’t get much better.

The castle itself dates back to the 15th century and acts as the perfect sanctuary for a quiet weekend away. Winner of the ‘World’s Best Luxury Country Hotel’ from 2009 to 2012, the restored castle hotel blends history and comfort together seamlessly.

There’s also a CARA organic beauty spa with an indoor pool for all you water babies.

There's one on in January and another in March, check out the website for more information.

Big fan of yoga. Big fan of Donegal. Big fan of this.
