It’s that time of year when the summer season is still in full force, but we’re looking ahead to a colourful autumn and even the colder winter months with anticipation, because we’ve got some special treats in store for you!
This year we’re teaming up with James at the Happy Mind Studio to bring an irresistible weekend just for you: Just imagine, it’s Friday, you’ve had a long week at work and you have to commute home, cook supper and do the washing up. Instead, you could head here to Rossclare Lodge and let us do the cooking and washing up, whilst you take part in a lovely relaxation in the lounge by the fire before heading up to bed. The cookie jar in your room will be full and refilled if you can’t resist munching them all before breakfast!
After a good night’s sleep you’ll be served a fabulous breakfast before enjoying some fresh air and a little walk followed by your first of two restorative mindfulness sessions with James. There will be a yummy lunch and some free time during the day, and even a longer walk for those who fancy stretching their legs a bit more. After a light supper in the evening James will be here to offer another longer session of mindfulness relaxation, either by the fire in the lounge or, if the weather is dry, the session could be under the stars, around the firepit. Imagine that!
We’re also offering the option of an earlier arrival on Friday to enjoy one of our delicious afternoon teas, and an Irish music session with Jim after supper on Saturday. He’ll teach you a couple of traditional folk songs and sea shanties to sing along with if you’re lucky.
Breakfast on Sunday will include Sunday papers and a bottomless pot of coffee (or tea) in the lounge before you leave. No rush, we’re extending our check out time to 11.30am especially for you.
We can’t imagine a better way to relax and unwind during those long autumn and winter months when summer still seems so far away. You know you deserve some me time, so to book this wonderful treat, call us directly at Rossclare Lodge (028 6862 1487) to make your reservation and to share your dietary preferences. Couples and singles are welcome. The weekend will go ahead with a minimum of four people attending.
