Finn Lough

Join Mandy for a week-long yoga retreat in verdant Ireland. We'll stay one night in the famous capital city of Dublin before we head north into a remote peninsula in the woods at Finn Lough, a quiet hideaway that has been nourishing weary souls for over 30 years. Still run by the same family that started it in 1983, their mission is to to provide a place of quiet calm in this ever-moving world. This will be a retreat to disconnect from our busy lives and reconnect to the living, breathing world around us. 


Finn Lough is designed with the surroundings in mind, each room is a nod to the nature beyond. Not just a place to rest your head but to inspire, restore and relax. As you pass through their gates you are invited to let out a deep breath and feel your mind unfurl as you slow things down to nature's rhythm. Being at Finn Lough should feel like total escapism; switch off as you flow through a thermal spa trail, sample the local flavors, and explore the waters that surround the property.


Their take on food is that we are connected with nature, so they make sure their food is too. Like our ancestors, they have bypassed convenience to forge a slow connection with the local land and lakes. Eating and drinking at Finn Lough is different. Their flavors are seasonal; their experiences are authentic and original. Like the sound of the water lapping at the shore, the flavors of Finn Lough reconnect your thoughts to nature - to a calm sense of pleasure.


During this retreat we will slow down and relax. Our days will be filled with yoga, meditation, reading, writing, and self-care. We will be eating luxurious, healthy meals, and everyone will have the opportunity to enjoy the self-guided elements trail spa. This experience offers a private two-hour experience, flowing through a series of treatment cabins nestled in the forest combining hot and cold therapy. You'll emerge from the trail feeling renewed after a private audience with nature.

The Forest Domes

The young and young-at-heart love the breathtaking experience of sleeping under the stars in the luxury of Finn Lough's bubble domes. Each dome is secluded – a private pod of luxury deep in the forest. There’s no TV, no wi-fi and nothing to get in the way of a totally chilled out stay.


The bubbles are tucked away in the private forest and are accessible via the forest trails. Each features a four-poster bespoke oak bed, Nespresso coffee machine, and en-suite bathroom. You have the option of staying in a bubble dome for Friday night!
