Ard Nahoo organic dinner

1. Ard Nahoo Health Farm & Eco Lodges

Staying in the sweetest little eco-cabin, Emily enjoyed a lovely yoga hour, beautiful walks and the most delicious vegan dinner, which she ate in front of a crackling stove. According to Emily, the place had a very special calmness and it’s definitely a place she would like to go back to - but for several days next time.

2. Delphi Lodge, Connemara

According to Emily, when she drove up to Delphi Lodge in Connemara, it felt like she was beamed directly into the film Pride & Prejudice. Delphi lodge is nestled right by a lake and even though it is stately, it is also cosy and has a down to earth atmosphere. It's a great place to pull the plug for a few days!

 
Connemara

3. Connemara National Park and Kylemore Abbey

Emily thought Connemara national park was beautiful and had walking routes for every taste and ability. Emily also made a visit to Kylemore Abbey, a Benedictine monastery founded in 1920, which to Emily looked like an incredibly beautiful castle. Kylemore is located next to a lake in Connemara with a very beautiful and large garden full of flowers.

5. Practical point 

Emily had her fears driving “on the wrong side of the road” - She had never tried driving on the left before. However, with the driver's seat, steering wheel, etc., all inverted, Emily found it not at all as bad as she had feared! Find more information on driving in Ireland here
