The towns and townlands of Kilkee, Querrin and Ross have come together to offer activities to promote Health and Wellbeing to those in need of some time-out, during their Spring Loop Head Wellness weekend running from the 27th to the 29th of April.

In Victorian times, Kilkee was often mentioned as ‘The fashionable bathing place to immerse oneself in the healing waters of the Atlantic’. Indeed the entire Loop Head area was, and still is renowned for its clean air. Both the sea and the sea air have regenerative, restorative effects on the mind and body. 

Purecamping Yoga Centre in Querrin will be offering Yoga, Meditation, Relaxation and Qigong classes throughout this weekend in April with experienced teachers, Trea Heapes and Kevin Copeland. While our modern day seaweed bath house, Kilkee Thalassotherapy centre, will have seaweed baths and massage on offer. Nutritional therapist, Hilary Gleeson will enlighten us on the benefits of eating local ‘in-season’ food with demonstrations and tastings, and Carmel T. Madigan of the Loop Head Summer Hedge School will lead an exploration of Ross shore, identifying and tasting seaweeds on the way.

The provision of vegetarian lunches and dinners carefully planned and prepared by the Haugh sisters of Stella Maris Hotel will lighten the load further for those needing a complete break from the challenges of everyday life. 

When: 27-29th April
