Take an afternoon or late evening stroll and enjoy all the peace and tranquillity that our splendid, lake-view, wooded walkway has to offer, or enjoy a brisk, early morning sprint before setting out on a day’s fishing. On the morning after the night before, go for a leisurely stroll in the country-fresh, clean air, and allow the sounds and scents of nature clear your head and restore and rejuvenate you, in mind, body and spirit. Throw off your troubles and cast your worries into the “Lake of the fairy pool” – Lough Sheelin, before heading off for a lakeside ramble.
As you stroll along our wonderful, wooded walkway, allow your attention to rest gently on the soothing sights and sounds of nature. Notice the call of the sedge warbler and blackcap as they swoop and swirl among the trees and hedgerows that border lovely Lough Sheelin. Hear the gentle rhythm and rhyming swish of small boats as they bob lazily on the deep blue shores of the lake. Listen to the cooing call of the wood pigeon and the crunching underfoot sound of breaking twigs and allow your senses to be filled with the fresh fragrances of nature’s rich and benevolent, lake-view, wooded walkway.
“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it”.
Our fairy garden is a dynamic happy space full of the unexpected. Our head gardener Louise and her team created our Fairy Garden in 2016 and it is renowned for its beauty all year round. It is the perfect space to embrace the outdoors and to have hours of fun searching for the magical fairies that live on the shores of Lough Sheelin. It is also home to our turtles Waffle and Peanut who love to pop out to welcome our guests.
