Autumn Wellness on the shores of Lough Corrib. Autumn is upon us, the wind is colder, the leaves are falling and the plants and animals listen to the call to rest for the quieter season ahead. Autumn is a time to nourish your roots, build your resources and repair your fences. We live in a world where traditional lines between home and work are blurred. The boundaries between the personal and professional, loved ones and colleagues, work and entertainment is harder to define and our roots can feel less secure. Stepping away and into nature is a fabulous way to nourish your soul and connect to your roots and set healthy personal boundaries. On October 9 th we will host a Yoga and Wellness Weekend in the magical setting of Curra Farm on the shores of Lough Corrib. Wild birds, Islands, water, woods, animals are just outside the accommodation. This setting is ideal for nourishing your body and mind. A step away from the normal. Time to reflect, time to walk, time to move, time to create, time to rest, time to reconnect with yourself. Come with yoga mat, woolly jumpers and socks, walking shoes, water-proofs and your comfortable clothing. We will spend as much time as we can outside but be reassured your accommodation is just as lovely as the surroundings so expect big fire, comfort and ease!!! The activities will include Yoga, forest bathing and Mindful practices with Fidelma Sheridan of Renmore Yoga. (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) Empowerment workshop with Eileen Bennett. (2hr) Creative Jewellery Making Workshop with Berina Kelly of Berina Kelly Jewellery (2.5hr) Painting Workshop with Leonie Sutton of Leonie Sutton Art (2 hr) Bio Energy, Reiki, Indian Head Massage and Accunet treatments with Úna Mcnerney (optional over weekend)

Ireland's weather

Not too hot and not too cold – you'll find Ireland's climate just right!

In Ireland, everyone talks about the weather. Whether it's discussing the direction of the rain from a supermarket doorway, or musing that it's 75°F in March from a bar counter. Irish weather can be unpredictable, so we like to discuss it. A lot! Ireland's climate is influenced most by the Atlantic Ocean. As a result, it doesn’t have the extreme temperatures that other countries at similar latitude would have. The average temperature is a mild 50°F. A major warm ocean current called the North Atlantic Drift keeps sea temperatures mild too. Hills and mountains, mainly around the coast of Connemara, shelter the rest of the island from strong winds coming off the ocean. So while the weather can be changeable – it's rarely extreme.

The seasons: spring and summer

In spring (February to April), the average highest temperatures range from 46 to 54°F, with April considered particularly pleasant. In summer (May to July), the averages for highest temperatures are between 64 and 68°F. The warmest months, July and August, get about 18 hours of daylight and it gets dark only after 11pm. Hence the well-worn phrase in Ireland; "sure there's a grand stretch in the evenings".

The seasons: autumn and winter

In autumn, (August to October) highest temperatures hit between 64 and 57°F. September is considered a mild, temperate month. Winter air temperatures inland normally reach 46°F, while the coldest months are January and February. The temperature drops below freezing intermittently, and apart from a few freak cold snaps, snow is scarce.

When to visit Ireland

There's no such thing as a perfect time to visit Ireland. The summer months are considered high season for visitors. They come for the long sunny evenings, parks in full bloom and eating al fresco in cafés. And of course in summer, there are festivals around every corner. Autumn and spring are mid-seasons for travelers. You'll enjoy kicking bronze-burnished leaves about in autumn, while spring sees nature kick into gear and flowers blossom. As for winter, a walk through a national park on a clear, crisp winter's day can mean seeing nature at its most impressive.
