The Even Better Than Good, Friday Gincident! Yoga, Gin & Laughs

Love Gin? Love Yoga? Love getting away for a night for laughter and relaxation? We have the perfect getaway for you this Easter!

Due to popular demand, we are running The Gincident!” at The elbowroom escape on Good Friday the 10th – 11th April!

We are delighted to host an alternative evening of fun that will leave us feeling relaxed and rejuvenated – full of laughter, love, and liquor!

You’ll arrive at our luxurious mountain lodge in the Wicklow Mountains before partaking in a compound gin making class, using organic botanicals to flavour your own gin. You will then be guided on a short walk, if you feel like it, soak the stress of everyday life away as you relax in a wonderful restorative yoga class, followed by a delicious organic meal prepared by our in-house chef.

After dinner, let your troubles slip away as you are welcome to indulge in our luxurious hot-tub in the middle of the countryside – glass in hand, of course.

Wake up to a much-needed nourishing stretch of the body with a Morning Hatha yoga class (suitable for all levels)
