Escape the hustle and bustle of the modern world with a stay at Finn Lough bubble domes.
Get cosy under the duvet (inside your grand four-poster bed) and stargaze out of the 180-degree see-through walls, completely immersing yourself in the quaint surroundings. All bubbles come complete with an ensuite bathroom, high-end amenities and a daily breakfast, giving you the chance to really relax and unwind in Northern Ireland’s luscious countryside.
The Finn Lough estate is also home to an extraordinary sensory spa. The Element Trail Experience rewards guests for spending time in the Fermanagh and Donegal landscape with a number of wellness stops, each nestled amongst the trees.
The two-hour trail includes a float room – equipped with a flotation bath filled with stress-relieving salts – a lakeside Finnish sauna with floor-to-ceiling window (followed by a quick dip in the lake to cool off), an aromatherapy cabin and an exquisite outdoor hot tub overlooking the lake. You’ll end the trail in the relaxation room, sipping on complimentary tea and taking in the serene scenery. And with just two people allowed to enter the trail every 30 minutes, it’ll feel like you’ve got the place to yourselves.
Join local skipper Barry Flanagan on a boat trip to the Fermanagh lakelands. Starting from Enniskillen – Ireland’s only island town – you’ll head out onto the water to hear poignant tales of island life and see secretive residents, like the kingfisher. Nowadays the islands are only inhabited by around 500 people, meaning you’ll be surrounded by luxurious silence. Routes change depending on the seasons and the movements of wildlife, so you’ll be treated to unique sights and sounds at different times of year.
Make your way to Hare Krishna Island for a day of divine discovery. Sunday is said to be the best day to visit the temple, as you can learn about the Hare Krishna culture, philosophy and way of life, and tuck in to a delicious vegetarian feast. If you want to dig deeper into the faith, then stay for a night or two to really experience the temple lifestyle. You’ll be able to learn how to meditate and better understand the spiritual side to life, and even spectate on the multiple ceremonies that happen every day.
