The old saying that you can’t make others happy until you yourself are happy rings ever true. The most effective way to be the best possible version of yourself is to make sure that you are happy, healthy and balanced. This is a combination that is becoming ever more difficult to achieve as working hours and stress levels increase, personal pressures become more and more demanding and we are taking on more in our personal lives than ever before. Stress is not only the biggest killer, it’s the biggest hindrance to you leading a happy and productive life. 

If the idea of a wellness resort involving 4am yoga, wheat grass shots and a vegan / paleo / macrobiotic diet doesn’t appeal, then Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort most definitely will. With a focus not only on health but on general happiness and wellbeing, Tigh-Na-Mara is a wonderful place to relax, regroup, unwind, and rekindle your relationship without the pretentiousness of other wellness resorts.

    Just celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. A weekend at Tigh-na-mara would be an excellent opportunity for my husband and I to not only get away, but to reconnect and strengthen our commitment to each other.

  2. Darcie Nolan

    I need this little R & R vacation because I have been dealing with the stress of my teenage being away in the hospital due to an illness. I am off work & juggling multiple schedules & would love the opportunity to recharge.

    Between raising a one year old, working full time, and working on my masters, my partner and I don’t put enough time and energy into ourselves! A night away would mean the world to us <3

    Never seems to be the right time to getaway, as there is always something stopping me from doing it. A much needed time away to refocus would be a great way to reground myself. This would be a perfect way for me to just getaway and not worry about anything for a chance.

    Your article makes me want to go there with loved ones even I don’t win. Thanks for the great short read and pictures.

    To breathe the sea air, walk the beach, linger in the woods, sip wine and savour great food at #Cedars…relax in the #Grotto Spa…what could be more lovely?
