If you’ve decided that 2018 is the year you will finally get fit, reduce stress, and make time for family and friends, Killarney is the place to get started. Book a break at Killarney’s Holiday Village for the New Year and make the most of the incredible resources we have here. We have gathered some ideas on what you can do in Killarney to make sure the coming year is your best year yet:

Get Active

When you stay at Killarney’s Holiday Village you’re just minutes’ walk from Killarney National Park, so whether you are aiming to shed the pounds, boost your fitness levels, or a bit of both, you could not be in a better place. Even better, should you choose to stay here for a weekend, you can take part in the free weekly parkrun event in Muckross on Saturday mornings at 9.30. Weekly runs are free—just register on the parkrun website and bring your barcode with you to the car park at Muckross House in time for the run. In January, Operation Transformation collaborates with parkrun to get people moving and losing weight in a fun, inspiring way.

Afterward, you can return to the comfort of your holiday home for a refreshing shower, relax, and you’ll still have the rest of the day to enjoy!

Take Care of Yourself

If you are finding stress is getting too much for you and you feel you are not handling the pressure well, escape to Killarney for a mindfulness course. There are several qualified mindfulness practitioners in Kerry, some of who schedule events in Killarney or in other scenic locations such as Dingle. Soak up the beauty and serenity of your surroundings while gaining from the guidance of your instructor and learn to nurture yourself in a positive and productive way.

Susan Barratt offers short introductory courses and Sunday morning workshops in Killarney, Listowel, and Tralee. The Kalyana Centre for Mindfulness teaches mindfulness and stress reduction in Dingle. And if you are familiar with the practice of mindfulness already, you will find the peaceful surroundings of Killarney National Park the perfect environment for your own meditative retreat at Killarney’s Holiday Village

Make Time for What Matters

The biggest regret that many people have is a failure to spend enough quality time with the people who matter in their lives. Why not get 2018 off to the best possible start, and book a few days with family or friends at Killarney’s Holiday Village? You could have a spa day with your sisters, go for afternoon tea with your mother, or hike the Old Kenmare Way with your oldest friends. Whatever way you choose to spend it, time spent in Killarney with your nearest and dearest is always quality time.
