Splurge a little

We wouldn’t be a festival of surprises if we didn’t urge you to turn your back on ticking clocks and head down the crooked paths and the small trails of the Ballinlough Castle. We guarantee you’ll stumble upon a great array of experiences, from awe-inspiring pop-up dinners to intimate blind date opportunities.

By pre-booking your experiences, you’ll be able to plan your weekend with ease and ensure that you don’t miss out on any of the incredible events we have on offer.

Take a look at some of our highlights below.

First Tastes

Looking for love this festival season? Our ‘First Tastes’ could be the answer.

Singles attending the festival are invited to apply for a blind date with a like-minded spirit. The couples will be welcomed and introduced by the Endless Love Team in the Walled Garden for a delicious artisan picnic and a complimentary drink. Dates are a steal at €25 per person and fees are collected on the day.

Feast Over Fire

Ireland’s preeminent food publication, Guzzle will host a collective dining experience that will awaken the senses and draw us closer together. 

For Body & Soul 2023, Guzzle will collaborate with chefs Tom Arnold & Tom Hayes to showcase the breadth of producers who are nourishing and feeding the island of Ireland. Local, seasonal ingredients will be prepared in the walled gardens at Ballinlough Castle and cooked over a naked flame. The menus will be created with as little intervention as possible, serving fresh produce in each course with wine.

Imagine breaking bread, glasses clinking, and conversations flowing in a setting of absolute culinary mastery.
