Answering The Call
- In answering enchanting call of our highest selves.
- As we escape to the ancient beauty of the Atlantic west Coast of Ireland, we will see the patterns of nature, culture and art around us. We see that within ourselves there is a natural pattern and beauty also. Because of social conditioning, it’s easy to have the thread of our being threaded by toxic threads. This can be limiting ideas, behaviors, relationships or habits. We will take a gentle look at what we have come here to release.
- Through kind eyes, we see the luxury of being our authentic self. We select the vibrant threads we want in our story going forward as we let the ones that no longer serve us fall away. Through the process of conversation, interaction, art journal entries and self awareness, we will find a path for our new voice. We embrace our freedom to explore and release our true self into the enchanting wilds.
- A hike is planned on the Burren please wear appropriate shoes. Time to be confirmed.
- This is a day of reflection as we visit the Burren .
- Ireland is so much more than 40 shades of green – and nowhere are its many hues more celebrated than in County Clare’s limestone paradise on the Wild Atlantic Way .
- What first hits you is the silence. It’s a silence as layered as the undulating landscape itself, filled with the riches of Irish history; of eons of stories, told and untold. All around you is pale grey stone ribbed with crags and crevices; miniature cliffs spread like mosaics as far as the horizon, and a microcosm of Ireland’s wildlife thrives.
- If we are unfortunate enough, Shane will be our guide. An angry Limerick man who is upset by the loss of Irish women to America. Shane has lived his entire life on the Burren under the shadow of the Mourne mountains. His extensive study of the Burren wildlife and landscape brings great passion and knowledge to his guided walks. That is the reason and the only one, why I put up with his nonsense.
- We will take a Spiritual walk that will bring us to a Holy Well.
- The custom is to leave your worries at the well. Marie is a gentle soul bringing the work of John O’Donahue to life with a reading of his poem Beanacht. (Irish Blessing)
- John O'Donohue was the author of “Anam Cara” meaning friend of the soul in Irish.

Menu/CuisineOur food philosophy at Springfield is simple, we only use fresh, local seasonal produce. We use the seasons as our guide for the dishes we create. We grow as much of our own produce as possible in the walled kitchen gardens and the farm is a working deer farm meaning we have fresh organic venison available on request. Whatever we don’t grow or produce is sourced locally.
. While the food is locally sourced the inspiration for our cooking comes from around the world with family diaspora bringing home dishes from across the world. We have a wide range of options,from Argentinian Asados, Peruvian style ceviche, Italian fire cooked pizza, Indian curries, Spanish tapas, South African barbecues to traditional Irish meals.
Daniel and Ali the chefs and gardeners run the walled garden and grow lots of fresh fruit and vegetables year round from which they create beautiful and tasty mouth watering meals, preserves, pickles, fermented foods and sauces. There are a number of different styles of meals that you can avail of while at Springfield ranging from drop off to formal sit downs, tapa’s nights and a fun filled evening served from a food truck. What best reflects the food mood at Springfield is the Green room and food truck, a unique,intimate and fun space for casual eating with a festive feel for all occasions with friends and family.
