Champagne Pilates in Dublin

June 14 – 17 2018

Enjoy an AWG weekend in Dublin at the magnificent Dublin Sea View Villa on the Dublin Bay. Three days and nights of Fun, Fitness, Food and Culture. 

After a morning walk, you’ll have a super healthy smoothie to get you fueled for an hour of “easy does it Pilates”. Following our fitness session, we’ll all gather on the terrace overlooking the Irish Sea for a congratulatory Champagne toast.  You take the afternoon for yourself, hang out on the terrace and relax with a book, walk to the local village and shop in the boutiques, or take the train to Dublin, and experience the city through the lens of one of the many festivals happening that weekend. 

Bloomsday Festival: For the literary lovers among us, this is a super crazy but uber fun happening that retraces the events of the book Ulysses (based in Dublin) by James Joyce. This has a devoted cult following sure to make you see the Irish in a whole new light.  Click to see the highlights of Bloomsday 2017.  We have a walk with a professional guide for our group scheduled on June 16th.

Taste of Dublin: For all you Foodies (and who isn’t) there is the Annual Taste of DublinBuy a ticket online and spend the afternoon or evening testing out the best restaurants and chefs in Dublin.

  • Dublin Castle
  • The Dublin Writer’s Museum

  • Trinity College and the Book of Kells

Reviews:

"I cannot possibly think of a better way to visit Ireland, especially for the first time!  I found the weekend magical! Dalkey is a charming village, and it was a treat to wake up each morning to the magnificent view of the bay.  The house is both luxurious and comfortable, and the garden is beautiful!  The fitness weekend was well-organized and fun. I left feeling relaxed, healthy and happy…what more could I ask for!!"  ~ Betsy K.
 
 "It was such a magical weekend - the place, the people, the fitness and the fun.  I hope everyone enjoyed the experience as much as I did." ~ Stacy B.
 
"I absolutely loved the weekend! 
The house is beautiful, it's in a spectacular location & was perfect for the purpose of the fitness classes. It was wonderful to look out onto the sea from the room downstairs whilst holding a yoga position or sweating buckets from the step class! 
I loved the mix of exercising in the mornings followed by trips into the fair city of Dublin in the afternoons. 
The healthy, delicious menu was the icing on the (healthy) cake. 
I would definitely recommend such a weekend to friends, & would definitely do a similar weekend again. The organisation was fantastic!!" ~ Susan W.
