Description

In a fast-moving, uber-urban tech-driven society, it’s hard to find a slow-paced, haven where like-minded people gather and anything goes.

Body&Soul transforms The Ballinlough Castle Estate in to its own extrasensory experience – with a lavish outdoor Masquerade Ball, a careful selection of international artists and musicians and an annual smattering of unexpected and exciting surprises.

Across the bright canvas of Ballinlough’s Walled Gardens and Woodlands is a twisting labyrinth of cubby-holes and curious corners coloured with hanging pictures, spinning gramophones and a glittering collection of art pieces and installations. Wander to the dreamscape that is the Zen gardens , relax, stretch and unwind in the chilled, lakeside cocoon. Meet acrobats, troubadours, belly dancers and drummers – all appearing and disappearing when you least expect it.

When the sun sets over the festival grounds, the nightowls spread their feathers , emerging with decadent energy and fantastical costume.

When the darker sounds of the night begin, a veil of mischief descends upon the night – wander down a lantern-lit path and find some moonlight tunes by a dream ship, gather round a bass-filled Speakeasy, order a tray of cocktails, get distracted by the trapeze artists or find yourself lost amidst bubbling hot tubs in the canopy of the trees…
