Magpie girl goes to Lusty Beg Island...Sunday, May 25, 2014
After Dave & I's little trip to Cork we drove up to Fermanagh for a nights stay on the amazing 75 acre Island known as Lusty Beg Island. On first arrival we took the short ferry ride over to the island which was an experience in itself as the ferry is only big enough to hold two cars and a few people. The sun was setting and we were met with the most breath taking views over the surrounding lakes and jetties.
We were told by staff that the island was fully occupied that night with a wedding happening later in the week with most of the guests flying over from New Zealand. Yet on arrival the place was so peaceful you felt you had the place completely to yourselves..
We were staying in a lovely little wooden cabin over looking the lake, with luxurious furnishings and rainfall shower. We were treated to a two course meal and drinks once we had checked in and gathered our bearings. Then we explored the island.
The next morning after a full Irish breakfast, we headed to the Island Spa for their infamous Seaweed detox leaf bath- using only organic products and hand picked seaweed from the Atlantic Irish coast.
Dave & I enjoyed the steam room first to open our pores then relaxed in the seaweed hot baths with cava, strawberries and lemon infused water. The seaweed relaxes the muscles, detoxes, and helps skin renewal... Pretty blissful really!
Before we packed up and said goodbye we took one final explore along a natural trail, down one coast of the island.. Although the weather pretty much rained our whole stay the Island was so pretty you couldnt help but fall in the love with wandering around exploring this little untouched paradise. It truly is an amazing place...
