What can be better than a day’s fox hunting in Ireland? The cry of the hounds, the sound of the hunting horn, the thrill of jumping over natural fences, and the sheer style of this equestrian sport is available to everyone for our guests at Bunglasha Lodge. We enjoy the hunts of East Clare Harriers, the Scarteens, the North Tipperary and the Galway Blazers practically on our doorstep.
DAY 1 – ARRIVAL
Arrival at lunchtime at Shannon Airport, Mini-bus transfer to Killaloe where you will be ferried by cruiser to Bunglasha Lodge. With a ‘hot toddy’ on board the cruiser, arrive at the Lodge to a true Irish welcome. Take time to settle in, absorb the warmth and comfort of your luxurious surroundings, with Guinness or Whiskey at the bar, where the drinks are complimentary. Enjoy a log & turf fire which greets you on arrival, and tuck into Killaloe tea and scones. Dinner will be served by our chef, and a choice of menus can be pre-selected.
Enjoy as our guests the true Irish hospitality, and spend 3 nights staying at the superb Bunglasha Lodge, where you will enjoy wonderful local food, visit local lakeside hostelries, relax with friends, and carry out the sport of our kings. Hunting in Ireland is unrivalled and we welcome guests from the United Kingdom and Europe, as well as further afield, to our countryside, where shooting and fishing can also be incorporated in a flexible way to suit our guests’ requests.
We start with a full Irish breakfast, cooked by chef, again feel free to choose a lighter Continental repast if you wish. Join the Galway Blazers Hunt, and we will provide suitable hunters depending on your riding standard, whether novice or proficient. The scenery is magnificent, in the lakeside environs, across the unspoilt countryside of the Mid-Western region of Ireland. You will hunt with local huntsmen who are very familiar with the area and know how to enjoy themselves. That night, return to a local pub/restaurant for some good food.
Sunday morning, full Irish breakfast will be served to you before you are collected and brought to your pre planned hunt for the day. Another great day of hunting with the East Clare Harriers.
Then you will enjoy traditional Irish Pub hospitality with your Hunting friends and exchange some “tall” stories. That evening return to Bunglasha Lodge, where you will be served a delightful 5 course meal by our Chef. Relax and enjoy the log fire and some nice ‘hot toddy’ from the Bar.
DAY 4 – DEPARTURE
Breakfast is served from our extensive Menu, followed by a peaceful walk through the Woodlands surrounding the Lodge, overlooking the Lake. Take a shopping trip to Ennis or visit Bunratty Castle & Folk Park en-route to Shannon Airport (depending on flight time). It is your party, you may vary the events as you choose and Teresa Browne will be pleased to create your events package within the framework above, and make suggestions as to how to get the best out of your stay with us. We are flexible with this itinerary, so please let us know your requirements and we will plan accordingly.
We know how important it is to relax and revive yourself after the exertions of each day hunting, so your every need will be catered for at Bunglasha Lodge.
