The Lodge at Ashford Castle launches Don Conroy weekend painting package

Yes, you did read that correctly.

The Lodge at Ashford Castle has planned a Don Conroy weekend painting workshop package, featuring the man himself.

The new package, available to book this October, allows guests to learn how to paint or improve upon existing artistic skills with Don Conroy himself on the stunning grounds of Ashford Castle.

The two-night B&B in early October features two dinners and drinks receptions hosted by Don, where he will exhibit his artistic skills and encourage guests to get inspired by the rather gorgeous views across Lough Corrib.

Don, who was a regular on RTÉ’s The Den in the 80s and 90s, delighted the nation once again during lockdown with the timely and necessary launch of his YouTube channel, Draw with Don. 

The channel is wholesome, it's educational, and it's incredibly soothing. Couple that with a few nights in Ashford Castle and you've got yourself a divine enough weekend planned.

The planned package will take place on October 2 - 4. Early booking is essential as spaces are limited for the Don Conroy workshops, so if you fancy yourself a weekend filled with wholesome painting and Don's dulcet tones, you know what to do.

Prices for a two-night B&B break including a drinks reception hosted by Don, dinner each evening plus the weekend painting tutorial, start from €765 for two people sharing a deluxe room or €1257 for two adults and two children under 12 years in a suite.

Pricey, but hey, it's Don Conroy. And Ashford Castle.
