~ A Day Devoted to Health and Wellness ~

Speakers: Darina Allen & Rachel Allen

Explorers of good health and living are invited to the first-ever Ballymaloe Good Living Day on Sunday 7 February.  Come be a part of this dynamic, day-long event devoted to wellness of mind, body, and spirit.

Talks by seven wide-ranging and thought-provoking speakers will be held in Ballymaloe Grainstore between 10am and 4pm.  All talks are included in the €10 entry fee. An abundance of stalls for both learning and shopping will be on hand, while local kitchen heroes will serve up delicious, nutritious food throughout the day.


Another feature of the day is the Ballymaloe Relish 5k Lucky Run  to celebrate and reward the joys of movement.  Cash prizes and Ballymaloe hampers will be awarded, and not just to the fastest runners – a bit of luck is involved!  Only 200 places are available and entry to all Good Living Day events are included in the €15 registration. Pre-booking is essential on


“Our objective is for visitors to come away with at least one new life enhancing idea or thought to carry forward in 2016 and beyond,” says Ballymaloe Grainstore proprietor, Rory Allen.  “Anyone keen to enhance their lifestyle both mentally and physically will find something of interest at the Good Living Day.”

The day begins at 10am with household advice and a Q&A with Darina Allen, while at noon Rachel Allen will lead an informal discussion on the importance of leading a balanced life.  Other topics range from music therapy and managing dyslexia, to the magic of microbes and universal energy arts.

Kite surfer and self-confessed ‘water man’, Ryan Coote, will talk about how he allows the winds and waves to decide his future, believing knowledge of the ocean and the changing weather keeps us feeling truly alive.

Tickets for the Ballymaloe Good Living Day on Sunday 7 February are €10. Entry for the Ballymaloe Relish 5K Lucky Run are €15 and include admission to all events.  Both may be booked on
