Golden Mile Retreats
Retreat center for the arts, hold workshops, events, retreats/accommodation. Writers, artIsts retreats, both internationally/locally
Our long term goal is to have a retreat center in rural Ireland (by the lake) to cater for artists events. Gathering the creative from across the globe. Sharing the Irish culture and "craic" whilst enjoying sharing the creative side of life with others.
We presently have a large property on two acres "Golden Mile Retreats, I want to expand into the land to build extra units for accommodation. I am a poet and there is high demand for writers retreats in Ireland, together with arts retreats. This is a niche market with enormous potential. We need the finance to get planning to expand into more accommodation needed for the center.
We are excited about this project as it bring to the area a new experience which involves artistic tourists both internationally and nationally. We have great vision and expectations for this project and want to share the experience with those beneficiaries who love the creative aspect of this endeavor.
We plan for up to 8 geodesic type domes accommodating 2 or more people, surrounding a large pond, with gardens and orchards meandering throughout. The center itself will host the workshops and events.
Risks and challenges
Planning is to be sought for accommodation expansion. The planning department has showed great interest in the project and so has grant funding bodies. I need planning. If no planning is granted then I still run the retreats but on a smaller scale. The project is by a nature walk and lake, on the "Golden Mile" which is an award winning heritage road. The area is very scenic and full of heritage which features a lake, ancient castle site and much more. The project is very versatile and adaptable to various genres.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
