‘Explore & Restore in Roscommon’



Takes place on 16th & 17th February


Explore & Restore in Roscommon is a health and wellness weekend organised by Roscommon Town Team. The third Explore & Restore in Roscommon will take place on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th February 2019. Free health and wellness events will take place in many locations within the town and local surrounds. 

  Healthy Ireland, through Roscommon County Council, make grants available to community groups in order to fund activities that empower communities to take action for their physical, emotional and mental health. 

  Roscommon Town Team had an open call for local health and wellness providers to express their interest in participating in Explore & Restore. The result is a diverse schedule of workshops, classes, talks and events that highlight what is available locally for the community. Explore & Restore allows you to sample classes and hopefully inspire you to start something new such as yoga, mindfulness, pilates, spinning, barefoot walking, kayaking, or Capoeira.   

  The range of events on offer cater for age groups from 4 years plus. Children can go to a workshop to learn about oral health, mindfulness or Tae-Kwon-Do, while teenagers can attend spinning and movement workshops, and adults have a range of options including a vision board workshop, or an introduction to mindful moving meditation. Adults with mobility issues may like to explore chair yoga, or take part in music, dance and games run by Roscommon Sports Partnership.

  This year Roscommon Town Team have collaborated with local activist group Plastic Free Roscommon to host a number of sustainable living events as part of Explore & Restore. If you are interested in learning more about recycling, green living, green cleaning, zero waste shopping and sustainable diets then check out the sustainability events taking place in Gleeson’s Townhouse. 

  Explore & Restore highlights the natural amenities we have in Roscommon and the relaxed pace of life we can all enjoy. It also displays many of the talented health and wellness providers and for one weekend, the community can sample their classes free of charge! Roscommon Town Team would like to thank Roscommon County Council for their support and Healthy Ireland for their funding. 

  Brochures (printed on 100% recycled paper) with a full schedule of events and booking details are available from Roscommon Tourist Office and local cafes, restaurants, shops, and health centres.
