Adare Manor reopens with Spa Mindfulness Walk to complement existing adult and family tours
Guests staying at Adare Manor can now re-energise thanks to a new Mindfulness Walk through the grounds and pristine parkland of the 5-star luxury resort in Co. Limerick, Ireland. This is the first time Imagineear has produced a mindfulness audio guide, delivered on the MPti™ handheld device or the guest’s own smartphone as an Imagineear Web App (IWA). It crosses over into a new business sector of wellbeing for Imagineear, and is offered to Adare Manor’s guests as part of the hotel’s luxurious spa experience.
The audio guide follows an outdoor trail, from the spa, through the gardens to a woodland walk and invites guests to reflect and connect with nature at each of the seven sections that represent the seven pillars of strength, encouraging the use of all senses. Imagineear’s creative expertise helped to overcome the challenge of making sure guests attain and retain a state of relaxation while using technology and following an outdoor route through a range of audio and visual tools.
The guide, voiced by Irish actor Lochlann O Mearáin, gently instructs the user to mindfulness breathing combined with an on-screen animation of expanding and contracting circles to help keep time with the in, out and holding of breaths. An interactive map also helps guests ease through the navigation of the walk and a soothing soundscape of Celtic melodies and singing bowls help signpost when it’s time to move on.
“Clarity and quality of the user experience and interface design were essential in this production.” said Eleonore Heijboer, Imagineear co-founder and Managing Director, Europe. “We also had to ensure the authenticity of the experience, to deliver the high standard that Adare Manor guests expect, and so it was vital that we used a voiceover who is experienced in the practice of yoga and meditation as well as able to speak the Irish phrases and greetings included in the guide.”
The new Spa Mindfulness Walk complements Adare Manor’s adult and family tours produced in 2017.
Colm Hannon, CEO of Adare Manor said, “At Adare Manor, we are very much looking forward to welcoming guests back to relax and re-energise in our beautiful surroundings, calming spa and brand new mindfulness walk. Following our spa treatments, guests will be invited to awaken their senses with our mindfulness walk where they will experience the healing and nurturing wonders of our Irish parkland. The walk is taken alone accompanied by our step-by-step audio guides. The time in the fairy forest will elevate your mind, body and spirit, supporting physical and emotional healing.”
