You should be. 

WILD are series of events hosted in unusual and interesting spaces by Lee Tracey, a yoga, meditation and mindfulness teacher turned event planner.

They offer a combination of activities from yoga, meditation, fitness, hikes and talks to live music and gorgeous food. 

Orlagh is an Irish country mansion and estate that was built in Rathfarnham in the 1700s. 


Orlagh is being officially and lovingly brought back to life on September 23 when WILD take over the sweeping grounds for a full day WILD Retreat. 

Orlagh has recently been bought by a group of Irish investors who wish to open its doors back up to the public community by hosting one-off cultural events, gatherings, retreats, music festivals and more. 

It is set to be an amazing and very special place in Dublin.

The WILD Retreat on September 23 will comprise of a fusion of DJs, yoga, movement, meditation, talks, gorgeous grub and a hike through the grounds up to the Hell Fire club followed by a celebratory cheeky gin. 

It’s a full day and it’s the first time anything like this has happened in this significant and historical venue. 

Orlagh is under extensive renovation at the moment in preparation for the WILD Retreat. The Oratory will host the DJ and yoga and the food will be served in the impressive dining hall.
