This New Wellness Event Will Take Place At Groove Festival This Month


Has your fast-paced lifestyle left you feeling overwhelmingly stressed? Then you need more mindfulness in your life — which is exactly what you’ll find at Thrive.

For the fifth year running, Groove Festival is returning to Killruddery House & Gardens in Bray on Saturday, August 19 and Sunday, August 20 for a celebration of music, food and the Irish summer.

Not only that, but they also want to help improve your mental and physical wellbeing.

Thrive, Where Retreat Meets Music is an all new area has been added to this year’s celebration, where you’ll find over 35 activities that are all geared towards promoting wellness.

Start your day with a vibrant dance class at Morning Gloryville, stretch yourself happy with Platinum Pilates or achieve a zen state of mind with Kundalini Yoga.
