Our family (kids aged 7 & 9) spent a week at the Whistling Along family week at Bog Hill. We all had an excellent time. Gentle and playful morning yoga was a good was to start the day; the kids learned to play some tunes on the Tin Whistle, and my husband and I learned some basics of fiddling (to our surprise and delight!) We greatly enjoyed the afternoon outings to members of the local ecotourism network (farm, nature walk, etc), but Bog Hill is also a great place for parents to sit and relax while the kids explore outside.
The Vegetarian food was simply excellent, and the young Woofers (volunteers) lent a joyful and international atmosphere. The week was organized with great care, warmth, and kindness, especially our end-of-week concert!
One small thing could be improved - the wifi was weak.
We were all sad to go, and are already looking forward to coming back next summer.
