Edel : Hi Kate thank you so much for a beautiful day. It was really a magical experience connecting with the mother and all the elements. The bees were fascinating and I would love to learn more about them. I really enjoyed the breath work and meditation we did and I had a very profound experience .i really felt clensed and renewed after all the rain and feel it helps me connect on a deeper level with nature.It was a blessing to enter into the fields and then the sycamore woods meeting the mother tree 💓 she had amazing energy she shared with me she did not like the barbed wire and she loved primrose and flowers this was not a request just a sharing. I feel the experience of the day brought me back to when i was a child when nothing’s was complicated and everything was just as it was .much gratitude . And i would highly recommend Beewild .My friend who is a yoga teacher in youghal is interested next time you’re doing the day and if you would like she will share on her group kind regards Edel 🌳🌳🦡 ps The custard doughnuts 👀😋
Joan : Kate’s BeeWild experience is a feast for all the senses. Thought provoking, mind opening, deeply insightful, yet gentle and spiritual. Led by the inspiring, warm and beautiful Kate, we strolled through the beautiful countryside surrounded by Bees, lush nature and guided by Kate to feel part of and and more appreciative towards the beautiful planet and all she and the Bees do for us🥰❤️ Le grá
Stella : Kate has an amazing love for nature and is so authentic in who she is and her true passions. To experience the bees and their hives has given me a whole new found respect for the power of these special creatures. I loved being out in nature and it thought me the importance of stepping back and simplifying things. The power of touching the soil , breathing in fresh air and being still and immersed in it’s beauty. Reconnection with the breath and a shared experience with new people made it all so worth while to recalibrate. Much love and thanks, keep being you .
Anne : Hi Kate wow!! What a beautiful experience. I loved all the info on the bees 🐝 sooo cool. I can’t eat honey now without thinking about how much work and how many flowers and bees are involved in it – liquid gold, that’s what it is. And walking through the field of oats and the canopy created by your teenage trees with the glimpses of light shining through and the gentle meditation…. I loved it all. Thanks so much Kate. Anne
Naomi : I joined Kate recently on one of her wild journeys, it was truly a beautiful experience. If you want to learn about the magic of bees, connect with nature and perhaps yourself then I definitely recommend heading into the woods with Kate.
Amy : I headed into Kate’s farm on a wet and wonderful day to meet her much-cherished bees, intrigued by her abundant connection to mother nature. It was like going back to a place of childhood innocence, seeing and appreciating nature through her eyes. It was a feast for the senses. The rainfall only added to my different sensations, washing away what no longer served and channelling new beginnings. What remained with me after the session was the sense of freedom Kate lives by, and the unconditional respect she holds for all god’s creatures, the land, the plants, and the infinity of trees that surround her. Thanks for the inspiration, Kate, and for mindfully planting inside of me a new-found respect for bees and the golden amber nectar they work so hard to create.
Rodolfo : Great experience and immersion into beekeeping with Kate. It was amazing to be so close to the hives, and the sensorial experience of touching the combs, smelling them, feeling the texture and tasting different types of honey she had. It’s also great to see how she does this with passion and sensibility. The foresting plus breathing exercise took us to another level of understanding of the overall experience. I’d highly recommend it.
Paddy : I had the most amazing experience on Kate’s BeeWild adventure. Her passion and knowledge about the bees was evident very early on. It was fascinating to learn all about the processes that happen for one jar of honey to be produced and to see the inner workings of the hives was amazing. The time we spent out in nature among the forests and the fields was equally as amazing. It’s great to slow down and appreciate the wonderful world of nature that surrounds us everyday and it was great to absorb Kate’s passion for the earth & nature while learning about the importance of the biodiversity on this planet.
Claire + Michael : BeeWild was such a great evening. Having just moved to Midleton we were looking to see what different activities were available locally. Kate’s bee and forest bathing evening was definitely something we would recommend. Her genuine live for bee’s and the environment is infectious and really entices you to make the most out of the evening. Leaving the event we felt grounded and a lot more in tune with the environment. Bonuses included trying some delicious honey, learning about bees, supporting local, seeing Kate’s crazy polytunnel (Who knew you could grow melons and avocados in Ireland) and exploring the forest.
Rebecca + Rob : Just wanted to say thank you so much for yesterday! It was an absolutely wonderful experience we are buzzing since 😁🌎💕 we had an amazing time! Today a queen bee flew into the house and I managed to set it free! I am eager to get into beekeeping someday! 😀 Just wondering do you do meditation sessions in general? Also would I be able to get another tub of honey sometime this week as my auntie tried it and is obsessed! She’s hoping to bring some jars back to england with her.
Aisling : Good evening Kate
Thank you so much for yesterday journeys, it was truly a beautiful experience. If you want to learn about the magic of bees, connect with nature I didn’t know what too expect from the day But it was totally 💯 one of the most relaxing experience ever single element to learning about the bees 🐝 which was so interesting and even got to get my hands on a few jars of what I would describe as liquid gold. Next stop was too the woods filled with beautiful sycamore Tree’s walking though the field full of clover onto the crunch of the little sticks from the harvest and into the woods the crunch of the beautiful autumn leaves. The forest bathing was magical, followed by the amazing meditation which I will remember for a long time the walk back was just beautiful to explore your wonderful vegetable garden. Thank you so much for a wonderful Saturday afternoon
Jennifer : Thank you Cait for facilitating such a wonderfully magical mindfulness experience. I was impacted greatly by your teachings of the importance of protecting our wildlife and bees and extensive knowledge on nature and our planet. Beautiful guided meditation and gorgeous honey tasting was also a highlight of the day. I would highly recommend this workshop which also provides a friendly warm atmosphere for those attending alone and wish to try something new, make new connections and have a relaxing self-care experience. 🐝💜Thank you again and looking forward to doing another one with you in the future.
Jen : Hi Kate, myself and Luke are just back to Wexford now. We just wanted to say a massive thanks for today, neither of us could stop talking about it in the car. It was such a magical experience and we’re both looking forward to getting our own bees now 🥰 the forest bathing in the rain was surreal too. I’ll be recommending it to anyone and everyone – definitely an amazing experience ❤️ Thanks again! Jen
Went to a fantastic workshop to learn all about bees, beekeeping, meditation and forest bathing. Honestly was such a fantastic experience, getting inspiration to live more consciously and in tune with nature. Kate is a wealth of information and I couldn’t recommend her workshop anymore!

Morgen : Join Kate on her beekeeping workshop in Cork! Her knowledge is extensive on bees and our connection to nature. Her passion is palpable and inspiring. Thank you Kate for sharing your energy with the world. Your energy and zest for life is magic! Thanks for an absolutely brilliant day. I’ll definitely be back again.
Chris : Thank you Kate for sharing your experiences and love of nature. It was a lovely, joyful day. As in life a storm came, but it did pass by to let the sun shine again ❤
Debbie Walsh (29.01.23) : I had the most amazing time yesterday with @catch.cait on her Bee Wild workshop on her family farm here in East Cork .

Lisa : Thank you, Kate, for the Beewild couple of hours spent together. I enjoyed being there with you. It’s so interesting to hear your story and how you’re doing your beekeeping/hosting. I have been following the College of the Melissa(US based)’s online teachings. I love slowing down in Nature, and you taking us through the woods was a perfect way. Seeing the ladybug clusters was a real treasure 🙏🙂🐞🐝
