The Best Instagram Snaps From Body & Soul

20th Jun 2015

The sun has been splitting the trees all weekend and thousands flocked to the Body & Soul Festival in Ballinlough Castle. Today is the last day of the event. We’ve (those from the Image.ie team who haven’t gone) have had major cases of FOMO and episodes of what we can only describe as pure psychotic jealously, but it hasn’t been all bad. Thanks to the power of Instagram and social media we’ve had a glimpse of how fabulous the whole thing has been, and rounded up a few of our favourite snaps for you below. They were so good that we just couldn’t ignore them. Are any of your snaps featured?

No wonder she looks so happy:

This ‘shift shack’ is an amazing idea:

Sure it wouldn’t be an Irish festival without some shiftin’ – now we’ve got a shack for it #bodysoul15 A photo posted by Body&Soul (@bodyandsoulirl) on

The whole set up looked totally gorgeous:
