Join us as we celebrate our 10th Birthday with a New Year's retreat full of joys and delights.


Cliffs of Moher Retreat


New Year’s Retreat & 10 Year Birthday Special

Come and Celebrate our Birthday with us!

One of our most popular retreats, join us for this special event as we set our intentions and greet the year with open hearts.

Wim Hof MethodThe retreat involves Yoga, Meditation, Breathwork,  Sound Baths, Ecstatic Dance and a special Cacao Ceremony as we welcome in the New Year. Sessions will be led by Michelle Moroney and Aoife McDermott in our stunning studio with a wall of glass looking out at the sea and the beautiful Clare countryside. With long nights we get to see the sunrise and the sunset from the studio and enjoy winter from the comfort of our toasty warm space. We will breathe in the fresh winter air on a walk along the Cliffs of Moher and our local coastline. For those willing to brave the elements we will take a dip in the fresh waters of the mighty Atlantic on New Year’s Day. For more details on the schedule and pricing see below.


Yoga and Hiking

On two mornings we will take you for an invigorating walk. One of the days we will bring you down by the sea to breathe in the fresh air and watch the waves. On another morning we will take you along the Cliffs of Moher pathway (weather permitting), one of the most stunning walks in the world.




FoodMealtimes are a highlight of the retreat, with long decadent meals served by candlelight in our dining hall. The food is healthy, delicious and nutritious with delightful desserts to delight all your senses.





In between all this we will keep the fires burning, the candles lighting and invite you to make yourself at home. Put your feet up with a book. Take a nap. Have a massage. This is the perfect way to ring in the new year, you will leave feeling like a new you!




This retreat always books out quickly so don’t hesitate to book if you are considering joining. We hope to see in the New Year with you…

Drive along that road, with the golf course on your left. After 4 kms you will reach Liscannor Village. Continue driving through Liscannor Village. After another 3kms turn left, just before The Rock Shop (which is on the right side of the road). After 200 metres you will reach a crossroads, turn right.

Common Questions
What time is check-in?
Check-in is at 4pm for a weekend stay & 5pm for a longer stay..
My flight gets in earlier than the 4/5pm check in, can I come earlier?
We will be preparing the retreat centre at that time and if a group checked out that day your room will be not be ready if you are arriving very early. We recommend getting the taxi to drop off your bags and then taking you into Lahinch. We are isolated and there isn’t anywhere to get lunch but Lahinch has cafes, restaurants, shops and a lovely beach. Your taxi can arrange to collect you again later.
My flight arrives a day in advance - can I stay an extra night?
We don’t have guests staying earlier as the centre is not open before a retreat. There may also be a retreat still in progress.

We recommend staying in Lahinch which is only a few kms away and has walking access to hotels, hostels, B&B’s, shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants and a lovely long beach.

My flight leaves the next day - can I stay an extra night?
We don’t have guests staying an extra night as the centre is closed after a retreat. There may also be a retreat starting.

We recommend staying in Lahinch which is only a few kms away and has access to hotels, hostels, B&B’s, shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants and a lovely long beach within walking distance.

I arrive into Shannon Airport, what's the best way to get to you?
Please visit our Getting Here page for full details.
Will I be able to share a transfer from Shannon airport?
It will depend if there are others on the same flight. Due to GDPR regulations we are not in position to provide other guests’ contact details and organise this for you. If you are in a position where you have to pay for a taxi on your own on the way in, it is usually easier to get back to the airport as you can look into public transport or get a lift with another guest driving past the airport.
Is there Wifi?
We have wifi for guests in Reception House, which has a comfortable, communal lounge to read, relax and get online if you want to.
I'm coming on my own can you pair me to share?
We can pair you with someone of the same gender.
What do I need to bring?
We provide towels, hand soap, hair-driers and yoga equipment, please bring anything else you require.
I'm new to yoga, will the retreat suit me?
We get beginners all the time, and everyone is welcome.
I have a severe food allergy , can you accommodate me?
Yes we can, please can you let us know your severe food allergy upon booking.
Is alcohol served/allowed at the Retreat?
No, we are a dry facility but there are some wonderful pubs in the area that we can guide you to and we can also provide you with some taxi numbers.
I'd like to book a surf lesson/activity, should I do this before I arrive?
It is a good idea to make sure you can get a place. The details for recommended tour operators are on in the section The Area.
What kind of yoga do you teach?
All our teachers are extremely experienced but each teach their own style. Please see the individual retreats and teachers’ biographies for more specific details.
