Join us for a weekend of contrasts - nourishing classes and bracing winter walks, morning meditation and refreshing sea-swims.

 

yoga studio

 

Enjoy the beautiful early winter  light, saluting the season while surrounded by nature. Lean into the season and do what the weather outside is showing us – move in the light, and embrace the darkness with rest and reflection. Tucking into hearty, nutritious food that magically appears just when you need it – after a replenishing, deeply satisfying yoga practice.

 

Retreat Ireland

 

We run our residential retreats with a simple aim – to soothe your body, mind and soul. Everything that’s included, from our newly built studio with stunning views across Clare’s rolling hills, to our restored farmhouse accommodation that oozes comfort and a feeling of sanctuary, to our silent cliff-top walks and our own organic produce, have been chosen by us with this aim in mind.

 

The result, 3 days of yoga, meditation, breathwork, sound therapy and Yoga Nidra that will help you explore and deepen your own practice under the expertise of our teachers. 3 days of nutritious (and frankly, delicious) food to recharge your body and leave you feeling like your best self. 3 days that you can start off with a refreshing dip in the sea and end by curling up in front of a log fire. The only downside of this escape is that it’s pretty hard come back from.

 Directions from Lahinch:

Eircode for SatNav: V95 A499

We are 7kms from Lahinch driving straight out on the road to the Cliffs of Moher. As you enter Lahinch follow the signs for the Cliffs of Moher and Liscannor (it’s a right turn before you come into the main street of the village).

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. Continue up the road for approximately 750metres, we are the third property on the left, you will drive up a long driveway and we will be waiting for you there!

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.
