Visit the Cliffs of Moher while on retreat at the Burren Yoga Retreat centre.
The best way to see the Cliffs of Moher is by boat on our retreats during the summer.
The best way to see the Cliffs of Moher, is by boat from Dolin. This is the best way to see the birdlife on the Cliffs of Moher, and also to appreciate their size when you are looking up at the cliffs.
The boat trip leaves from Doolin and takes about 20 minutes to reach the Cliffs of Moher.
The boat usually spends about 20 minutes cruising close to the Cliffs and this is the best time to take photographs.
And then 20 minutes to return to Doolin.
It is always worth checking out independent reviews before booking any retreats in Ireland.
The Burren Yoga and Meditation Retreat was awarded the Tripadvisor Award of Excellence for the past 10 years in a row.
These retreats are suitable for complete beginners to yoga, for all ages, all levels of fitness.
Many people come here who are just curious about yoga and meditation and more interested in the outings in the Burren and the amazing vegetarian food.
There is a sense of fun and adventure on our boat trip to the Cliffs of Moher. Our retreats have a full timetable of activities during the day, and these include hill walks in the Burren hills, walks by the sea, swimming in the sea and our nearby lake and many other organised outings. The adventure of seeing the Cliffs of Moher Burren Yoga Retreat from the boat adds a lovely feeling of being out on the ocean and having fun with a group of like-minded people.
There is a sense of freedom and relaxation about not having to decide what to do, or where to go, and simply allow each day to unfold and be guided to some very special places in the Burren.
The birdlife on the Cliffs of Moher is best during June. There are plenty of puffins, kittiwakes and fulmars.
The one bird that many people love seeing are the puffins with their remarkable ability for diving and swimming under water.
There are different sized boats that offer this trip to see the Cliffs of Moher. When we visit the Cliffs of Moher Burren Yoga Retreat, we try to book one of the smaller boats which can closer to the cliffs where you can hear as well as see the birds.
The Cliffs of Moher is one of the most visited destinations in Ireland, and they get close to a million visitors each year.
Sometimes we go to the visitor centre at the Cliffs of Moher on our retreats. However, there can be many tour buses and huge numbers of people going to the visitor centre.
After our usual outings in the Burren hills and by the sea, this can be a shock to be surrounded by so many tourists.
While on our retreats, we normally go to places away from the usual tourist spots, and this is the best way to appreciate the beauty of The Burren, and also to appreciate the silence.
The views to the faraway horizons bring a lovely feeling of freedom and spaciousness. And the ancient feeling of the Burren hills has a very mystical feeling.
This is another reason why the best way to see the Cliffs of Moher is by boat.
Leave behind the external world, and allow the magic of The Burren Yoga Retreat adventures to bring a ‘Smile to your heart’
The guided adventures into Nature by the founder of the yoga centre Dave Brocklebank are an important part of the overall package and give you the opportunity to see one of the most beautiful areas in Ireland with a very experienced guide.
The Burren is an area of unspoilt beauty on the west coast of Ireland with spectacular shaped limestone hills which plunge down into the Atlantic ocean. The Burren was awarded Geopark status by UNESCO in 2011.
