The wellbeing and safety of our guests and staff is our top priority.
We have hired new staff in order to increase and improve our already very high standards in cleanliness and sanitisation.
We are following all the Government’s and Failte Ireland’s recommendations for hotels and guesthouses and we stay up to date with their guidelines.
Most Covid experts advocate fresh air, and most businesses are opening windows as much as possible.
We have gone above and beyond these recommendations by investing over €30,000 on 3 very large air ventilation systems in the new centre.
We are proud to be one of the first retreat centres in the world to provide this leading edge level of ventilation to help provide the safest environment possible.
We have also invested in safety glass screens in our new spacious dining room.
Our ventilation system sucks out stale air, and brings in fresh air on a continious 24/7 basis.
The combination of this spacious dining room, safety screens and ventilation is to provide a very safe dining experience.
The new centre is 3 times the size of the older centre and yet we are keeping the maximum number of guests to 16, so everybody has 3 times the amount of space.
We have a very strictly controlled environment.
Each guest must agree to our Covid policies to ensure we maintain a safe environment.
Many yoga studios in our cities and towns can have 50 or more new people coming in and out for classes each day, and we want to reassure you that we are in no way similar to these studios.
We are very different to hotels which often have over 100 guests staying at any one time, and many of them coming and going each day.
Yet we conform to all the regulations and recommendations laid down for hotels and guest houses.
In Ireland Face Masks are required at all times in hotels and guest houses unless you are seated at the dining tables or in your room.
In line with these Government Guidelines you must wear a mask at all times when you are moving about the yoga centre, and may only take off your mask while on your yoga mat, while eating at the tables in the dining room, or while you are in your bedroom.
No face masks are required while outdoors, and much of our day is spent walking in the Burren hills and by the sea, and simply relaxing in Nature.
All our guests and staff must ensure that in the past 14 days before arriving

We have taken a lot of care as well as investment to ensure that we provide a very safe environment.
We should remember that by following carefully the recommended protocols, that we ensure each other’s safety.
None of this is rocket science, and above all else the atmosphere is very friendly, relaxed, sociable and great fun.
We encourage everybody to have a great time, in a mindful way to ensure the safety of us all.
