 Learn Mindfulness Meditation in Ireland

Early purple orchid Burren

Mindfulness retreat Ireland to take time away from your busy life.

Learn Mindfulness meditation with gifted teachers in a very special environment.

One of the best places to learn mindfulness meditation is on a weekend or week-long retreat away from the usual everyday environment.

Dave who founded the Burren Yoga and Meditation Retreat has handpicked the best mindfulness meditation teachers to teach on the retreats.

These mindfulness retreats are suitable for complete beginners, and you will be skillfully guided to learn the techniques, and also to put them into practice each day while you are here.

You will also be empowered and encouraged to take these practices home with you.  The aim of the retreat is that you will continue the mindfulness meditation each day on your own when you return home.

What better place to learn meditation than the Burren Yoga and Meditation Retreat which is located in the legendary landscape of The Burren on the West coast of Ireland.

 Mindfulness Ireland Retreat


During your stay at the Burren Yoga and Meditation Retreat Centre, we provide organised outings into the Burren hills and by the sea.

Spending time in Nature is like ‘food for the soul’.

A large amount of our day is spent in the magical countryside of the Burren.

Each day begins with mindfulness meditation, and you will be encouraged to bring this mindfulness with you throughout the day.

All classes, meals and outings are optional, and it is perfectly fine if you would like to spend some or more time just by yourself.

Our vegetarian food is of the highest standards, and Dave hand-picks very talented chefs to prepare our food with fresh locally sourced organic ingredients and uses creative ways to prepare our famous vegetarian food.

We close off each day with mindfulness meditation followed by Yoga Nidra deep relaxation.

Part of the vision when founding The Burren Yoga and Meditation Centre was to ensure our retreats would be suitable for complete beginners to meditation and yoga as well as for experienced practitioners.

Many people come here who are just curious about yoga and mindfulness meditation and more interested in the outings in the Burren and the amazing vegetarian food.

Many people come on their own as well as with friends or partners.

Our recipe is Simplicity delivered with authenticity, passion, and love.

Some people think of mindfulness meditation retreats as being austere.

However, the philosophy of the Burren Yoga and Meditation Centre believes that if we learn yoga and meditation in a very comfortable and enjoyable environment, that we are more likely to bring these practices home with us so that we can practice each day after the retreat.

The meditation and other practices to produce clearer states of consciousness is central. 

In order to support this, we don’t take alcohol or anything else that could cloud our awareness during your time here.  This includes when we have lunch at local places during our outings.

We are famous for the quality of our food, and the locally grown fresh organic ingredients which are balanced in a satvic way help us to feel great and to support our digestive and mental wellbeing. 

In keeping with our ethos, the new centre has been designed with super sound proofed rooms where you are guaranteed silence for a very restful sleep.  Black out blinds, a choice of two types of pillows, hotel quality mattresses, and Egyptian cotton bedlinen are just part of the importance placed on getting a good night’s sleep.

Our breaks offer complete freedom from Digital devices.  

Phones are turned off (or airplane mode), internet, news and other distractions are left behind, and the resulting freedom is beneficial for a more light hearted feeling and ability to be in the present moment.
