One of the 1st Retreat Centres Ireland

 Retreat Centres Ireland

The Burren Yoga and Meditation Retreat was founded in 1999 by yoga and meditation teacher Dave Brocklebank.

Dave’s vision was to provide a retreat centre in Ireland suitable for all ages and all levels of fitness.

Dave has always ensured that the Burren Yoga Retreat Centre was suitable for beginners and everybody is made feel welcome and at home away from home.

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.

The Burren Retreat Centres Ireland include

This quality Burren retreat centre has some important aspects that make it stand out from many other retreat centres in Ireland.

First and foremost, all the weekend and week-long retreats are managed and overseen by the founder of the Burren Yoga and Meditation Retreat Dave Brocklebank.

Dave designed and built the yoga centre in 1999 with the motivation to provide the best yoga and meditation teaching within a quality retreat package which
included guided outings into Nature, the best of vegetarian food, small groups of 16 people or less, and running these retreats in a quality and enjoyable way.

In 2021 the yoga retreat centre was expanded to 3 times the size of the original centre to provide en-suite bedrooms, dedicated massage therapy rooms, and a new glass-walled yoga studio with stunning views over the Burren hills.

Dave has been practising meditation since 1978 and yoga since 1988, and has hand-picked this team of 16 highly trained and very inspiring yoga and meditation teachers using his knowledge and experience in selecting the best teachers.

 Guided outings retreat centres Ireland

The atmosphere at the Burren Yoga Retreat is very relaxed, warm and friendly.  

Many people come on their own, and it is a very welcoming and positive environment, at one of the best retreat centres in Ireland.

Guests come here for many different reasons, and sometimes to get away from a stressful life situation.

The Burren Yoga Retreat is a retreat where you can decide which aspects you prefer.

You may choose whether to chat and socialise with the others on the retreat, or whether to take time on your own to either chill out at the centre, or to explore the area.

A place where you can come at any time of the year to relax and rejuvenate and just Be yourself.

There is a lovely friendly fun atmosphere on our guided outings, and this can be a great way to spend time in Nature which is like ‘food for the soul’.

Many people make very good connections with others on the retreat, and it is a lovely way to make new friends.
