The Burren on the West coast of Ireland.

The Burren Yoga Retreat is committed to running our luxury health and wellness retreats in an environmentally sensitive way, ensuring that the environment of the Burren Geopark and our community are sustainably maintained.

 The Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark

In 2011 the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher was awarded Global Geopark status by UNESCO.

The Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark is a spectacular area on the West coast of Ireland and is about 530 square kilometers.

The area consists of spectacularly shaped limestone hills that plunge into the Atlantic ocean.

The limestone hills are ideal for hill walking and botanists from all over the world come here for the unusual range of wildflowers.

The Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark represent a vibrant and successful destination-wide partnership between the private sector, local villagers, and municipal authorities working together to safeguard one of Ireland’s most beautiful natural landscapes.

The project demonstrates the power of well-planned and managed tourism to improve local livelihoods, provide a high-quality visitor experience and promote conservation. – National Geographic, World Legacy Awards.

 Burren Yoga Retreat

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

Dave was drawn to The Burren as the ideal place to spend time in Nature on a yoga retreat.

Dave believes that spending time in Nature is like food for the soul, and has always been interested in protecting the environment and running the yoga retreats in a very environmentally friendly way.

Dave came across the BEN in 2011 shortly after it was formed and was so impressed as their goals and principles closely aligned with his own.

Although the Burren Yoga Retreat had always been following the principles of being eco-friendly, Dave learned through the BEN training that he needed to let our guests know about our efforts and aspirations in this area of protecting the environment.


 Guided Outings

Ireland yoga holiday

Dave’s vision for the Burren Yoga Retreat was to spend a lot of time in Nature.

To go on hill walks, walks by the sea, sea swimming, visiting some of the many special places in the Burren… and allowing Nature to weave her magic.

These Luxury Health and Wellness retreats are all about letting go of the external pressures of life and spending time in a very positive environment where each person can learn new skills to improve their health and wellbeing and to bring these practices back home with them.

We introduce the Leave No Trace code to our guests and outline the importance of looking after our fragile environment.

We car share on all of our outings to minimise carbon emissions as well as reduce the number of vehicles in the Burren.

All our outings are led by an experienced guide who gives a background of The Burren and an understanding of the unique environment in which we are privileged to be.
