Walking in the Burren hills
It is advised to bring good walking boots and rain gear with you, as the weather on the west coast of Ireland is very changable.
However, it is one of the best places for walking in Ireland.
The main reason is that the area is made up of limestone hills.
And limestone hills have cracks and gaps and crevices that run deep down into the rock making it very porous.
And if it has been raining heavily, the minute it stops, there is no rain left on the ground and it is completely dry with good grip for hill walking.
Whereas if you go to Connemara, you often have to walk through a bog and are drenched before you start to ascend the hill.
In the Burren there are no midges because it is so dry, the weather is mild throughout the year, although we do get quite a bit of wind. And it is just spectacular for views from the hills, with little or no people here.
We have yoga weekends all year round, and each course starts Friday evening at 7pm with dinner and finishes on Sunday about 2 pm after lunch.
The weekend courses for the next few months can be seen at Calendar of Yoga Retreats

Meet like minded people
Most people come to our courses on their own and are beginners to yoga. It is very easy to meet other people on the courses, especially during the organized outdoor activities each day.
