Special New Year Retreat

We run this special retreat every year since 1999

 Special New Year Retreat

On our Special New Year Retreat, be guided to identify any negative things that may be holding you back in life.

And also to clarify new positive things to bring into your life.

And to bring all this together in our special fire ceremony on New Year’s eve.

The Burren Yoga Retreat was the 1st retreat centre in Ireland to bring together these wonderful practices to bring in the New Year to help you let go what does not serve you, and also to help plant the seeds to bring in positive supportive energies into your life. 

Since then some other retreats have tried to copy these practices in some form or other.

The founder of the Burren Yoga and Meditation Retreat Dave Brocklebank designed and built the yoga centre in 1999 with the motivation to provide the best yoga and meditation teaching within a quality retreat environment in the most 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.


Over 20 hours of yoga and meditation classes on our Special New Year Retreat

Your Yoga & Meditation teacher Margarida Tree has been teaching for over 28 years and has lovely positive support energies.  

You will feel her warmth straight away, and she will support you throughout the week.

We will have daily guided into the Burren hills and by the sea each day.  

Or you may prefer to take some time out and put your feet up  at the new retreat centre.

Spa Breaks 2022

The perfect way to bring in the New Year in a very positive environment with like-minded people.

90% of our guests come on their own, and this is a lovely way to make new friends. 

The warmth and friendliness of the Burren Yoga Retreat is one of the aspects that sets us apart from other retreat centres.

We have daily guided outings and these outings are a lovely way to have fun and get to know the other guests on the retreat.

Each day is a lovely combination of yoga and meditation  classes, guided outings, the best vegetarian food for whoch we are famous, and a lovely warm relaxed atmosphere in the ‘state of the art’ retreat centre.

 The perfect new year retreat

Rooted within the raw beauty of The Burren UNESCO Global Geopark’s renowned lunar landscape, The Burren Yoga Retreat is nestled within spectacularly shaped limestone hills that plunge down into the Atlantic Ocean on the west coast of Ireland. 

Our daily guided adventures into Nature with an experienced guide are an important part of the overall package and gives you the opportunity to see one of the most beautiful areas in Ireland with a very experienced guide.

This is a lovely way to bring in the New Year with time spent in Nature and with like-minded people.
