A beautiful nation rife with historic appeal, natural wonders, and rich cultural heritage, Ireland is a top destination among global and domestic travelers alike. There are plenty of fantastic places to visit, from bustling city centers to secluded ruins, and those who spend time on the Emerald Isle often find themselves returning for ever-more immersive encounters with the lovely nation. Sure, major cities and iconic attractions are great to tour, but where can one tap into the true essence that makes Ireland such an authentically unique venue for experience and exploration?
Finding a Genuine Experience of Ireland
Those looking to get out into the breathtaking country and have an unequivocally authentic stay will be delighted to find the Burren Yoga and Meditation Centre nestled on the spectacular west coast of Ireland. Founded by longtime local Dave Brocklebank, the facility provides a peaceful venue for introspection and relaxation set against the backdrop of verdant hills and quiet countryside. Guests are invited to enjoy the beautiful surroundings while engaging in mindful practices that will only increase your awareness and appreciation of the lovely area.
More than just a site for practicing yoga and meditation, the Burren Yoga Centre offers fully inclusive year-round yoga retreat holidays geared towards granting you a fully immersive experience of The Burren region. Catering to any level of physical fitness or yoga experience, men and women of all ages are led on guided tours of the area, including boat trips to the renowned Cliffs of Moher, and are encouraged to take part in outdoor activities like surfing, kayaking, and nature walks among the limestone hills and shoreline. Groups are kept small (15 people or less) so everyone is guaranteed a personal experience in one of Irelands most spectacular natural areas. Back at the facility and accommodations, carefully selected yoga and meditation teachers lead classes and aid visitors in their yoga and meditation practices with specialized individual attention.
A Friendly and Relaxed Atmosphere
The yoga retreat holidays include room and board in comfortable accommodations at the Burren Yoga Centre facility, adding to the value of these fully-inclusive packages. Relaxation is a highlight of spending time at Burren Yoga, and guests are invited to "experience the silence".
"Spending time on the west coast of Ireland is like stepping back 40 years in time, and the friendliness and easy going nature of the people makes one feel at home straight away."
-Dave Brocklebank, Founder of Burren Yoga
Even healthy home-cooked meals are included in the package, prepared specially by a famous local chef who caters to all dietary requirements.
The Burren Yoga retreat holidays are a fantastic way to get a glimpse of an authentic side of Ireland you won't be able to find in popular tour guides or brochures. Located a scenic 2 Ż hour drive from Dublin, the retreat is easily accessible by car and is sure to provide a peaceful haven of enlightenment where you'll make memories to last a lifetime!
