A Paradise with surprising ease of access
The peacefulness and ancient feeling of The Burren have to be experienced to be believed.
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.
Yet it is easy to get here with a choice of airports, train, bus and reduced fare taxi pickups.
It takes 2 ½ hours to drive from Dublin, 90% on motorway.
The nearest bus and train goes to Gort which is 6 miles away and taxi from there costs €11.

2016 Summer retreats Ireland
These summer week-long retreats are a great way to be shown around the Burren hills and along the coast of the Wild Atlantic Way in the Burren region, as well as having the most experienced yoga and meditation teachers.
Our daily guided outings are led by Dave who founded the yoga centre in 1999, and he will personally take you to many very special places which are well off the beaten track.
This week could be a lovely way to start your 2 week vacation in Ireland, as you will meet other Irish people on the retreat who will give you tips and recommendations on what to see for your second week in Ireland.
Some people sign up for two separate week-long yoga retreats, and they get to experience two outstanding, very experienced yoga teachers, who may be quite different in their approach and also the type of yoga that they teach.
There are many photos of our guided outings at Summer Retreat Photos
2016 Summer yoga retreats suitable for all
Our summer retreats are suitable for complete beginners to yoga and meditation as well as for more experienced practitioners.
It is worth checking that you choose the summer retreat so that if you are older you may prefer a more gentle retreat… whereas if you are younger and reasonably fit you may prefer a stronger more challenging retreat.
