    Methods of payment

    You can select whichever method of payment best suits your needs.

    Easiest and most flexible method

    If you live within Southern Ireland, the easiest and most flexible method is to book using credit card and pay the retreat fee when you arrive.

    If you live outside southern Ireland, please see next section “Alternative methods of payment”.

    If you prefer to book with a debit card, we debit your card for 1/3 the retreat fee when you book (+€5 weekend booking fee or €10 week), and you pay the remaining 2/3 when you get to the centre.

    Alternative methods of payment

    You may book a retreat by paying 1/3 of the retreat fee at the time of booking, and the remainder 1 month before the retreat start date. Or you may pay the full retreat fee at the time of booking.

    • bank transfer
    • paypal
    • credit card, debit card or laser
    • cheque or postal order
    • last minute payment when you arrive with postal order or credit card

    The cheapest and easiest method is to use the company TransferWise to make the bank transfer. The process is easy to use, and their fees are much lower than the banks.

    When you fill in your booking form, and select the payment type on your booking form as ‘bank transfer’, I will email you our bank details and a link to TransferWise

    Handling charges and implications of alternative methods of payment

    Please note that these methods of payments may only be used when you book a retreat that is at least 2 weeks away.

    Bank Transfer

    If travelling from overseas, you pay the retreat fee using TransferWise. They do charge a small fee, but it is much less than the banks, and the process is much easier.

    When you book your retreat, you need to transfer the 1/3 of the retreat fee to the Burren Yoga and Meditation Centre bank account.  And the remainder 1 month before the start date.
