Eco Yoga Retreats
The award winning Burren Yoga Retreats are very well established eco yoga retreats with a lovely combination of time spent in Nature and the best of yoga and meditation instruction.
The centre was founded by yoga teacher Dave Brocklebank in 1999, who had the vision to build a comfortable yoga centre in one of the most spectacular and special places in Ireland…. The Burren.
The Burren Geopark is an area of unspoilt beauty consisting of spectacular shaped limestone hills which plunge down into the Atlantic ocean.
Dave has specially hand-picked 15 of the best yoga and meditation teachers to teach on these quality yoga retreats.
We only take 15 people on our retreats so that everybody gets very good individual attention.
Dave’s vision was to spend a lot of time in Nature on these eco retreats, as this compliments the yoga and meditation practice, and spending time in Nature is like “Food for the Soul”.

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.
