Weekend Retreats in Co. Kerry

Kenmare

We have been returning to Kenmare for almost 6 years now, this spot is a  favourite among so many of our guests that they return with us year after year! This charming & peaceful private residence is located just 10 minutes drive outside of Kenmare, the heritage town known as the Jewel of the Ring of Kerry.  Located at the edge of a silver birch woods with views of the Ballygriffin valley and surrounding countryside lies this our stunning venue. A custom built retreat centre, our unique yoga space will be held in the bright & airy artists studio. As nod to the owners passion you will find original artwork in most rooms of the house.

Complete with a soothing stream running through the grounds and balconies with beautiful views, guests will be able to take quiet walks through the private woods or find solitary places to sit and simply enjoy the nature around us. During the weekend you will have the opportunity to visit Kenmare town and pier or take a short hike up Killaha mountain which offers supreme views of Kenmare town and bay. 

Location 2 – Killorglin

This is our newest retreat location and we are very excited to be collaborating with Aloha House Retreat centre in Killorglin to bring you our first retreat here in October 2021.

This gorgeous retreat centre is beautifully located overlooking the beautiful River Laune and the world famous McGillycuddy Reeks mountain range.

Warm & welcoming,  we will enjoy our daily yoga practices in the bright studio overlooking beautiful gardens. In between classes you can take in the stunning views while relaxing in the upstairs sunroom.

On this retreat, we will be in for a culinary treat as Brian from Aloha House will nourish us throughout brunches and Friday evening dinner PLUS our very own Piotr will delight us with a special three  course meal on the Saturday evening.

During the weekend you can explore the surrounding area, take a walk or a hike or simply enjoy the cosy homey atmosphere that invites you to rest deeply.

Classes

Classes will be led by Claire Dunniece to suit all levels and physical abilities therefore no experience is needed in yoga or meditation for you to join the retreat.  Our focus on these weekends is learning how to slow down and cultivate an appreciation for true deep rest. The practices are also designed to honour the season at each retreat so we can live more in tune with nature.

Food & Nourishment

We believe in sharing seasonal creative and nutritious vegetarian cuisine. All meals are varied and freshly prepared on site by Piotr Walkowski. Piotr curates each menu with his expertise to perfectly complement Claire's teachings and reflect a theme of balance, nurture and rejuvenation.  Mealtimes are just as much a part of the retreat experience as our yoga classes.

Carnivores: do not be fearful! we will show you that vegetarian food can be so delicious, you won’t even miss your meat!

We are happy to cater for any dietary needs or special requests, please let us know when booking.

There are a limited number of rooms available at each location therefore the retreat price is based on shared twin bedrooms. For your comfort all bedrooms are en-suite.

The retreat environment is one of community with a friendly group atmosphere so guests who are joining by themselves should not feel apprehensive.

There will also be ample opportunity for individual time, private walks, silence etc so those who are coming for self reflection will not be disappointed.

Group size
