Ireland Yoga Retreat
Time & Location
About the Event
Your retreat week will be at the award winning Ballymaloe House. Condé Nast Traveller Magazine has acknowledged Ballymaloe House on their Gold List, and it was the only Irish venue on this prestigious list of the World’s top 100 hotels. The McKenna Guide 2018 listed Ballymaloe House as one of Ireland’s 100 Best Restaurants.
Accommodation at Ballymaloe House is simple and elegant. Each room has a private bathroom (some with bathtubs!) where you will be treated to fresh bath salts for a nice soak. All accommodations have a calm and relaxing feel. There are paintings and drawings by Irish modern artists such as Pat Scott, Michael Farrell, Louis Le Brocquy and Norah McGuinness throughout the house as well as examples of Irish studio pottery.
Enjoy afternoon tea in the drawing room by the fire or in the conservatory filled with scented geraniums and winter jasmine looking out onto our gardens and river. Benches are dotted throughout the gardens for you to sit in summer and read or listen to the sounds of the farm. In winter the drawing room is warm and peaceful-the perfect place to relax after a long walk by the sea and look out at the wild Irish sky.
Yoga classes will be onsite at the “Grainstore” – originally built in the 17th century, but converted to host groups and events (including local yoga workshops). Many of our meals will be catered for us here at the Grainstore, plus we’ve been invited to a special dinner at Ballymaloe House.
During our week, we’ll explore the surrounding area and take a full day trip to the City of Cork which will include dinner with a local chef.
