"Outstanding yoga and meditation retreat"
I highly recommend a visit to The Burren Yoga retreat in Co Galway. Dave’s hospitality was wonderful, nothing was too much trouble and his knowledge and experience on our guided walks in the wild flower meadows, hill walks and beach was so informative. Grainne’s teaching of meditation and yoga was extremely high quality and she took the time to explain everything. She literally has a voice like melted chocolate and I now have the skills to develop my own practice at home. Neil’s vegetarian cooking was delicious. We all went home with some of his recipes his food was that good. And the group of girls I met on our retreat shared by birthday and made the whole experience so memorable. I can not recommend the place and experience highly enough.

"Lovely place to unwind and refresh "
The retreat was everything I could have hoped for. The accommodation was comfortable, welcoming and the food was amazing. The yoga instruction was pitched perfectly for beginners as well as for the more experienced. The outings were varied, well organised, and the local knowledge that Dave has means that you visit places you would not find on your own.
