Tim left his home at Dublin when he was 18 years old to become a Krishna monk, which was initially a bit of a shock to his family but now everyone is happy. He trained at Bhaktivedanta Manor temple near London and then lived in the temple on Inish Rath Island for eight years. While in the temple, he studied Vedic philosophy from the ancient Sanskrit texts such as the Bhagavad Gita and the Bhagavat Purana, plus he learned kirtan-yoga and sacred chant music.

I liked the meditation and yoga sessions but most of all, I loved the food. The meals were amazing - all vegetarian and the standard was very high. The meditation sessions were very well run by Tim and quite relaxing. The space in which the meditation sessions were held was quite small so we expanded into the next room to make sure everyone fit. The facilities were fine - nothing extravagant and the shared shower, although it looked quite old, was actually quite nice. The dining room was a bit small for the amount of people on the retreat also. The shambala room for the yoga was lovely with all the windows and the light.

"Detox Retreat - Highly recommend "
I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone who is in need of a break. I went on my own & I am very glad I did. From the minute I walked through the door I felt instantly relaxed and calm. The yoga & Meditation was great. Met some lovely people and will definitely be back again at some stage in the near future. Big thank you to Tim and his team.

The food on this vegetarian detox week-end prepared by Carmen was fantastic. T' ai Chi sessions by Frances Mc Hugh and Yoga by Lucy (not on drop down menu) was excellent. I liked Tim's chanting and harmonium playing and the guided walk through the woods. The people on the week-end were great. In terms of cost it was also excellent value for money. The facilities as you would expect given the cost are basic but impeccably clean.
