Accommodation

Check-in Time:
14:30

Lake Isle Retreats has private single rooms, twin rooms, and triple rooms. You can either book a room privately for yourself, share a private room with a friend or two, or share a room with others on the same retreat. They can cater for between five and thirteen guests.

Single rooms available on all retreats. Also, on some retreats accommodation may be shared with other attendees. If you're not used to this, don't worry! This is part of the retreat experience and helps to create a large family atmosphere.

Also, you won't be spending so much time in your room anyhow - the retreat is so packed with events, exotic experiences, and friendly interactions, that you hit the pillow tired at night, and then the next morning you jump out of bed and are out walking or jogging through the countryside by the shores of Upper Lough Erne, hearing the morning chorus of the birds.

Saturday

At 6.35 a.m., there is an option to take a boat service over to the island (across 300 meters of lake water) to visit the temple. Although an optional activity (due to the early morning rising), Lake Isle Retreats recommends you join in this fascinating cultural experience. The temple's first programme is at 4.30 a.m. every morning, so this the second half of the morning programme.

From 7 a.m., there is the attendance of the "Greeting of the Deities". This ceremony begins with some spiritual music arranged by George Harrison (of the Beatles) in 1970 - George played the harmonium for the recording. The programme continues with some chanting music and an arati - aratis are ancient ceremonies that have taken place in Hindu and Buddhist temples for millennia.

Afterward, there is a talk on Bhagavad Gita, a Sanskrit philosophical text. Guests are welcome to stay for as long as they like, or may relax elsewhere on the island, as they wish. You depart from the talk early.

Food

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and complimentary herbal teas every day will be provided during your stay. All food is vegetarian and extremely tasty, cooked with love by vegan chef Carmen Padilla Quiel. Meals are prepared fresh on the day.

Everything is vegetarian - no meat, fish, or eggs. Most preparations are vegan (dairy-free). The food is a combination of Indian vegetarian (e.g. samosas, curries, basmati rice, etc, etc.) and "western" vegetarian (e.g. pizza, salads, pasta, soups, etc). Lake Isle Retreats caters to any special diets for allergies and intolerances.

In case you're a yogi, Vaishnava or someone familiar with a "sattvic" diet, Lake Isle Retreats doesn't use the following ingredients: onions, garlic, mushrooms, vinegar, and alcohol. In Ayurveda, these ingredients may be prescribed for medicinal or other uses, but are not generally consumed by Hatha or Bhakti yogis. If that sounds "restrictive" then you might find you have a lot to learn about non-European cookery!

Lake Isle Retreats has a polytunnel and a vegetable garden for growing our food. During the growing season, they use their own organic potatoes, carrots, courgettes, peppers, corns, tomatoes, beetroots, cucumbers, French beans, and some herbs in preparing the dishes.

The following meals are included:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner
  • Drinks

The following drinks are included:

  • Tea

The following dietary requirement(s) are served and/or catered for:

  • Vegetarian
  • Organic
  • Other dietary requirements on request
If you have special dietary requirements it's a good idea to communicate it to the organiser when making a reservation

Things to do (optional)

You could pre-book holistic therapies during your stay. The cost of therapy is 30 or 35 GBP for a 50-minute therapy. The therapists are fully-qualified individuals who not only are good at massaging and healing people - they also love to do it! You are free to ask the therapist for a variety of therapies in the same session, for example: try an Indian head massage for half of the session and a foot massage for the second half.
