Wild Atlantic Way Yoga is a traditional Irish farmhouse. While immersing yourself in your yoga practice, you will be looking out at the Atlantic Ocean while enjoying the intimate setting. The farmhouse was brought back to life at the turn of this century, along with retaining the original features; the double height, underfloor heating, and yoga studio was added.

There are four double or twin bedrooms and two bathrooms which the majority of guests will be sharing. Most people come on their own and you will be allocated a room with a person of similar age and same sex. Private rooms are subject to availability. You will enjoy the experience of a traditional Irish farmhouse with beautiful views of the famous Old Head and of course, the Atlantic Ocean.

You will arrive on Friday at 16:00, just in time for a strong Vinyasa class after sunset. You will end the day with a soothing Restorative yoga practice, creating that dream-like high after savasana, which must be felt to be believed.

For the rest of the weekend, you will enjoy mouthwatering vegetarian meals, two sunrise yoga practices, and an evening yoga class. You will practice pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation every morning. The afternoon is free for you to explore and unwind in the stunning setting of The Wild Atlantic Way Yoga.

  • Aisling Milne

    Aisling’s passion for yoga started in 2005. After completing her 200-hour yoga teacher training with The Yoga Room Dublin, she continued her yoga studies in New York with Paula Lynch Liberis. It was a time of intense education, broadening her studies to encompass kids yoga, prenatal yoga, yoga for those with eating disorders, and yoga for older adults. That, along with her training as a nurse, have given her a unique perspective and skill set when it comes to teaching yoga.
