With panoramic sea views and high-end, luxury accommodation, The Cliffs of Moher Retreat is the dream location for what we have been striving to achieve for many years.

During retreat, you will stay at Moher Lodge Farmhouse, situated right by the Cliffs of Moher. It has been a landmark building on the headland for over two hundred years. Recently refurbished, the property offers a modern version of what these buildings looked like in their prime. With old stone walls and arches featured throughout, the two main buildings set around a beautiful courtyard, form the Cliffs of Moher Retreat.

Lahinch has one of the most famous and challenging links courses in the country, probably the world. Set on immaculately preserved sand banks, there are stunning views of the Atlantic and the surrounding countryside. With advance notice we can book you a round for this course but if you'd still like to golf but on something a bit easier you can try the Castle Course which is situated behind the Links Course. You will need to bring your own clubs.
The Burren is one of Europes most unique Landscapes, where the views heal your mind and soul. With beautiful views and fields made of angular slabs of karst rock its like a lunar landscape. With extremely rare plants, flowers and animals and a history to rival any fairytale a walk in Burren is an experience of a lifetime. Many people drive through the grassy roads of the Burren, but taking the time to get right out into it, to feel it, is something we strongly recommend. We can help to arrange a hike during your yoga holiday UK for you but we recommend giving advance notice if you are planning to hike.
The area is rich in music and has something for everyone. Doolin, a 15 minute drive away is the birthplace of traditional Irish Music and people from all over the world come here to listen, play and record. Some of the greatest trad players of our time got their start in Co.Clare and neighbouring Miltown Malbay hosts the Willie Clancy, week long music festival each year. There are trad sessions daily and no trip to Clare is complete without experiencing one of these. Lahinch is also home to some new and original music, and Kennys White Horse Sessions, across the street from the Lodge, is setting the pace with a continually impressive line for such a small quiet seaside village.
Clare has some of the best surfing spots in Ireland. There is a good beach break in Lahinch that is perfect for beginners. There are also various reef breaks running off Liscannor Bay and the famous breaks at Doughmor and Spanish Point. Clare is also home to the famous Aileens wave, so huge and mighty it is vying for the position as one of the worlds biggest.
The beach break in Lahinch is the perfect place to learn or even hone your skills. With a consistent swell the waves are surfable most of the year. With waters that dont get too cold thanks to the Gulf Stream, surfing has never been as accessible or fun as it is in Clare. We operate in conjunction with Bens Surf Clinic, Irelands first ISA hardboard approved surf school in Ireland. Ben and his team offer lessons for every level and classroom sessions are conducted in the comfort of your own living room at the Lodge.
We have our own treatment room and are proud to offer you 3 treatments with our fantastic team of therapists: Reiki, Massage and Kinesiology. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Michelle first came across the wonderful healing powers of Reiki when she was living in Thailand. She is attuned to level II in the Tera Mai lineage. Sessions last 60 minutes.
