September 2-11, 2022
Submerged in a deep glacial valley at the heart of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way,
‘Connemara’ is the perfect base for those wishing to participate
in a yoga, wellness or meditation retreat in Ireland.
Immersed in nature and the wilderness of County Galway and County Mayo, the resort is a hidden gem, surrounded by beautiful mountains and lakes. Explore the vast forest, scattered with meandering and fast flowing streams, that run down from the mountain top. Visit nearby waterfalls and lakes, which are steeped in history. Local blue flag beaches are gloriously secluded, calm, quiet and peaceful, perfect for long strolls along the impressive coastline. The Connemara resort offers 4 star hotel accommodations with restaurant and bar, along with excellent yoga and spa facilities
The Wellness Studio is adjacent to the Spa. Built in 2015, it was specially designed to meet the growing demand to host yoga, meditation and wellness retreats. The bright and airy space is filled with light and boasts breathtaking views of the Mweelrea mountain range. The Zen studio fits up to 30 yoga mats comfortably and includes yoga mats, blocks and straps.
Food is central to the Connemara Resort experience and the cornerstone of any great retreat. With nutritious, hearty and delicious food, sourced from local farmers and fishermen, the menu draws it’s inspiration from both the Irish land and sea.
Breakfast and dinner is included in the retreat package, while you can decide whether to enjoy lunch at the resort or in the local villages and towns.
Catering for vegetarian, vegan, celiac menus is not a problem or if guest specify medical conditions we can adapt the menu to suit you, so long as we have prior notice.
