includes Lambay boat transfers, accommodation, all meals, regular refreshments, workshops and sessions, materials.

A four-day / three-night yoga and nutritional retreat for just 10-12 people on the private and mystery-shrouded island of Lambay, conveniently located within easy access of Dublin International Airport.  The island is considered by many to be “hallowed ground” or, for the less spiritual, certainly a place of exceptional grounding qualities.


Both scientists and spiritualists attribute this partly to the island’s history as an ancient, 250 million year old volcano, situated close to one of the world's major Ley lines.  Volcanic soil is known to contain very high concentrations of minerals and nutrients such as phosphates, nitrates, potassium and calcium; while Ley lines are considered to be surrounded by strong energy fields. 


Whatever the cause, our bodies seem to respond to this enriching earth as though to a magnet, and visitors to Lambay all speak of the unique feel of the island, the way in which it connects you to your surroundings, the ground beneath your feet and the people around you.

Our yogi says:

"Surrounded by nature and a sense of profound peace, Lambay is the perfect place to press pause on our busy lives and reconnect with ourselves. I knew for this reason it would also make an ideal spot for a yoga retreat; yoga is a fantastic journey of self-discovery and what better place to do it than encapsulated by such raw, natural beauty."

Lambay has inspired us to host seasonal yoga and wellness retreats; a chance to sweep away the cobwebs in Spring or build your strength in the Autumn, and find a renewed energy and rejuvenation.
