Our beautiful former Victorian farm is nestled amidst beautiful rolling hills and forestry in South Wicklow within easy driving distance from Dublin. The Courtyard is reputed as being one of Ireland’s best yoga and holistic retreats. The enclosed courtyard offers such seclusion and tranquility which lends itself so perfectly to a retreat.

At The Courtyard we advocate a holistic approach to health and wellbeing by offering a wide range of wellbeing retreats including yoga, mindfulness, meditation, ayurveda, tai chi, chi gong, pilates, yoga & fitness, life coaching and more. Our retreats range in duration from day retreats, weekend retreats to 1 week retreats and run regularly throughout the year. On average we have 20-22 guests on each retreat. We may accept less guests on more specialised retreats.

Our teachers are exceptional. They are highly qualified and all have between 10 and 20 years of experience behind them. Our delicious vegetarian food is cooked by myself, I am a Ballymaloe chef and my wonderful foodie team Tina and Frances. We plan our menus with great care and use fresh and quality ingredients. We choose ingredients according to seasons. We use vegetables and fruit grown at The Courtyard when we can produce enough. Our accommodation is very special.  Our beautifully renovated courtyard houses having been lovingly restored by my parents Noel and Dee who you will meet at the retreat.  The purpose renovated yoga room is wonderful, the room has a great energy and has beautiful views over the courtyard. The yoga room has special lighting to reflect the exposed limestone walls which creates a very warm and special ambiance. The courtyard is lit up at night which is quite spectacular.

The atmosphere at The Courtyard is very warm and friendly. Guests feel at home instantly. There is a vibrant yet relaxed energy about the place. We have a wonderful and dedicated team of staff who all work really hard to make the retreat such a special place. We ensure success by maintaining high standards at all times with our food, tuition and accommodation. We run each retreat as if it were our first retreat. Every retreat is special. We depend greatly on repeat business and referrals and we strive to maintain our 5 star rating.

We hope to welcome you to our home at The Courtyard soon. Namaste, Olivia xo
