The Courtyard

A yoga retreat like no other

The heart of the retreat is undoubtedly the courtyard which also distinguishes us from any other yoga retreat in Ireland. Another wonderful feature is the atmospheric yoga room set in the old carriage house. On entering the courtyard you will leave the stresses of every day behind you and relax into this tranquil and welcoming environment. The courtyard is just perfect for retreats, it is secluded and you really do feel cut off from the outside world which is what we all need sometimes, a bit of escapism.  There are 4 beautifully restored courtyard houses all named after their original usage, The Dairymaid’s House where the dairy was and the dairymaid lived, The Grooms House, where the grooms boys lived above the Carriage house which is now the yoga room, The Saddler’s, where they stored the tack and the saddler lived and Tindal’s cottage is where Mr Tindal lived, he was the farm manager. The steward lived in the main house which is called the Stewards house. The model victorian farm was the farm attached to Coolattin House, a magnificent estate which is now Coolattin Golf Club, our neighbour. You can read more about the history of the property in the about us section.

Please note this is a private family run retreat, we do not hire The Courtyard to visiting yoga groups.

Had a lovely time at the Courtyard. Great Yoga instructor. Accommodation is lovely, you can see how much love has been put into restoring it. Catering was super. Thanks for a lovely weekend Olivia and Maggie! Ann – January 2016
