The Courtyard, Shillelagh, Coolattin, Co.Wicklow


Welcome to your home from home

Guests often comment that the houses are better in reality than in the website images but I will let you make up your mind for yourselves! We have 4 beautiful courtyard houses, Dairymaid’s House, Tindal’s Cottage, Saddler’s Loft, Groom’s House. The houses originally accommodated the farm workers when the property was a working Victorian farm which served the magnificent Lord Fitzwilliam estate, (adjoining property), now Coolattin Golf Club. Each house has been named after it’s original use, The Dairymaid’s, The Groom’s, The Saddler’s Loft and Tindal’s Cottage. They have been beautifully and sympathetically refurbished, retaining traditional features, fabric and even the patina that have endured for nearly 200 years.

We have a mix of doubles and twin bedrooms. Each bedroom sleeps 2 people. You can opt to come with a friend and share a twin or come as a single and share with someone on the retreat, come as a couple and have a double bedroom or come as a single and pay a single occupancy supplement €70.00, a single occupancy room does not necessarily mean you will have a private bathroom. We have a very limited amount of single occupancy rooms on offer for each retreat. Most bathrooms are shared. Most bedrooms have interlinking en-suites which are shared. Not all are en-suites some bathrooms are separated.

Still glowing from last week’s fabulous yoga retreat weekend at the Courtyard. Will definitely be back!

"My husband and I have nothing but positive to say about The Courtyard. We made to feel very welcome from start to finish, with a ‘home-away-from-home’ sort of feel the food was an absolute treat and the yoga teaching was insightful and inspiring. Would give 6 stars if we could."

"Myself and my Mum had the most fantastic weekend at the Courtyard Yoga Retreat. Everything from the Yoga, to the food, to the setting and the welcome was second to none. Liz Richards is a particularly experienced and excellent yoga teacher. Olivia’s cooking is simply delicious. It is so satisfying, light but filling and extremely tasty and easy to eat. Both Mum and I can’t wait to come back. Thanks v much, Ali"

"Just back from a most amazing yoga retreat at the courtyard. From the warm welcome, yummy treats by the fire, amazing yoga sessions by Liz, and delicious and nutritious food, it was all just perfect for what I was looking for; rest, restoration, learning, good food and lovely company. Liz is a great teacher, bringing it right back to the basics and through her almost meditative stream of instruction bringing you to a new level of yoga awareness. Thank you all at the Courtyard. I will be back!"

"Came to the courtyard retreat with my sister last weekend. It did not disappoint…..beautiful surroundings, comfortable accommodation and delicious vegetarian food. Olivia and her family were very welcoming, always on hand and worked so hard to make our weekend effortless. Liz is an amazing yoga teacher. Her classes allowed us to focus on the body, breath and mind. I felt revitalize and relaxed after a weekend of delicious food, excellent yoga and great company. Wonderful way to start the year!"
