Yoga Retreats in Ireland near Dublin

Yoga is becoming more and more popular in Ireland and given that the majority of the population of Ireland live in or around the Dublin and Leinster area it is so nice to have a yoga retreat venue close by. The Courtyard Yoga Retreats is located just over an hour from Dublin City centre in the beautiful surrounds of Country Wicklow and is within easy reach but yet just far enough for our yoga retreat attendees to feel like they have got away from it all and that they are on a yoga holiday!

The venue itself is like no other, set in the courtyard of a beautiful former Victorian model farm where the farm houses have been beautifully and sympathetically restored retaining many of the old existing features. The purpose built/renovated yoga room is fantastic, this was the old carriage house and is still called the Carriage house. The houses are all named and themed on their original use The Dairymaid’s house, The Groom’s house, The Saddler’s loft and Tindal’s Cottage. The property is steeped in history. It was the home farm to the magnificent Earl Fitzwilliam estate which is the adjoining property, now Coolattin Golf Club.

At the Courtyard we have a panel of fantastic yoga teachers from which we chose from for each yoga retreat. Our panel includes some of Ireland’s best yoga teachers. Our retreats offer many styles of yoga to include ashtanga, hatha, vinyasa, yin, restorative, kundalini, sivananda and more. Most of the retreats include meditation and some mindfulness.

Our yoga retreats are suitable for all levels from beginners to advanced. We ensure that everyone feels comfortable and at ease.
We take details from you upon booking which are passed on to the yoga teacher so that the teacher is aware of your level and experience and so that they are aware of any weaknesses or injuries that you may have.

"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!"
