Carlingford Yoga Retreat Nov 2022
What a heart and soul warming way to embrace Samhna. Thank you for a wonderful weekend of Healing Yoga with the vibrant Sharon Ní Chuilibín, Kundalini yoga instructor (also healer, musician, artist and Gaeilgeoir). The variety of yoga, music, mantras, meditation, walking and resting provided the perfect balance of restoration and respite. Thank you Mary for the wonderful hospitality, roaring fires and delicious food that provided heartwarming and inspirational nourishment.

This was 5 star in every way. Stuart and Martina go our of their way to make their home and welcoming, open, peaceful and restorative. The meals were great. The yoga instruction given by Martina was perfect, encouraging, supportive and confidence building. The accommodation was great. The setting was out of this world. The walks led by Stuart were brilliant, stunning views, a tranquil but lively pace, a good path and the length was just right. It all presents excellent value for money. No doubt I will be back. Thank you Martina and Stuart

The weekend yoga & Wim Hof retreat was just amazing... here's some highlights:

- The setting is beautiful
- The accomodation and welcome was wonderful. Soup on arrival, sturdy bunks with privacy curtain, slept great
- The food is simply AMAZING. Three freshly prepared meals/day including breakfast and I genuinely felt so much healthier on departure. Lot's of ingredients grown on-site and perfect portion size. Like eating at Cornucopia in Dublin every day and then some....
- YOGA Martina is a fantastic instructor. I was new to Inyengar practice, and really enjoyed the inversions and chair work, which complimented my Ashtanga + Yin background. The studio is a lovely space to practice in
- WHM John helped me enhance my breathwork practice and gain a deeper understanding of this powerful wellbeing tool, he's great
- ICE BATH after 3yrs of daily cold showers I was keen to experience the ice, and guided instruction is a really sound way to approach this, I now dip every morning and enjoy a warm shower to follow
- HIKING both Sat and Sun hikes were challenging but entirely doable, and the Sun swim in a mountain lake was such a great way to wrap-up the weekend

The other guests in our group were wonderful, a lovely gang of folk and this enhanced the experience. We all managed the ice bath, great team spirit!

I'm still a little blown away and will be returning. Can't close without mentioning super-Stuart, who's company I thoroughly enjoyed throughout the weekend.

All the best Martina, John and Stuart - and THANK YOU

Eagle's Rock Retreat is a unique offering. Martina and Stuart open their home with great care and consideration for their guests. The accommodation is clean and comfortable. The food, all vegan, is absolutely delicious and is nourishment sufficient for the body while the opportunity to practice yoga provides for the body and soul. Located amidst rolling hills you can escape the business of everyday life. The yoga teaching was excellent, all equipment required was available and the studio has a vista of green fields. Stuart guided our group on a hike on the Saturday which provided opportunity to have space from the group or to join in conversation. The pricing was very reasonable for a weekend retreat that I thoroughly enjoyed.

We recently held our first 2 night retreat at Eagles Rock. It was the most amazing experience. Stuart and Martina were so supportive and welcoming. The accommodation was spacious and spotless. The vegan food was the best I've ever tasted. Stuart guided us through a very enjoyable hike on the Saturday and on Sunday a walking meditation! The view was just breathtaking! Stuart and Matina couldn't have done more to make our first retreat run smoothly. I highly recommend this Venue.

I was really happy with my weekend retreat trip to Eagles Rock.
I found the pricing very fair, the quality of yoga teaching was excellent by Martina - I felt she was patient and encouraging.
The food is top notch, all vegan and delicious.
The accommodation is very clean and well kept.
The only thing was on the Saturday there was no hot water for showers but we could survive of course.
I would recommend for solo yogis who would like the experience of going into the countryside and be surrounded by calm, rolling green hills and a zen atmosphere. All other participants were very friendly and open too.
Also note that this is a family home you're hosted in, it's run by a couple and their child, but the atmosphere was nice.

Thank you for your kind review. We typically have oodles of hot water; wish it had been mentioned. Hope you will keep with your good yoga practice. Enjoy those recipes!

The Easter long weekend was very special for me. I spent some time in a little village near Carlingford, on the border with Northern Ireland.

I was planning to go on a retreat long time ago. Initially to a Qi Gong retreat, as I'm practicing and teaching Qi Gong.

As there are a lot more yoga retreats than Qi Gong in Ireland, I found a four day yoga retreat in Carlingford. The place looked amazing, very picturesque in the photos and I liked the program. So it was my plan for Easter holidays.

I hadn't been doing a lot of yoga before, especially Iyengar yoga and it looked very exciting, new for me.

I met beautiful like-minded people, warm, positive, very interesting..

We were living in a cottage in the field surrounded by sheep and little newly born lambs. There was full connection to nature.

We had daily yoga practices, and yoga was specific. I would call it an acrobatic yoga. We were hanging on the ropes with our heads down, using the chairs, bolsters, blocks, it really felt like you're doing something above your potential. For me it was really going out of my comfort zone, starting doing something new, slightly challenging, completely different..

Apart from the yoga we also went hiking, walking upon the hill and in the forest, then descending to the seaside. and enjoying a cup of coffee with plenty of chats and laughs with our folks.

We also had some time for ourselves that I really appreciated.. Time to read, write, reflect.. I

The family who were organising the retreat live there, it's their home. They were hosting us, cooking delicious food making us feel like home.

I'm grateful for this time.

Big thank you.

Just home from a beautiful weekend spend at Eagles Rock Retreat, where I facilitated a retreat for 12 participants who all left feeling a whole lot more nourished, rested and restored after a few days in this beautiful space. Stuart and Martina's space is set right in nature with views for miles, the food is beautiful and the yoga studio is incredible. I have hosted many retreats across the world and this space will hold a piece of my heart. As hosts Stuart and Martina were very helpful and between delicious food, lighting fires in the studio and living room in the evening and taking the group on a guided nature walk and into Carlingford, they only added to the experience. Each room was clean, comfortable and accompanied by an en suite which was also very helpful and rare to find. Was delighted with my choice to stay here, and hope to be back some day with another group.
