I've had the pleasure of attending retreats as well as working here. This is such a special place, a retreat location on an island, and a stunningly remote part too adds to the depth of the experience. The yoga is excellent and has transformed by practice a lot! I haven't attended many other types of retreat but here you get... More

I went to the Clare Island retreat centre on an open house arrangement and it was just what I needed. I loved the practice , the food and the non expectation of anything. I was left to my own devices, dipping in and out of this wholesome and spiritual oasis of peace and calm. I was able to just BE... More

My second visit to Clare Island Yoga Retreat Centre was just as inspiring and uplifting as my first. Macalla farm has an amazing setting and Ciara and Christophe are experts at running a truly wholesome and unpretentious retreat centre. The teaching is of the highest quality and the setting is nature at its very best. Nothing here is done by... More

I have been to the Clare Island yoga retreat 8 times already and have been satisifed every single times. Ciara and Christophe are very experienced teachers and will help you wherever you are in the practice. The food is organic and vegetarian, delicious and home-made. The place is very quiet, ideal to recharge your batteries. Not to be missed!

Macalla farm, on the top of Clare Island, with a beautiful view on the sea, the cliffs and the Wild hills... You can enjoy the very original végétarian cooking by Chiara and Christophe, with local products and exotic spices. Try the homemade marmelade and the eldeflower wine ! Ride connemara poneys barefoot and betless ; ))

Oddly enough I'm writing this review in Rishikesh.m I was trying to think of my favourite places for meditation and yoga and Clare Island hits the spot. I've been 3 times and hopefully shall return when I'm next in Ireland. Ciara and Christophe have something very special on a gorgeous island.

I went to the Clare Island Yoga Centre for a long weekend of yoga and vegetarian cooking. Ciara and Cristophe are gracious and welcoming hosts, amazing yoga teachers and very accomplished organic farmers. The houses/cottages for guests are warm and cozy with comfortable kitchen and bathrooms and great comfy beds. The yoga studio in the main house has a beautiful... More
