Vibrant Living Retreat and Day Spa is a beautiful destination, where you can truly relax and unwind. There are spaces for meditation and yoga, a beautiful garden, and the massages are great. The rooms were fantastic too, very comfortable and nicely done :)

Vibrant living offers an amazing experience in beautiful surroundings . My girlfriend and I took part in the detox / yoga retreat and it truly out shine our expectations. Mary Jo is the perfect hostess offering a truly spiritual experience.

We were welcomed by Steve, a very charming Irishman from Co. Mayo. Our room was extremely comfortable with a very spacious bathroom. The bed was very, very comfortable and ensured a good night's sleep. Breakfast was excellent and beautifully presented and served.
