Places

We host retreats in locations around Ireland, and are planning for trips to other countries soon.  The venues we use mostly are Coolattin Lodge in Wicklow and the Gyreum Ecolodge in Sligo.

The Gyreum Ecolodge, built by Columba Stapleton, is a unique circular structure in County Sligo, adjacent to the cairns at Carrowkeel and aligned with the dawn and dusk solstices of winter and the solstice sun down of summer. Accommodation at the Gyreum is in shared, dormitory-style rooms.

Coolattin Lodge, situated in a beautiful part of County Wicklow and surrounded by woodlands, is a carefully restored Victorian courtyard. Its owners have beautifully and sympathetically refurbished four cottages around a central courtyard, "retaining traditional features, fabric and even the patina that have endured for nearly 200 years." Accommodation at Coolattin is in luxurious double, twin or family-style rooms.

We are currently planning future retreats in other locations in Ireland, including Wexford and Longford.
