Join us for a week long adventure on the west coast of Ireland, alongside the only Loch in the country. Enjoy a jam-packed schedule of wild swimming, hiking, kayaking, gorge walking, yoga, stargazing.
Welcome to the September yoga holiday in Ireland, 7 nights of full adventure!
Join us in the stunning Connemara region in West Ireland, a place of legend, folklore and profound beauty. Set within a scenic corner of County Galway, it is a region famed for its wild terrain and deeply routed Irish culture. The rugged mountains and expansive wild spaces lead to perfect white sand beaches and bays with quaint fishing villages.
Our home, situated on the west coast and within 185 acres, sits right on the Killary Fjord – a nature and adventure lovers paradise! Surrounded by jaw-dropping scenery this springtime yoga holiday Ireland will be all about embracing everything the area has to offer.
Included in the price is a day on a kayak on the Loch followed by a gorge walk, three days of guided hiking and morning wild swims for the brave! This is all on our doorstep and much more will be on offer if you would like to squeeze some more adventure in.
With its community feel, our venue for this yoga holiday in Ireland is a truly modern space. Boasting stylish interiors and unique, bespoke features throughout it feels comfortable and bright.
Importantly, there are spaces to read and relax such as the hanging chairs in the reading snugs dotted around the property as well as the communal areas.
However, the main magic is outside embracing the majestic landscape of Ireland and luckily there are plenty of spaces to enjoy that too! Without a doubt, the two fire pits will be a much-loved feature on a starry evening. A covered outdoor eating area and outdoor seating mean you can always catch a glimpse of the sea and the mountains.

Over the 13 years that AY has been organising our bespoke retreats, we have always made sure that we work with exceptional yoga teachers who are dedicated to their practice and live and breathe yoga, so you can feel safe in the knowledge that you will be inspired, relaxed and tensions dissolved by the end of your retreat with us.
On our September yoga holiday in Ireland, our yoga classes are suitable for all abilities. From beginners to intermediate and advanced levels, everyone is welcome. Furthermore, our inspiring and experienced teachers are well-practised at adapting the class to everyone’s level.

Men & Women
Ireland has always been a land of romanticism. From the charm of its’s people to the richness of its’ history it feels a special place. And, it is!
Our location makes the most of this special feeling by embracing the wide variety of landscapes and environments that the Connemara is known for. We will be based on the edge of Irelands’ only true Fjord with views out to the West (perfect for sunset) and the surrounding mountains and rolling hills. It feels wild, rugged and exciting!
This amazing spot also means we are in the perfect place to explore and have adventures! Access to the water is a hop, skip and jump across the garden from the yoga studio so sunrise cold water swims and kayak tours are readily available. Connemara National Park is only 15 minutes away and the stunning white sand beaches of Glassilaun are a beautiful 20 minute journey past lochs and mountains.
On the start day of your September yoga holiday Ireland, you will be picked up and driven across stunning landscape across Ireland and taken straight to the door of your new home for the next 4 nights. Enjoy a short grounding practice after a long day and then enjoy a wholesome and filling evening meal.
