July Retreat
 It’s hard to put into words just how magical this place is. The cottage is gorgeous and perfect for a group, with its high ceilings, big dining table, lots of cosy corners and old fire stove. The garden is stunning (particularly in autumn), with its mystical grass labyrinth, yellow trees and rolling hills in the distance. The activities they offer on-site are such a treat, from yoga classes with Hilary to cold dips and sauna sessions thanks to Tim. But perhaps the most special thing about this place is the hosts themselves. They’re the two most joyous, generous people we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting, going above and beyond to make you feel at home. Already we can’t wait to be back.
Thank you so much for making my first-ever experience at The Yoga Barn an unforgettable one!  Morgan November 2022
I just wanted to write to say thank you so much for such a lovely retreat and it was a magnificent mini-break for us. It was perfection for celebrating my friends’ birthdays and we all felt that it was a treat to be in your lovely cottage. The retreat itself was relaxing and everyone enjoyed it immensely and we all marveled that our muscles were sore afterwards even though it seemed like such a relaxing yoga practice. The food was also magnificent. So, please thank Emer for her efforts as well. We will be trying to recreate some of those delectable treats. It was especially lovely to enjoy the sauna and just have a couple of days to rest and restore. It was delightful meeting both of you and learning about your yoga studio and the amazing work you’ve both put into it. We hope to return sooner rather than later!

From start to finish I had the most ‘wonderful-est’ time… from the warm welcome… to the patient, supportive, relaxing yoga… to the soulful nourishing lunch… to the “floating” home at the end.
I’m looking forward to many more wonderful times in your special little haven.

An amazing day. Hilary guided us through a morning of fun yoga and many took the leap into handstands at the end. Then we were treated to a fantastic lunch prepared by Aoife and Emer and all were thoroughly filled and delighted with the amazing tastes and presentation. Tim did his bit as greeter, server and bus boy with good humour and grace. The afternoon was the icing on the cake with deep relaxing and poses which didn’t seem like poses but the body feels wonderful at the end. Bravo to everyone who made this a very special occasion including the sun which unexpectantly appeared and added a magical touch to the day. Cant wait to go again!  Sonia O’Connor 

I attended a workshop here yesterday, couldn’t think of a better way to spend a day. Hilary is a wonderful teacher with warmth and humour, food was delicious and in a truly beautiful setting. Thank you Hilary and Tim, I will definitely be back. Tara O’Rourke

This one day retreat was my first experience of the Yoga Barn, and I intend to be a regular student from now on. Hilary is a wonderful teacher, calm, knowledgeable, attentive, and experienced. The studio and surroundings are beautiful and tranquil. And the food is healthy and scrumptious, what more can I say! Audrey Evelyn

This Yoga retreat has every ingredient that a fantastic yoga retreat should have. Hilary is so knowledgeable about the anatomy & injuries and keeps a very close eye on each and every person practising with her. She has an incredible Aura and presence balanced with a gentle voice. The yoga barn is situated in a very tranquil haven in rural countryside, perfect for relaxation and meditation. The vegetarian meal is creative, tasty & full of scrumptious homemade and home-grown produce. Overall the day goes too fast as we immerse ourselves in morning meditation, stretching and flow, followed by an afternoon of blissful restorative yoga for the heart, mind and body. This is my 3rd retreat with Hilary this year and each time I leave I feel in balance and refreshed. Namaste x     Karen McMahon
