Treat yourself and friends/colleagues to a midweek personal retreat at The Boghill Centre, Co Clare.
50 hours of relaxation, gentle yoga, meditation, breath work, chanting, healing therapies, walking & delicious organic vegetarian food.

Get away from it all at the secluded, tranquil setting of Boghill - a sanctuary situated at the foot of the Burren in north Clare. Here we have many years experience of indulging retreats and rejuvenation of the soul. Boghill is the perfect place to relax, rewind and recharge your batteries. Our therapeutic retreat is designed to pamper, rejuvenate and banish stress. Each day includes yoga, meditation, chanting, breath work, a therapy workshop and the opportunity for a walk and to indulge in an individual therapy session. All workshop tutors, guides and therapists are trained and experienced.

Our kitchen is renowned for its delicious nurturing vegetarian food sourced primarily from the adjoining organic garden and orchard. Our gourmet menu will nourish your soul as well as your body and we are happy to cater for special diets.

The Boghill Centre is a sustainable complex with a strong Environmental policy set in 50 acres of land. The estate includes organic vegetable and fruit gardens, a nature trail, a stone circle, a wildlife pond, a reed labyrinth, a chicken coop and pig pen, an orchard, and several recently planted native woodland areas. Our mantra is reduce, reuse, recycle and our ethos is based on creating an environmentally sustainable business having a minimal impact on the earth.

At Boghill we offer a therapeutic retreat with a difference – a refreshing change from a Hotel Spa where you make your own programme of activities. We guide you through a balanced therapeutic schedule, designed to reach mind, body and soul - a holiday for the head, a treat for the body and an awakening of the soul.
As well as the programme of activities you will be offered a choice of individual therapies to pre-book before arrival at affordable guest rates. Our range includes Aromatherapy massage, Indian Head massage, Reflexology, Reiki and Spiritual healing.
