Ireland Retreat

Dragonfly crosses the pond!

Join us on the Wild Atlantic Way!

April 23-April 30, 2019


Join Katie & Declan for an adventure you’ll always remember!


Our trip begins in Cork, Ireland on Tuesday, April 23rd.

From the airport, we head to Blarney where we’ll tour Blarney Castle, the Woolen Mills, and enjoy our first group dinner together in this ancient little town.

In the morning, we head onto the “Wild Atlantic Way” to gaze over the green miles of Ireland’s south and west coast known for it’s gorgeous scenery, towns perched overlooking the beaches and rugged cliffs, mountain passes and valleys dotted with stone cottages, and almost as many sheep as pubs!

We will bed and breakfast our way through quaint towns and villages at some of Ireland’s sweet hotels and lodges, catch lunches or stop to sip pints, shop for Irish treats, and look out over the never-ending fields and stone walls of Ireland’s gorgeous countryside.


Afternoons and evenings settle us into lively pubs where we’ll eat the local fare and maybe even catch some traditional Irish music!


There is time to walk in the villages after our days of sightseeing, to dip in and out of the pubs and check out the “craic,” and to take pictures of the castles, forts, and endless green fields.

From Cork to Kinsale, from Killarney to the Ring of Kerry, from the Dingle Peninsula to the Cliffs of Moher, we will wander the Wild Atlantic Way together! And who knows what surprises there are!! We are still ironing out some of our incredible itinerary and may even keep some things a secret until we arrive!  


The best thing about this trip? You are traveling with Dragonfly Yoga’s own native Irishman, Declan O’Connell, who will regale all of us as we meander his very favorite places in Ireland, West Cork, Kerry, Clare, and Galway–undoubtedly the prettiest, wildest, and most photographed parts of Ireland where the land meets the sea. Katie promises to work out the kinks each day with a gentle yoga class in the morning, and if the weather treats us right, we will practice some days out in the open air or maybe even spontaneous yoga in a castle!!
