Situated in the quaint, picturesque village of Ballynacally in County Clare’s West Coast along the Shannon estuary way drive. The incredible beauty of the surrounding natural environment inspires a sense of tranquillity and serenity. 

After years of taking people on wellness retreats in Ireland and beyond, there was a calling to bring people to a sacred land in the Irish Countryside with ancient historical sites and heritage, a place to heal and return home to oneself.

A warm welcome awaits from Rosie and Micheál, a husband and wife team who aim to give their retreaters a unique retreat experience that will leave them floating home feeling ultimately relaxed. 

The Shannon estuary way retreat is a passionate eco wellbeing centre with indoor and outdoor wellness areas that offer exclusive wellbeing day retreats that evoke a sense of peace and soul nourishment informed by the surrounding trees, islands, water, and mountains.
