We have private single rooms, twin rooms,
and triple rooms. You can either book a room privately for yourself, share a private room with a friend or two, or
share a room with others on the same retreat.
On some retreats accommodation may
be shared with other attendees. If you're not used to this, don't worry! This is part of the retreat
experience and helps to create a large family atmosphere. Also, you won't be spending so much time in your
room anyhow - the retreat is so packed with events, exotic experiences and friendly interactions, that you hit
the pillow tired at night, and then the next morning you jump out of bed and are out walking or jogging through the
mature woodlands on the shores of Upper Lough Erne, hearing the morning chorus of the

All food is vegetarian and extremely tasty, cooked with love by Carmen

familiar with the cuisine of India and you think 'spicy' means hot with chillies you can look forward
to many nice experiences on your retreat. Remember: when Europeans first started going to India about 500 years
ago, one of the prime motivations was to trade in spices. Some probably picked up a few cooking tips as well -
maybe they were getting bored with meat and bread...
In case you're a yogi, Vaishnava or someone familiar with a 'sattvic'
diet, we don't use the following ingredients: onions, garlic, mushrooms, vinegar and alcohol. In Ayurveda these
ingredients may be prescribed for medicinal or other uses, but are not generally consumed by hatha or
bhakti yogis. If that sounds 'restrictive' then you might find you have a lot to learn about non-European
