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.
Single rooms available on all retreats.
Also, 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 countrside by the shores of Upper Lough Erne, hearing the
morning chorus of the birds.

basmati rice, etc, etc.) and 'Western' vegetarian (e.g. pizza, salads, pasta, soups, etc). In case you're not so
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

being) in subtle ways. Images below: a few treats cooked and photographed
