What Visitors Say
"What a beautiful place you have created. Loved the space, the building, the windows, the sun in the morning and the zen feel of it all. Hoping to be back for some yoga next time!"
“Paradise has been found and exists off the coast of West Cork – Heir Island. Your Retreat has been the conduit to some reflective time – relaxing, walking, reading and enjoying all that the island has to offer”
“Our two windswept but spectacular nights here have been truly wonderful. There is a serenity and beauty here that is a rare find. The sounds of the sea, and the rustling of the long grasses have been a much needed break form city soundscapes. We hope to return soon.”
What a joy to be here! Peaceful, calm, stunningly beautiful. You have created a real sanctuary. Thank you so much and look forward to bringing more yoga and women’s groups here in the future.
I have been doing yoga retreats with Lisa since 2014 in this wonderful space and feel that the atmosphere, layout and location of your studio impacts hugely on the experience – an inspiring space.
Heir Island Retreat and Heir island are a match made in heaven. It's a beautiful studio looking straight out on to the sea. A fantastic setting to create work or give/attend a performance. Apart from the beautiful interior and warm acoustic, the view is inspiring. If you are there to make work as I was with my colleagues, the Retreat is perfect for that. It has all the practical facilities that just make life simpler so you can concentrate on the work. It also has an outdoor area that you can go and hide out in if you need to step back for a moment. Sarah and Paul both have a great energy to them and are very generous in the way they welcome and accommodate visitors. Heir Island Retreat is ideal for any kind of creative project or for time alone on the edge of the world.
Sarah and Paul, thanks so much for offering the opportunity to gather in such a beautiful space. I couldn't find a better place for a week-end mindfulness retreat. The studio is perfect, there is a very serene, warm energy, full of light, the views are stunning, and all this on such lovely island. Everything there contributes to make this an ideal place to take time off, unplug and just be.
