Our first stop will be Inis Mór, where we will have a fun afternoon full of adventure (see below). After this, we will make our way to the Cliffs of Moher on our return journey. Formed 300 million years ago, the Cliffs rise to a magnificent height of over 200 meters which you can truly appreciate from the water. Watch for Puffins, dolphins, seals and basking sharks that call these waters home as you breathe the fresh sea air and navigate Ireland's West coast.

ARAN ISLANDS + CLIFFS OF MOHER
BOAT TOUR

After arriving to Inis Mór via ferry, we have 4.5 hours to explore this beautiful island. After renting e-bikes, we will journey to Dún Aonghasa, perched on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. This is the largest prehistoric stone forts of the Aran Islands. Next, we bike to Kilmurvey Beach where we can enjoy white sand, blue water and rest. After all this, we return to the ferry to go see the Cliffs of Moher before returning to the mainland.  

 

Total biking distance: 9.9mi / 16.2km

E-BIKE ADVENTURES:
DÚN AONGHASA + KILMURVEY BEACH

Diamond Hill is a highlight for all visiting Connemara. It stands at a height of 442 meters above sea level and offers some of the best views of the National Park. This hike can look intimidating, but is reasonable and should take 3 hours to complete. Thankfully, the stunning views along the way make it worth it. 

 

Total hiking distance: 4.4mi / 7.1km 

CONNEMARA HIKE AT DIAMOND HILL

Located a 5-minute walk from our accommodation, the Killary Fjord Sauna is the perfect add-on to our stay. The sauna sits on the shore of the Killary Fjord allowing you an uninterrupted view of the fjord and Mweelrea mountain as you sit back and relax. Its proximity to the sea means that a fresh dip in the crystal clear waters of the fjord is only a few steps away.

BEAUTY IN BELONGING WORKSHOP

Diving into one of our greatest human strengths, we remember our truest sense of belonging. This workshop, involving group discussions and partner exercises, is a transformative heart-opener designed to help us overcome obstacles on our path and to re-discover the art of being seen.

ACTIVE MEDITATION EXPERIENCE

This is a powerful shaking and dancing meditation. We begin in a state of shaking, transition to dance, then to seated meditation and finally, laying in meditation. Delivering beautiful results, this workshop helps us to release and awaken our temples.

TESTIMONIALS

 

"Retreats with Adam aren’t your typical yoga retreats. The beauty of retreats with Sacred Sojourn is that they are a diverse experience centered around exploration; exploring the environment around us with beautiful, immersive hikes, as well as exploring depths within ourselves as individuals and as a collective through inspiring workshops... I am so excited to join once again for an adventure of a lifetime, in the not so distant future."    - Aubrey M.

"The connections I made and amount of laughter I had was unforgettable. Epic dance parties, exotic excursions, gourmet meals, new friends, what more could you ask for?! I highly recommend Sacred Sojourn for your next retreat experience."   - Cori D.

"I recently went on my first ever retreat. I was pretty apprehensive about it and worried I wouldn't fit the vibe. It took me a little while to settle in, but everyone was so genuine and kind and I felt no pressure to be or act a certain way. If you are on the fence about attending a retreat, sign up. Say yes and give yourself this wonderful gift. I can't wait for the next!"   - Julie W.

"Wow where do I start, first with five stars. This retreat exceeded my expectations and so did Adam’s professionalism. Not only was the retreat set up just right, the food and chef was an amazing and nourishing touch. I will definitely be on another retreat in the future."   - Sarah K.


"It was amazing. It was a much needed break and time for me. I loved connecting with others and nature. You come as strangers and leave as family."   - Shawn J.
