Downward dog at the Cliffs of Moher Retreat
There are several short and soothing breaks available at the Cliffs of Moher Retreat, a homely health resort just metres from the Atlantic Ocean on the west coast of Ireland. But if you want to combine gentle hill climbs with plenty of calm, then the Connect to Nature break is perfect. Over two days, you’ll take head-clearing hikes along the cliffs and repair your body and mind with long, nourishing stints on the mat in the glass-fronted yoga studio. Free time? Wade into the ocean for a dip, warm up in a wood-burning hot tub and indulge in a massage. Leave relaxed and revived.
