Boghill Centre Reviews


Boghill Centre is an eco friendly residentional music and healing centre on the west coast of Ireland. Situated at the foot of the Burren the Boghill offers a relaxed and tranquile venue with easy access to points of interest in the Burren and on the Coast. The Centre is close to Lisdoonvarna and Doolin where regular music sessions take place. The centre is run by musicians and very often sessions take place in the living room in front of the turf fire. The place is used by various groups conducting workshops ranging from tribal drumming to singing , yoga, 5 rythm dancing and traditional irish music.
During times we have groups in the access to hostellers might be restricted so check beforehand for availability.
