Our 2023 in-person Retreat will be August 28 – 31 at the Burren College of Art.
To ensure the quality of the experience, we limit the group size to twenty-five. The spaces fill quickly and so we suggest that if you have not already completed this step, you contact Mary Stacey to arrange a 30m introductory call, after which you will be able to register.
(if you work in a corporation, large organization, public body): €3350
(if you work in an NGO or independent, small business): €1995
Food and Accommodation: €595
You can hold your place with a deposit of €1200 (€605 programme/€595 accommodation and meals).
Please note the Refund and Cancellation Policy below
We recommend you consider spending additional time in the Burren, especially arriving a few days early if you are coming from a greater distance.
Accommodation should be selected based on the length of your stay and travel distance.
Cottage accommodation with breakfast included is most suitable if you are traveling a long distance or plan to spend some additional time in the Burren. These traditional Burren thatched-roof cottages typically accommodate three participants. Most have one ensuite room and two rooms with a shared bath. The cottages have kitchen facilities available and a local grocery store nearby.
Hotel accommodation with breakfast included is most suitable if you are coming for the retreat only.
Refund and Cancellation Policy
Cancellations made more than one month in advance of the Retreat will be refunded in full minus a €250 administrative fee. Cancellations made less than one month in advance are subject to a forfeiture of 50% of the registration fee plus the administration fee.
Cancellations made within two weeks of the start date or no shows are not eligible for a refund. If registration is cancelled at any time, you can choose to send a colleague in your place, who would benefit from and make a valuable contribution to the programme. Alternatively, you can apply your fees to participating in the following year’s programme.
