- Meditators with some experience who’ve never been on retreat before
The retreat leader
The retreat will be led by Vajrashura; the manager of the DBC who’s been meditating for 17 years and teaching meditation for 12 years.
What they say
The retreat is a brilliant way to deepen your meditation after the intro to meditation
course. Restful and insightful. Highly recommended!
- Rick, Wicklow weekend retreat
The most worthwhile thing I've done in a long time.
- Hugh, Wicklow weekend retreat
If you want to get off the motorway of modern life for a while and park somewhere
quiet to reflect and review the direction you are taking in your journey... A retreat
with the Dublin Buddhist Centre can offer you a change of oil, new spark plugs, a
cleaner windscreen, tightened suspension and quite possibly update your Sat-nav so
that you may finally know where you are going.

What people enjoy most
We asked previous retreat participants what the highlights were for them. They answered:
- Meeting others on the retreat
- The meditation
- The food
- The chance to think
All dishes are vegan, but don’t let that put you off. We’ve astounded by many omnivores on our retreats who admitted they had no idea vegan food could be so tasty and filling!
Every meal is cooked from scratch, and there is always enough for second helpings. No one ever goes hungry on our retreats.
The building is an old house, relatively recently converted, and is comfortable. Most bedrooms have two single beds and share a bathroom with an adjoining room. There are also two newly converted dormatories which have three single beds in each of them, and an adjoining toilet.
There is also a beautiful shrine room for meditating.
We do tiered pricing, depending on the circumstances.
