Ireland is a special place for Aveen. Her parents hail from the Emerald Isle and she spent many childhood days falling in love with the land and it’s people each summer. Ireland feels like home and the perfect place to take a leap into the world of international retreats.

We enlisted the help of seasoned traveler and international retreat leader, Amy Annis to help find the perfect location for our group.
