The Boghill Centre is a residential Ecotourism venue for courses, events, conferences etc with a focus on Traditional Irish Music, Holistic workshops and Eco training activities. It is situated in a natural bogland setting in the North of County Clare at the foot of the Burren. Although it is only two miles from Lisdoonvarna and three miles from Kilfenora it has a quiet and secluded atmosphere making it the perfect place to relax and unwind.

B&B and hostel accommodation is available all year round. Accommodation at Boghill is flexible to suit your needs and your purse. Although the centre is fully booked with groups of people for much of the year, visitors are welcome whenever there are rooms available. Sleeping can be arranged in bedrooms and dormitories to suit your particular requirements with ample toilet and shower facilities to hand. En-suite double rooms or single rooms sharing shower room are available for €34 including a continental breakfast. The double en-suite rooms are comfortable and practical. Each has two single beds which can be combined to create a double bed. The en-suite shower rooms feature power showers and shaving points. The single rooms are in two blocks – each block of two sharing a separate entrance and a shower room. Boghill welcomes hostellers particularly during the summer months when there aren’t so many large groups taking over all the centre beds. At quiet times kitchen facilities can be provided for those wishing to self cater. Hostel beds cost €23 including continental breakfast (€17 without breakfast).

Boghill is a sustainable complex with a strong Environmental policy set in 50 acres of land on the edge of the Burren in Co Clare. The land includes organic vegetable and fruit gardens, a nature trail, a stone circle, a wildlife pond, a reed labyrinth, a chicken coop and pig pen, an orchard, and several recently planted native woodland areas. Our mantra is reduce, reuse, recycle and our ethos is based on creating an environmentally sustainable business having a minimal impact on the earth. All meals are vegetarian and as much food as possible is sourced from our organic vegetable garden, fruit beds and orchard. All these areas are fertilised with our own compost and horse manure and managed without the use of pesticides or other chemicals. Two small cob structures are in the process of being built in preparation for the construction of an ecological living centre made out of cob.

Regular residential workshops include Eco Experience, Traditional Irish Music, Yoga, Ceramics, Sustainable building techniques, Five Rhythms Dance, Singing, Tribal Spirit drumming, Sweatlodges and much more. There is also a programme for school students including a range of activities for environmental education. In addition the venue is available to hire for workshops, private functions, conferences and school retreats.
