Mulvarra House

We are thrilled to be opening our doors again on July 1st!

2022 continues to be our busiest year

It feels so good to see the the start of this great reopening and recovery from the global pandemic. We found the stop start nature of the pandemic exhausting but touch wood it does feel like we have put the time of lockdowns behind us. More and more people are coming out every week to join the yoga classes and we have already had two fabulous retreat  weekends since reopening after Christmas

As we are all still learning how to live with COVID 19, we will constantly make sure that the measures we are adopting to help stop the further spread of the virus are in line with the most up-to-date guidelines. We have placed more information on our current policies and response to the situation here.
We would ask for your understanding and cooperation in helping us to ensure that we can continue to operate safely. Above all, we want for you to be able to feel that you can come to Mulvarra to experience the beauty and peace of St Mullins with complete ease of mind.

Like everybody else, we were hoping that the start of 2021 would be different. Unfortunately we have had to make the decision to shut our doors for the third time. Due to the massive uncertainty around the pandemic we simple do not know when we will be able to reopen. As soon as it is possible to resume events we will be back and meanwhile we will try to make best use of the time in maintenance and upkeep

Discover Mulvarra House - a new workshop and retreat centre on the River Barrow

Running workshops and retreats year round

Mulvarra House is a new workshop and retreat centre located in the village of St Mullins on the River Barrow. We run weekend workshops and retreats primarily in the areas of yoga/meditation, traditional arts and crafts, and food. Located right on the border of Carlow, Kilkenny, and Wexford, we are an hour and a half away from Dublin. Waterford and Kilkenny are practically on our doorstep.

Your hosts, Tim and Linda, have created a wonderfully peaceful and relaxed environment at Mulvarra. While at Mulvarra, you will get to experience a truly magical landscape which surrounds the ancient monastic site of St Mullins, the jewel of the River Barrow. Whether you come to Mulvarra to practice yoga, unleash your creativity, paint, meditate, or just stay and rest and relax, you will come away feeling replenished and revived.

Guest Reviews

Everything was amazing, the food, the location, the house, the hosts and of course the Yoga with Brian. (Linda and Tim), thank you for making the weekend so enjoyable. When is the recipe book coming out??? Thank you again. Will definitely be back in the summer x Siobhan Siobhan Retreat participant I have just come down to earth after a magical weekend yoga retreat in Mulvarra House. It is my second retreat in Mulvarra and it will not be the last. Everything was perfect from the incredibly peaceful yoga studio, to the most comfortable bed, to the heart warming vegetarian food. The hosts Tim and Linda make Mulvarra house what it is, a truly magical space. Thank you so much 😊 Alison Retreat Participant
