Dzogchen Beara Buddhist Retreat Centre

Dzogchen Beara Buddhist Retreat Centre


A spot of serenity and grandeur on the tip of the peninsula. Follow a windy road to the retreat center built on the edge of the cliff. It is open to all. The center is under the spiritual guidance of Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. They offer a year-round program of retreats and seminars. If you seek to rest in this tranquil environment, they offer cottage or hostel accommodation and twice daily-guided meditation sessions.

My experience

A place I would like to come back to spend more time. You sit on what seems the edge of the ocean and take off from the world.
