The private isle of Lambay is proud to present five beautiful, highly bespoke retreats for up to 10 participants per retreat. Offering local residents as well as travellers the chance to visit and soak up the island’s magic and natural beauty.
Lambay is a designated site of community importance, as well as a national heritage site thanks to its unique historical architecture; and a protected wildlife sanctuary for breeding seals and seabirds, including puffins. It is also home to fallow deer and wild wallabies, alongside the Baring family who have been the island’s guardians since 1904.
Retreat participants stay in the Whitehouse, a stunning 10-bedroom house designed by Lutyens in 1933 for the Barings, and recently renovated to include beautifully appointed bathrooms, off-grid heating and hot water and the most comfortable beds.
Retreats are designed around the island’s unique offering as a safe and peaceful haven from our busy daily lives, offering time and space to reconnect with our creativity and the natural environment. Visitors are personally hosted by the resident Barings, who work closely with the retreat facilitators to provide an unforgettable experience on their island home.
