The Boghill Centre is a stunning residential venue incorporating a hostel, B&B with ensuite rooms and two multifunctional activity halls. Situated in a natural bogland setting in the north of Co. Clare with a quiet and secluded atmosphere, it is the perfect place to relax, unwind and renew your spirit. We welcome hostellers, B&Bers and groups as well as catering for workshops, courses, field trips, conferences etc and for individual/group retreats and holidays.
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 , 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.
