I had the most rejuvenating couple of days at the elbow room escape. From the comfortable beds, delicious food, coal fired outdoor hot tub, woodland walks and more I would highly recommend and hope to be back very soon!!

We had a lovely break here for the Gincident. The cabins were luxurious- loved the fluffy robes! The gin making was great fun and the yoga hit the perfect balance between exercise and relaxation. The food was lovely and tasty. Generally, the whole vibe was a lovely mix of well organised and relaxed and I’d love to go back! More...

Fantastic space for both yoga classes and yoga teacher training. Best teachers and overall best yoga studio I've been to. The monthly unlimited pass is great value, and their lunch time post yoga soup is always delicious!

Simply Amazing just to escape from the city into the green, listen to the birds sing, smell the flowers.The view just breathtaking. Children were so happy with so much outdoor space and a lovely swing, not to even mention mystical walks in the forest just steps away from the rooms.Bedrooms fantastic too! More...

As a yoga newbie, The Elbowroom is THE place to go. A beautiful selection of studios, hardwood floors, whitewashed walls and always helpful and reliable front desk staff. The variety of classes I've taken, from Beginners to Hatha to Vinyasa Flow to Candlelit have been brilliant. A lovely way to get introduced to the wonderful world of yoga! More...

I don't exaggerate when I say that The Elbowroom is my favorite spot in Dublin. There I did my first Yoga course and fell in love with the practice 1 year ago. Since then I've been visiting regularly to attend Hatha, Yin, and Vinyasa yoga classes, as well as weekend workshops. I love their Community classes Monday to Friday at lunch time, which include a seriously delicious and nutritious bowl of soup after the class. Apart from Yoga, I've tried their Pilates classes (they're also great!) and their clinic, where I went for a Neuromuscular Activation treatment and Bev got rid of my chronic pain in just one session (I'll be forever grateful!). If this wasn't enough, they have a lovely cafe with tasty vegan treats and a little shop where you can get books and yoga props. But the best part of The Elbowroom is, without doubt, their people. When I visit (and it's often!) I never feel like I'm in a business but being part of a truly beautiful community. More...

as a yoga teacher myself, the teachers here are of great standard. I don't live near the studio but I make the effort to go because of them they're so worth it and so is the beautiful space Elbowroom have provided. I love going to classes here, there's a great variety and it always feels a real treat. Recommend it highly More...

We had a truly great time at the Gincident event. Gin, Yoga and wood fired hot-tub! What's not to like! Its hard to sum up the Elbow Room Escape in a few words. Its a place like no other I've been to in Ireland. The location is beautiful. Surrounded by mountains, lovely walks, etc. The accommodation is top notch. Coziest beds ever. Food at Elbow Room Escape is not fancy; no little plates of nibbles or swooshes of sauce etc. Its gorgeous, hearty, Veggie food!! Home-made, locally sourced, organic where possible and ridiculously tasty, Maybe its all the fresh air or something :) What makes this place unique though are its people. Thank you Amanda and Lisa for being great hosts, great company and fab Gin connoisseurs ;) You can bet we will be back ! Elaine, Louise and Julie! More...

Just had my first session with the incredible Bev Porrino. I've spent thousands on my back, seeing oesteopaths, chiropractors, the lot. Never have I felt so amazing as I do after an hour with Bev. I'm astonished at how different and pain free I feel after just one session. Her understanding of the human body is beyond incredible. I wanted to put her in my pocket and bring her home with me. Left the elbowroom and called a number of friends to recommend them to her. She's a genius, like no one I've ever met. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED More...

There is so much to love about the elbowroom. I did prenatal and postnatal classes in yoga and pilates. The teachers are so supportive. I also did my yoga for kids teacher training here. The course was engaging, intensive and appropriate to give me the confidence to teach children. The only negative is that with a 20 month old and teaching I don't get to visit as much as I would like. More...

I have wanted to go on a yoga retreat for such a long time, but was a little nervous I would be out of my depth as a yoga newbie. I was also worried that a severe detox would be a shock to the system so close after the Christmas 'celebrations'! But I needn't have worried, I can honestly say I had the perfect weekend; the balance of chill time, yoga, hiking, chatting and enjoying the most amazing veggie food (I am NOT a vegetarian, but have carried on not eating meat) was all just right. I can not recommend the Elbow Room Escape enough, I had so much fun, meeting some great people and talking nonsense in front of the wood burner, or over a g&t, feeling so relaxed and grateful for the whole experience. The retreat itself is beautiful, the room was lovely, and the bed was very comfortable. There is even a hot tub, filled with fresh sprig water from the mountain stream, and heated over a log fire for 5hrs (!!!). Thank you to Caitriona for the out-of-this-world food, Alex for the best massage of my life, Amanda Marren for everything, and everyone else in the Elbow Room Escape family. I will be back very soon.

We returned yesterday from a wonderful weekend Escape with you in beautiful Donard. From start to finish we enjoyed every moment. The food was delicious, the rooms so cozy, not to mention our fantastic host, Amanda, was so welcoming & genuine. The yoga classes were the perfect level for our mixed ability, & we enjoyed each session. We both had massages from the talented Alex on Saturday afternoon, and our quick dip in the outdoor hot tub was a real treat at the end of a lovely day. We will definitely be back. Thank you Amanda.

Still enjoying the benefits of my stay at the elbow room escape last weekend. I smile each time I think of all the amazing people I shared time with there, the food is sumptuous , surroundings simply beautiful. Having been there last November I had no doubt I was in for a treat again however this recent visit far exceeded expectations. Kate, Amanda, Caitriona, Lisa thank you all for taking such good care of us & creating such a wonderful haven to escape to, the only drawback is when its time to leave......can't wait for my next visit xxxx More...

Had the best weekend at Elbow Room Escape catchin up with a bunch of friends. Food was so delicious and accommodation so comfortable . Amanda was tge perfect host, very in tune with our needs and when relaxation was needed after our hike, she deferred yoga by an hour to give us that time to chill a bit more. The yoga was just right too, not too hardcore but really felt it in a good way after. The hot tub and fire pit were a perfect way to chill on the Sat night and everyone really loved that. Definitely on my to-come-back-to list... whether with family, friends, as a couple or with kids - this place won't disappoint More...

Oh my goodness...where to start? At the beginning I suppose. Everything about The elbowroom Escape is perfect. The beds really are 5* quality, I slept so well. ..and spent most of the weekend either sleeping or reading my book, all cosied up while it rained outside. Amanda is an absolute gem, so full of energy and kindness, I don't know how she keeps it going all weekend! The food is yum, generous and easy on the belly. For our Do F*** All weekend there was plenty of goodies too, snacks we could buy and the occasional beer if we fancied. Then of course, the gin. Sweet Jesus, the gin. Such a treat and prepared with care and flourish. I have to mention the hot tub too - heated by a wood fire that Amanda tended to all day on Saturday. Sitting in that gorgeous water, gin in hand, taking in the night sky - can't imagine anything much better than that! We also had the pleasure of meeting Susan (masseur from heaven) and Kate who's part of the team running the show. Loveliest people on the planet. I will be back, have no doubt, though maybe a smidge less gin this time! GO...you won't regret it. More...
