E.O.M. (Essence of Mulranny) Art Retreats

Where Nature, Culture and Creativity Meet

A place where the senses meet the elements, inspiring curiosity and creativity through environmentally sensitive engagements and hands on learning.


We invite you to participate in one of the many programs offered in the creative arts. The Nature and Culture programs vary, but always engage something unique to the local area on the west coast of Ireland. Workshops range from one to seven days and our teachers, both local and international, are most accomplished in their fields.

Accommodations and meals provided by local establishments become part of the experience, and private bus tours take guests exploring on Mayo’s Wild Atlantic Way on ‘off the beaten track’ excursions.

Creative inspiration is not hard to find when you are surrounded by great scenic beauty, guided by talented teachers and supported in a nurturing environment.

Unleash the Painter in you,

with Judy Wise

May 16th to 23rd 2020



Thank you for your amazing hospitality. I already had high expectations since it was not my first trip and unbelievably even they were surpassed!! 
— Eimear Brennan, Dublin
I read somewhere that “The way to do, is to be” and I think it sums up my  “Essence of Mulranny” experience. At the retreat I could truly just “be” in the creative space, in an environment that is exceptionally inspiring, nourishing and fun! As a result I was super productive and creative!
— Helen Wright, Seahorse Studio, UK
I can’t thank you enough for your incredibly warm, from the heart hospitality.
I have never felt more welcome, from waking up, to the incredibly tasty meals in the evening, from taking us around the area to all the little things you did to share your special place; the beaches, the walks, the conversations.
Thanks again for making this trip so memorable. We had lots of laughs.
It does not get better than that!

Those who want to live meaningfully and well must help enrich the lives of others, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all...
-Call it power of collectivity...
-Call it a principle of success...
-Call it a law of life.
The fact is, none of us truly wins, until we all win!!
