Dzogchen Beara is now open and is operating in line with Government health guidelines. Please read on to see what we are offering now and in the near future.
Traveling from Overseas and Affected Areas
Dzogchen Beara requests all those traveling from affected areas (and those in local lockdown) to follow all guidelines in relation to Covid-19. We are unable to offer facilities for guests to self-isolate partially or fully. If you are planning to stay with us and are traveling from an affected area (inside or outside Ireland) or have traveled abroad recently we request that both guests and visitors self-isolate prior to coming to Dzogchen Beara.
If you live in an area that is currently in local lockdown then in line with government guidelines we request that you do not travel. We are happy to refund you should that be the case but would appreciate as much notice as possible if you need to cancel your booking.
For most recent guidelines and to check current status in Ireland please refer to the Resilience and Recovery 2020-2021: Plan for Living with COVID-19 here.
