How many people do you cater for at OAIM retreats?
Places on an OAIM retreat are limited to 12 maximum per retreat.
Do you cater for beginners?
No. Students are expected to have a good grasp of the basics of their instrument, unless the course is specifically geared to beginners.
What is the age requirement?
The age requirement to come on an OAIM retreat unaccompanied by an adult is 18. Younger students are welcome as long as they are accompanied by an adult. The adult is not required to come to the classes, but needs to be present for the evening entertainment. (Is the under 18 unaccompanied by adult true?)
Do you cater for vegetarians or specific dietary needs?
Yes. You need to let us know when filling out the booking form and we can notify The Rowan Tree regarding the specific details.
What are the directions to Ennis?
Shannon Airport To Ennis Town
What’s the weather like?
Come prepared with rain coats and woolly jumpers. In October the weather can be very changeable from crisp and sunny, to wet and windy.
What do I need to bring?
Your instrument, notebook, paper and recording device.
Will I be sharing a room?
Prices are based on room sharing, however, if you prefer, you can pay a single room supplement. If you are traveling alone and would rather save money and share, we will try to pair you up with another student of the same gender. Contact us for details.
What time can I check in?
You can check into your room anytime after 2pm.
