Creacon is such a wonderful place to get back to your self while being nurtured in a peaceful and loving environment. The property is beautiful, surrounded by many beautiful gardens. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the food is amazing! The wellness services are really amazing, unique and special. All in all lots of fun to be had. I always leave feeling recharged and filled with joy. Definitely a favorite destination!!!

I cannot say enough about our stay at Creacon Lodge Healing Center!

Visiting from New York, my husband and I stayed at Creacon for a quiet, restful, romantic long weekend winter getaway while our 3 children stayed with relatives. We stayed in "Gatehouse 1" and everything was just perfect. The room was spotlessly clean, spacious, and the bed extremely comfortable. The shower/bathroom area was also roomy, well-lit, and the water was hot. Everything about our room was simply perfect. Our room was separate, but just steps, from the Main Lodge, which made for a wonderful, peaceful, secluded stay. We ended up being caught in a rare, major snowstorm and this was the perfect place to be hunkered down in the snow. It was magical.

Ohhhhh....and the FOOD!!! Oh my, the food was incredible. Meals were included with the cost of the room and are utterly healthy and delicious. I cannot rave enough about the chef! Meals are communal and we sat at a Family Style communal table. This allowed us to get to know the other guests staying at the inn and it was quite a treat! One of our favorite dishes was the Guinness Stew and the potatoes which were cooked to perfection. Yum! And… I discovered my most favorite dessert that I have ever tasted, Banoffee Pie. It was heavenly.
Also, the coffees, teas and snacks served in the charming little cafe right next to the dining room were always consistently fantastic. Our favorite was the Mocha Coffee and the "Dandy" which was a coffee substitution drink (you would never know, it tastes just like coffee!) I also ordered a very special tea that the woman who served it said was picked by monks in the Himalayan Mountains. It was delicious and had a quality that was ethereal.

The Main House is charming, warm and welcoming. They have a large sitting room with a piano, knitting supplies, books, and a fireplace that always had a peat and wood fire burning (that was one of my favorite touches!). It was so relaxing sitting in this room watching the never ending stream of birds feed on the snow covered feeder right outside the old-world black-paned windows. There are two other rooms for relaxation and quiet but this was my favorite.

We also enjoyed spending time in the art room doing a few crafts and the meditation hall. Since this is a retreat center, they have a large hall devoted to contemplation, quiet and restful reflection. Off to the side of this room are a small library and a small gift shop where the proceeds from the sale of goods are donated to various charities.
In the meditation hall we took advantage of a yoga class being offered during our stay. It was gentle and challenging all at the same time but the instructor, Jonathan, was patient, very knowledgeable and helped us through the moves with great expertise.

While we were here we indulged in a massage and a couple's hot sauna. This was another huge highlight for me! The lodge has a separate house for these services which, again, makes for a quiet, private and relaxing experience. Our masseuse, Suzanne, worked nearly every locked and sore muscle and used hot stones on my back. Incredible, incredible massage! The sauna and the room was clean and bottled water (for a nominal fee) and towels were provided. Relaxing music provided by a CD player rounded out the wonderful hours spent here.

The grounds were covered in snow and we spent some time walking in the charming tree walk area.
All of our needs were attended to and the staff was helpful, courteous and super attentive.
We love our stay at Creacon and will be back again. A perfect romantic, couple's getaway!

Room Tip: Choose the Gatehouse room for a romantic couple's stay.

This is a magical place! If you are looking for a deeply relaxing time, wanting to connect to conscious people or just take some time to renew your spirit, then Creacon Lodge is the place for you. I have come back to this heavenly abode many times. Located in the dreamy Irish countryside, you would not believe what great food they have and customer service is off the charts! They also offer many different types of wellness packages including massage (best ever), energy healing sessions (I highly recommend a Rising Star), and even an infared Sauna (do it every time I visit there!) They also have this beautiful meditation hall, you literally feel your body go into stillness the second you walk in. I love this place! So worth the journey, especially if you are looking for a different type of vacation.

I can't help but keep returning to Creacon Lodge. Something about the gorgeous setting, the people, the beautiful energy of the place. It's pure love. So hard to describe that! Highly recommend...even the food is top notch, and made with love.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. Best to call and speak with Michelle or Jonathan about which room is best suit...
