The time that I spent in Creagh House was incredible. I had so much fun dancing even though I was a little bit lost with the step. I enjoyed exploring the house, walking around the river and the forest, and swimming in the lake.
I have been living in Ireland for almost two years, and this was the first time that I could experience the Irish culture. It is not an judgemental environment where all the people involved in this community will encourage you to be yourself and connect with your artistic side.
Annie and Pete thank you so much for having me, I hope to see you very soon!!

My wife and I had a great experience at Creagh House. Annie and Peter are lovely and they always helped us to feel comfortable and happy. We learned a lot in that period and we had amazing moments working, dancing, listening traditional music or just sharing informations. We recommend this experience, you Will feel part of the Creagh House family. Thank you for all Annie and Peter. All the best for you.

Our experience in one word: incredible. It was two weeks of great cultural immersion: we learned a lot about Irish culture, learned traditional dances, we did trails, lake bathing, joyful nights with lots of music, ate traditional dishes, met new people, we practiced English, etc. The work is important, but nothing too difficult, they need help with gardening, painting, general repairs and cleaning. If you want a complete worldpackers experience, Creagh House is the ideal place for you. Our thanks for everything Annie and Peter, you are special and will be forever in our heart.

I loved my time in Creagh house; went there thanks to the reviews of other travelers and the place exceeded my expectation 😊. Creagh house is close to town but surrounded by green and sheep and just a short walk from Mask lake and the woods. Here you work but you also cook, dance, listen to live music and laughs lots 🥳
I felt at home with Annie and Peter, enjoyed many talks with them and the rest of the people in the house. If you want to rest from the city, if you want to learn from a different culture or if you just enjoy building works, this is your place! 🤟

We arrived in the middle of December, my boyfriend and I. We were very well received by our hosts. With Annie and Petter we learn words in English and Irish, about cooking and seasoning. Annie Mastercheff prepared breakfast, sweet and savory breads, lunch and dinner with vegetables, hot and delicious foods. Working hours and tasks are as described. Great musicians, they taught us to dance with a lot of patience and joy. Luckily we were at Christmas and it was incredible, everything! Thank you very much Annie, Petter and Franchesco, the cat, we feel at home!
