As Crann Og Eco Farm is a Gold Certified Ecotourism venue (Ecotourism Ireland & Global Sustainable Tourism Council), they offer leading brand eco-friendly soaps, shampoos, and conditioners on site for your convenience.

ReNature retreats are multi-faceted and cultivate a heart-based experience of life whereby the mind is regarded as a tool, rather than the author of your story. Yoga, meditation, and breath work sessions will be sprinkled throughout the duration of the retreat, led by the experienced instructor Marion Edler.

Deep nature connection provides the purest and deepest source of wellness. Nature connection happens by opening up to the senses rather than entertaining the mind. Since the ill-effects of the technological era have become obvious, the essential need of humans for direct nature connection can no longer go unacknowledged.

Working with nature’s shapes and materials is more than being creative. It is releasing and relaxing, and research demonstrates, it is directly effective on physical, mental and emotional well-being. Be bathed in the sounds and vibrations of Tibetan singing bowls, mantras, gongs, shakers, and energy chime bars. Let go and feel your body, mind and soul relax and harmonize to the frequencies of the instruments. These vibrations help to rejuvenate your body, inducing a deep, meditative state.

Crann Og Eco Farm is situated in southern county Galway, near the border of County Clare. It is a rural property and an operating small holding eco-farm, some 12 minutes drive from the town of Gort.

Regionally, Crann Og Eco Farm is located in the Lowlands of The Burren National Park and Geopark, which includes the popular tourist attractions of the Cliffs of Moher and the Wild Atlantic way. Crann Og will form part of the new spur of the Wild Atlantic Way to be announced in 2017, to take in the literary and monastic history of the region.

Catering for Unplug & ReNature is totally vegetarian and the organizers will do their utmost to accommodate all dietary regimes. Prepared for you by our very own resident staff, all meals are prepared using locally sourced organic ingredients or those grown in Crann Og Eco Farm's own gardens.

You will delight in the food we prepare with love and care each day. the approach to catering for the events is that the food prepared for the guests should be as nourishing as our reconnection to nature. In fact it is an essential component of ReNature being one source of health and energy required for the physical body to nurture and repair itself daily.

The food combined with the energy absorbed from the natural surroundings is essential to a deeper, more regenerating experience.

    "It was the most incredible weekend - the farm and surroundings are beautiful, the welcome is warm, the food is delicious. I left feeling like a weight had been lifted, and would recommend the retreat to anyone who was open to a new experience, to friendship and reflection and connecting to the world around them. The farm would be a lovely place to be and to stay even without the retreat aspect. Thank you again!"

    "Before I knew that I was going to participate in the retreat I connected with the spirit of the land at Crann Og, and asked for support if this was meant to be. The images were strong, the calling was clear. From there on everything fell into place. Every email contact was a joy. When I was shown the venue I felt so welcomed and connected easily with the land and the beautiful animals. The tent has been a palace, like every place on this land it carries the loving energy of committed people with a strong vision and doing their labour from the heart. There could not have been a better place for this. I am deeply grateful and see Crann Og blooming and turning into a nature therapy centre. "
