"Amazing experience"

The overall atmosphere created by the staff is fantastic. They are lovely people.

The accommodation was amazing and comfortable.

The whole experience is personalised while also sharing it with other visitors and the staff.

"Creacon relaxing weekend "

The staff are incredible and did everything to make me feel welcome from the second I arrived. They were able to cater to my dietary restrictions and were always on hand to help with any questions I had. I had Yoga classes, mediation, massages and a tea leaf reading. Jonathan, Phyl, Suzanne and Sandra were really good and know their craft extremely well. Veronica at reception and the other staff were also amazing. I will be back soon. I can't wait to visit again.

"Interesting Experience"

The location, accomodation (very high spec) were super & good value for money.

The food was great, very tasty though expected a few more smoothies or healthy drinks provided as part of the retreat.

The retreat part itself was interesting. The Yoga sessions were good.

Very much enjoyed the film night with a glass of Prosecco and meeting the other participants. We all bonded well and had lots of laughs!

"Ideal for a mindfulness break"

The staff are most exquisite including the chef and are the true heart of this place. A truly remarkable experience. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a well deserved break away from the chaos of life.

"Celtic Awakening Retreat: Revival! "

From the minute I drove in the gateway I felt an amazing energy about this place. Not only are the surroundings in nature absolutely stunning, the lodge nestled away in what feels like another world, but the overall vibe and welcome by the people who work here was incredible. I've attended a few retreats but nowhere near as beautiful and friendly as this. In addition I was very happily surprised to see how luxurious the rooms were and how pristine the property is as well as the gardens. A perfect blend of luxury combined with character and a feeling of zen as if it was your own peaceful home.

Marcela was our group leader for the weekend and she was fabulous, funny and engaging! She made everyone feel like it was their home for the weekend and was consistently open and warm to everyone. Her knowledge of spirituality and wellbeing in general shone a bright light on all of us and we all agreed that her guided meditations were rejuvenating and reviving. Her energy brought the group a sense of togetherness with a non judgemental approach where everyone felt at ease to speak and open up.

The retreat was a lovely mix of yoga, guided meditations, fantastic food, garden walks, infrared saunas, and peaceful sleeps. A couple of us even booked an extra night as we couldn't tear ourselves away from the place. :) Highly recommend Creacon Wellness Lodge to anyone who is looking for a bit of calm and relaxation in a magical environment. I hope to return very soon!

"Amazing experience "

Creacon was even better than what I was expecting. Everything was great from the food, to my room, to all the instructors and the staff. There is love, passion and kindness, I felt nourished after a few nights. I'll definitely go there again for another retreat.

"Heaven on Earth" the most fantastic place on earth... a little piece of heaven ....and now my home from home... I am so happy that I did the retreat from Friday 16th August to Sunday 18th August 2019 with Marcela who just made me feel so at home, and who also magically re introduced me to myself, healed me, enlightened me and who brought me on so many journeys of discovery through her lessons and her fantastical meditations & healing, that I have simply never felt so exhilarated, cleansed and so comforted in what i have learnt, experienced and practised over this amazing weekend, in my entire life!

Additional media pieces she produced and referenced from Creacon founder Derek O Neill, and from Taylor Bolt aswell as the informative Tibetan yoga workshops from Jonathan.... only heightened my absolutely life changing experience.

I also opted for an Oracle reading from Sandra which gave me so much insight and also answered so many questions I had.....

Creacon, MY little piece of heaven on earth, you have made me a better person and enabled me to see such insight. thank you from the bottom of my heart and I look forward to being with you again soon xxx

"Wonderful magical energy to revitalize body and soul"

Wonderful place, from moment you arrive, everyone is so pleasant, happy, warm, friendly. Nothing too much trouble. Food was DIVINE. Sooo tasty whilst low calorie and healthy, AND filling!! They should do a cookbook.the energy healers are ALL incredible, the energy treatments are transformative and the meditations are also other worldly. The room was 5 star.

"Fabulous retreat "

Creacon Wellness retreat really is a little piece of heaven. From the moment I arrived I was welcomed by the team and they were really friendly and helpful. The accommodation is lovely and the yoga and meditation classes are great, really good mix of instructors. I highly recommend getting the Ultimate Massage from Suzanne - she's amazing. Great place to go for some time out, R&R, whatever you need :)

"A beautiful, peaceful and loving environment "

Staff, accommodation, the rose room, actually everything about the place was beautiful. But particularly the staff. Everyone of them were so kind, respectful and friendly.

"Worth everything"

I spent July 15-18th 2019 at the Creacon resort. I had no idea what to expect, but my time spent there was worth everything. The entire experience is centered around making people feel warmly welcomed and through this environment it becomes easy to connect with others and yourself. It is important to mention everyone was helpful and responsive even before I arrived, while I was there and in preparation for leaving. Service is exemplary at Creacon.

One small note, but not worthy of 👎🏻

I found the yoga to be more for beginners, but I enjoyed the instructors and experience all the same.


from France, July 2019


My experience at Creacon Wellness Retreat was overwhelming positive. I stayed a week at the retreat, and I think that was the perfect amount of time. It can take a while to transition into having a different structure for your day - one where you focus on your body, your breath, and your mind and well-being. My time there was really a journey. It took a few days to just unwind and feel totally relaxed, and then some things started coming out of the woodwork that I could tell I needed to work through. My recommendation would be: if you encounter anything that makes you uncomfortable (such as self-love, letting go of guilt, etc), don't shy away from it, but confront it and schedule a one-on-one session or two to help get to the bottom of it. They have great people on staff here who are easy to talk to and qualified to help you!

Speaking of the staff, they were amazing. From the instructors to the desk clerks to the restaurant staff, everyone seemed very genuine and caring. After a while we all felt like one big happy family. The staff often eats with the guests at a communal dinner table and we just had a lot of fun joking around and laughing.

The environment at the retreat is very relaxed, quiet, and homey. The gardens are lovely and there are places to lie in the yard and soak up some sun which is more prevalent there in the Southeast than the rest of Ireland. The food is fantastic. The environment is free from irritants and the water is great.

"What an amazing place to stay"

Everything, this truely was the perfect holiday break. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, the gardens are beautiful, the food just so delicious and the people couldn't be nicer.

The classes are casual and relaxing, and the perfect opportunity for anyone to calm their inner chatter. I highly recommend at least 2-3 nights to get the most out of the experience.

"First yoga retreat "

From the moment we parked the car on a cold wet morning, we all felt instantly at home. The gardens are beautiful and when you enter everything is calm but filled with beautiful things everywhere you look. Salvo was really helpful- given we were 4 hours early - and got us all sorted and into a yoga class that was just starting. Jonathon, Marcela, Suzanne and Phil then spent 4 days soothing our minds and bodies. I thought that I did meditation but this is meditation on a whole new level. The food is just delicious,so wholesome that we didn’t need anything else , even though there are also plenty of goodies in offer. Lauren was a fabulous host behind the coffee bar and was always ready with a new idea to try. This break went so far beyond my expectations that I can’t really put it into words. We will most definitely be back.

"Rejuvenated "

The authenticity of the people. Their joy and generosity in what they do. The restoration of optimism it gave me and many lovely exchanges with other guests.

"Detox made enjoyable"

Everyone was very supportive. It did help that I was the only guest staying over the week I was there which made it even more special. I decided to try treatments I hadn’t experienced before and loved them - bamboo massage, ultimate massage, Rising Star Healing, and other treatments I’d had before and still love. The location was so peaceful and quiet. The staff and even other daily guests were pleasant, happy, and supportive. The room I stayed in was pleasant and I felt like I was at home. I truly hope to make this an annual event, even if I’m not the only overnight guest other times.

"I loved everything about my experience in Creacon."

It's a beautiful creative caring place to be. The staff are special kind and helpful. I got to experience lots of different types of meditation yoga and healing experiences. If I was to choose one experience that topped all my experiences it would have to be the ultimate massage. It was incredible.

"This is an amazing secret of the world. Everything amazing!"

Everything is created to take you to a relaxed state of being including mind body and spirit. Including the water you in take and get a batch with. The therapies they have are so amazing and powerful. I’m still a little at shock of how lucky i got to have fallen in this magical place. The rising star therapy is a MUST! I’ve never been in something that powerful. Every single person of the staff is very special, the attention you have is so muche love and caring and pamepering.

"Refreshingly amazing!"

The food was healthy and delicious. The room i stayed in was comfy and beautiful. Loved it! The staff and even the other people visiting were so kind and friendly. It was like they were my family. The grounds are so serene and lovely. I enjoyed sitting outside by the beautiful flowers and there were plenty of cozy sitting places (benches, tables, quaint seating). The countryside was just so beautiful and serene. I would absolutely visit again! Thanks Creacon for a refreshing and wonderful stay!!

Where do I begin.. I knew straight away while I was driving up the driveway that I loved this place already. Creacon is so beautiful. I received a lovely warm welcome and a complimentary juice upon arrival. My bedroom was stunning and so comfortable. The food was absolutely delicious, staff were so friendly and would do anything for you. Everywhere was immaculate! Words can't describe how much this place means to me already and this was my first time staying there. To be honest I wasn't expecting much as I had never done a retreat before. But my goodness I benefited so much from staying here! Marcella is an absolute gem, she is such a beautiful soul inside and out. I really benefited from her meditations and workshop, I released a lot of emotions that I had built up for so long. Creacon is what I imagine heaven to be like. It is a little hidden gem. I'm already planning my next visit in the summer! Creacon has my heart now and I'll be forever thankful for the amazing experience I had. I'll most certainly be coming back here for the rest of my life. Thank you so much to everyone in Creacon for making me feel at home and for allowing me to have the most amazing, special weekend of my life. I'll never forget it.

"Geweldige en rustgevende plek"

Prachtige omgeving, schoon, één en al gastvrijheid, geweldige kamers en sanitair, heel aardige mensen en ik had een fijn programma. Het was perfect; niet te vol maar wel genoeg om tot rust en jezelf te komen. Er is veel oog voor detail om werkelijk alles in dienst van je retraite te laten zijn. Echt een oase van rust en in het algemeen enorm aan te raden.
