I had an amazing time working at the Creagh house. Annie and Peter are wonderful people and made us feel at home as soon as we got there. Everyone we met was friendly and included us in all the events. The dancing is incredibly fun! It could be challenging at times but Annie and Peter are the best teachers! I hated leaving but I know I'll come back to visit!

I love this place so much, it is amazing. Annie and Peter are so nice and I spent many evenings and car rides just chatting with them and I throughly enjoyed hearing their perspective on things, they are such lovely people and a wealth of knowledge. They make everyone feel so welcome here and it truly feels like a big family with members flowing through the house daily each one excited to meet and get to know you. I also must mention the dancing. It was so fun and lively. Learning the dances can be challenging at first but everyone is so supportive and Annie is a wonderful teacher. I loved it

With my partner we did our first volunteering at Creagh House and we loved it! Annie, Peter and all their family and friends are very kind, they invited us to all their activities which helped us to get to know the culture and practice our English. Creagh House is pure magic and creativity, both for the structure and for the atmosphere. The tasks were according to the needs that were presented. We thank you very much for the welcome! <3

Fue nuestro primer voluntariado y nos encantó! Annie, Peter y toda su familia y amigos fueron muy amables y acogedores , la casa y el lugar son hermosos :)

Annie and Peter are wonderful people, from the first moment they made us feel at home and the tasks to be carried out are simple. If you visit Creagh house you have to be prepared to live an incredible experience, you will fully immerse yourself in their culture learning their dances and appreciating incredible music sessions, and meeting wonderful people. Jumping into a frozen lake is something we will never forget :) We will miss the great Creagh family and will definitely be back.
