Creagh House

It's fun being at Creagh during the summer, there's lots of people staying, music and dance, and walks in the woods, and sometimes canoeing. We like to meet people from other cultures. Quieter in the winter, and colder but we generally still have fun 😊 In winter you should be prepared for cold temperatures in the house, we generally live at 14 deg centigrade, except for the main living room which has a stove. Dancing keeps you warm!

You will be treated as one of the family! We work hard but not for long hours. We eat together at least once a day, and sometimes go out in the evening together. Volunteers sleep in a large dormitory room, with up to 4 other people of any gender. We do have a tiny mezzanine available sometimes for couples. Routine is that you will work 4 days a week for 6 hours each day though we can be flexible, for instance if you are working on line you can distribute your 25 hours a week so that you can still keep up with your remote working. We expect you to be flexible too, sometimes you will be asked to work a weekend shift, or start early. Work is all physical, cleaning, ironing , changing beds, gardening, painting, construction, emptying compost toilet cleaning geese pen, chopping wood, stacking turf etc etc

I think words fail me when I try to describe my time at Creagh House. I truly felt like part of the family. Annie, Pete, and Gus made me feel so welcome and comfortable. They were always checking in to see if I was happy, asking if I was tired, and telling me to take a 10-minute break. They made sure we had eaten and had plans to explore the beautiful region. You'll basically be living in peace and quiet, only hearing the sheep, cows, and chickens. I’m really going to miss everything! And of course, the interaction with Irish culture was incredible.

I don't think the place has the minimum conditions of habitability. The house is basically in semi-ruins. Everything is very dirty and dusty. The kitchen is basically unhealthy.
The bedroom is messy (that's the least of it), but it's also quite dirty. And the jewel in the crown is the bathroom. It has no ceiling and the walls are full of green mould up to waist height (there are cleaner stables).
In short, when I saw that, I left.I feel sorry for Gus, because he seemed like a very nice guy, but I don't think that house is habitable.

It clearly states in the description that part of the house is still under renovation. It's not perfect but that is the reason we receive volunteers We receive many volunteers, if you look back at the reviews you'll see how many people have given us 5 star reviews and had a fantastic time here. I'm sorry it didn't suit you, but your opinion is not everybodys

Je suis resté un mois dans la CreaghHouse, c'était une très belle expérience ! Il faut certes s'adapter à l'absence de chauffage et ne pas être très à cheval sur la propreté mais les hôtes sont incroyablement chaleureux ! J'ai appris la danse irlandaise, j'ai participé à mon premier ceili ! Les tâches sont très faciles, on ne dépasse jamais les heures indiquées dans l'annonce ! Merci pour ce séjour, Annie, Pete, Gus !

We would strongly advice people not to go there! The water has dangerous amounts of lead in it, the food is all expired, dirty and mouldy. Our accommodation was awful, the room was very dusty and full of spiders, the sheets were very dirty and there was black mould on the walls and ceiling. There was mildew and blood stains on the mattress, duvets/ pillows. The only good part about our trip was meeting all the wonderful volunteers there, and the nature was beautiful too. We didn't even last 3 days before getting terribly sick.We were mislead by all the positive reviews so we need to be honest.

The water is safe, it doesn't have more lead in it than the average city house. You also didn't voice any of your concerns to us so that we could help you fix them. You did zero work and then faked a migraine and snuck out of the house without telling anyone. Most people who come here are clearly hardier than you and love it, hence the positive reviews.

It was an amazing and immersive experience. I met a lot of people from all the world. The house was cold and little bit mess but I had been warned by Annie, so It's was ok for me. Annie and Pete are very nice and flexible. It was good for me to be in countryside, it's a beautiful, calm, nears to the forest and lake. I improved my English and I am more confidente to speak.
