About

Escape the day-to-day and discover a series of fascinating stories along the shores of the mystical Lough Neagh.

This experience is about connecting with nature, with history and with your own spirituality and uniqueness. You’ll be invited to ponder spiritual themes and reflect with the help and benefit of Celtic monk wisdom. Poetry and prayer bring a serenity to the journey as you pause in the ruins of an old church, an ancient monastic site and a famous stone cross, before reaching Benburb Priory, a working monastery. This is a historically significant building where you can take time to relax, reflect and enjoy the surroundings.

The Poetry and Prayers experience is very relaxing, peaceful and calm, and throughout it you'll be surrounded with song, rituals and nature, and encouraged to engage in prayer, actively reflect and to share your thoughts and hopes. It is an experience of discovery and connection; discovery of the beauty and history of the monastic trail around Lough Neagh and connection with ourselves and others.
