Escape the day-to-day and discover a series of fascinating stories along the shores of Ireland’s 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 to reflect with the help and benefit of Celtic monastic 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 relaxing, peaceful and calm. Throughout it you’ll be surrounded with nature and song, poetry and prayer, ritual and reflection. You’ll be invited and encouraged to participate by actively reflecting and sharing 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.
