Stay In Donegal At The Song House

The Song House Ireland is a creative retreat centre, situated in the heart of the stunning north west Donegal landscape and Gaeltacht region. The Song House (or Teach na nAmhrán in Irish) is a place driven by the values that foster reconnection to ourselves, rekindling a sense of belonging to our true inner & outer home and our place on Mother Earth.

Our mission is to create a space where individuals and groups can renew, transform and reconnect with Nature and Spirit, through song, culture and stillness.


The dwelling sits at the foot of the majestic Muckish Mountain, with it’s organic garden blending beautifully into the views.  Surrounded by rugged elemental nature – the wild Atlantic Ocean, expansive sandy beaches, hidden caves and wells, mountains and bogland, this area of Donegal represents the best of a county in recent years voted as The Coolest place on the planet.

The Song House is available to hire for residential retreats, workshops, as a base for family holidays to explore Co. Donegal and for whatever your wild imagination will allow. We are happy to work with you in making your stay as special as it can be – get in touch!

Online Courses at the Song House 2021

Online Courses in Poetry, Sean-Nós, Irish Language and Culture & More

The Song House continues to adapt to these foggy uncertain times. We’ve had much success with our online events since lockdown, gathering folks from all over the world to share in the richness of song, story, culture, poetry, ceremonial celebrations of the seasons and so much more.

In welcoming 2021 we’ve decided to continue to offer online events as a Song House staple. We also continue to plan our usual dynamic selection of in–person events. Both our online and in person events are designed & delivered by many artists, academics, tradition bearers and cultural enthusiasts we feel inspired by and called to collaborate with. Many are based in the locality as well as internationally. Each present a wonderful & unique opportunity to harness the best of being together, whether in digital or in in-person space – where we gather and create experiences that help nourish, carry us through, inspire and enrich our lives.
