More About Pook


The 13acres in the townland of Castle Pook have, for the last 16 years, been in the care of Del and Bev Richardson, who both follow earth based spiritual paths.

This is an active place of spiritual awakening for all who approach it with honest and loving intent.  The lands are awake and open to touch as safe ritual and meditational space. Gardens, meadows, hedges and the river glade are all fully alive and communicative.   

Since 1995 gatherings, circles, workshops and hearth nights have been hosted here, along with handfastings, namings and all rites of passage for our larger spiritual community. 

For the past two years we have worked to enhance the facilities here,

making what we have to offer grow with our imaginings.

We now offer a wood-fired hot-tub with three-tier lounging deck.

A 16-foot round splash pool filled with our river water.    

Four acres of flat field camping plus small riverside camp places all with campfire options.  

Boutique camping with tents, bedding and all your needs catered for also available.

 The hostel has a small dorm (two double bunk futons) and a double room. There are hot showers and flush toilets inside and outside.  Also a 15’ sq. common room for meetings and sessions, all heated by woodstoves using timber from our own plantations.

The catering here is world-class: ask anyone who has experienced it!

Being secluded, and not overlooked, Pook is also naturist-friendly.

If you prefer to perform your rituals ‘sky-clad’, or just like to feel the wind and sun on your skin, we can offer privacy and discretion.
