State of the art conferencing facilities located in the most beautiful, relaxing environment conducive for effective workshop sessions.

We’ve all been there… those compulsory company workshops and strat sessions that should be motivating and exciting, but quickly became laborious, long winded and a daily grind of “Death by PowerPoint”.

If you are seeking increased overall productivity, creativity, and engagement, what you need is a venue that offers tranquility, natural lighting, and fresh air.

At Crawford’s Beach Lodge, not only will you find that conducive space, but you and your delegates will also be located at one of the few venues in the country that is so close to the sea, that the drone of the city will soon be cleansed from your minds by natures ultimate white noise, the whispering waves.

A Conference Coordinator is on hand to accommodate the style of conference and seating arrangement you need, or any other special arrangements you may require.

Breakfasts & Dinners are included in the Accommodation Package, so you can be sure of fresh and healthy meals to keep your delegates motivated.

The all-important relaxation time with colleagues can take place around the pool, or on the beach with your feet in the sand.
