One Day Retreats recommence on 17th August 2015
and continue on certain days in late August and September.

A Place of Pilgrimage

Lough Derg, the sacred Sanctuary of St Patrick, is very much a living part of Irish Christian Heritage.

A unique island, rich in prayer and faith, an island which has been calling pilgrims for over a thousand years, an island which St Patrick himself was called to.

For many people Lough Derg provides an opportunity to step back from their lives, to take stock and examine the direction which their lives are taking. For many others it is a time to come closer to God through prayer and reflection.

Lough Derg is an island of pilgrimage set in calm lake waters, offers no distraction, no artificialities or interruptions. Instead you are warmly welcomed and cared for: there are no strangers here. The island, made holy by the prayers of millions of pilgrims over the centuries, continues to provide a safe haven for rest, reflection and renewal to all who wish to ‘Come away to a quiet place and rest a while’, Mark 6:31

The Island is now open for the 2015 Summer Pilgrimage Season.

The Three Day Pilgrimage season continues and the last day to begin the pilgrimage for this year is on Thursday 13th August. 

One Day Retreats will recommence on Monday 17th August and are offered on specific dates in late August; 18, 19, 23, 24, 25, 30, 31 and on certain days in September; 5, 6, 8, 9, 12, 14, 15, 19, 20.
