One Day Retreats continue on the following dates 5, 6, 8, 9, 12, 14, 15, 19 & 20th 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 open during September for One Day Retreats.

The 2015 Three Day Pilgrimage season ended on 15th August.
