Prior La Flynn’s message in relation to the May Retreat Season 2020


In the context of the COVID-19 crisis and the on-going government health measures, Lough Derg intends to open for the 2020 Pilgrimage Season as soon as the public health situation permits us to do so with confidence.

If you require further information contact the Lough Derg Team on or 00353 (71) 9861518.


The Sanctuary of St Patrick – Lough Derg – has been welcoming pilgrims for over a thousand years. In the past 150 alone over 2 million people have spent time in prayer and contemplation on this Holy Island.

One Day Retreats – now in their 29th year – continue to facilitate a wide range of people who would want to come on pilgrimage to Lough Derg. On a One Day retreat experience shoes remain on and a light lunch is served.

This island – so long associated with St Patrick and consecrated, we might say, by sustained pilgrim prayer and penance over countless generations – is happy to welcome you to be part of its living tradition.

A day for busy people who would really appreciate a break away from what may feel like relentless routine, and for those who really value the time they can find in life for the deeper things. The One Day Retreats offer encouragement and support for the journey. You will return home refreshed.

One Day Retreats typically run during the month of May, late August and early September – usually on Saturday’s & Sunday’s and on a number of weekdays.
