We offer a space of silence and solitude where the peace and beauty of Glendalough can nurture and heal the soul.
Following in the footsteps of monks and others who have lived and prayed here for centuries, we draw our energy from the inspirational and sacred landscape of mountains, valleys and lakes and open ourselves to its healing and restoring power. We are conscious that in this place we walk on holy ground.
Here at Glendalough Hermitage Centre pilgrims of all persuasions will find a welcome. In an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity, people from different walks of life come to be renewed in body, mind and spirit. We invite you to come and stay with us for a short while or for longer.
Here you will find space to reflect, to pray, to rest and be still and to journey inwards. You will also have freedom to follow your own path to wholeness and holiness. The journey into solitude takes place in the company of other pilgrims and, where needed, spiritual support is available.
We hope that all who come will find “the peace of God that surpasses all understanding” (Phil 4:7). May your visit to this sacred place be blessed.
No previous experience is necessary, you do not have to belong to any particular spiritual tradition – the only pre-condition is that you are on your own personal and spiritual journey.
If this is the case, you will be most welcome here and the hermitage experience has much to offer you.
