The friary and church are bright and spacious.  Visitors come from all over Ireland to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. Throughout the year a series of retreats caters for people from all walks of life.

Fresh, clean air, home-made jam, home-grown potatoes and freshly caught fish do for the body what the peaceful surroundings do for the spirit. The friars would like to express their heartfelt appreciation for the ongoing support and encouragement they enjoy from the local people and the diocesan clergy.
