St Anthony’s Retreat Centre | Catholic Retreats in Ireland
St Anthony’s Retreat Centre offers Catholic retreats in an atmosphere of peace and solitude in the townland of Dundrean near Burnfoot in County Donegal, Ireland.
We welcome visitors regardless of faith. Retreatants can simply spend time reflecting surrounded by beautiful countryside.
St Anthony’s offers private or direct retreats for individuals and days of renewal for groups with hermitage accommodation on-site.
St Anthony’s is home to Fr Neal Carlin, spiritual director and founder of the Columba Community in nearby Derry City.
The Retreat Centre is in the Roman Catholic tradition and specializes in retreats taken from Ignatian spirituality. If required, Fr Carlin is on hand to offer spiritual guidance and directed retreats.
According to Fr Carlin: “The primary reason for St Anthony’s is to give people an experience of a retreat, where they can get in touch with themselves and experience the Spirit of God within and the Spirit of God in nature. It’s an opportunity to get guidance for a more fulfilled and generous life.”
