The New Franciscan Prayer Centre

Our Franciscan Community invite you to explore your spirituality through reflection, rest and prayer

The Centre is newly built, sited alongside the Friary Church and adjacent to a secluded and extensive garden. The Centre is small and personal, an oasis of peace and tranquility in the heart of Killarney and just a three-minute walk from public transportation

Killarney is regarded as one of the most beautiful places in the world. No one who visits the National Park can fail to encounter the God who created its lakes, forests and mountain ranges. It is an ideal environment to get away from the stress of everyday life and a unique opportunity for reflection.

During your stay at the Centre you are invited to share in the prayer and liturgical life of the Franciscan community. Those who are seeking the opportunity for a few days private retreat are very welcome. Spiritual direction is offered upon request. En-suite bedrooms are available for guests together with the use of the oratory, a private lounge/library and dining room.
