Ards offers a full range of Retreats throughout the year both private and directed. We also facilitate many day retreats for individuals or groups who simply want to refocus their lives. A special welcome is extended to parishes and schools as well as individuals who wish to spend a few days in quiet reflection or just connecting with the beauty of nature. All are most welcome.

The Retreat Centre lies on the Wild Atlantic Way and is nestled in 200km of woodland on the shores of Sheephaven Bay. The extensive grounds offer a range of woodland walks and scenic views of the shore with the hills of Donegal as a backdrop.

Accommodation is available for those who wish to prolong their retreat or for anyone who simply wants a few days rest and relaxation in peace and quiet where they can unwind amidst the natural beauty of the Donegal countryside.
