Lough Derg is an island which has been calling pilgrims for over a thousand years, including St Patrick himself. For many it provides an opportunity to step back from their lives, to take stock and examine the direction which their lives are taking. For many others it is a time to come closer to God through prayer and reflection.

Lough Derg is an island of pilgrimage set in calm lake waters, offers no distraction, no artificialities or interruptions.
