2014 Season on Lough Derg

Lough Derg invites you to take time out for yourself.

 The Island, which has been a place of prayer for over 1,000 years, probably even more, offers something very special. The prayers of millions of pilgrims have made their mark. As a pilgrim once put it; “the very rocks ooze prayers to heaven all through the winter, prayers that have been tramped into the stones during the summer pilgrimage season.”

Come walk in the footsteps of your ancestors, savour the atmosphere, feel the divine energy of this unique Island made sacred from centuries of prayer.
