The House

Thank you for being such a welcoming “anamchara” and for creating this “nest in the rock” where the weary can find rest and renewal in hallowed Glendalough

“To be touched by a holy place is both a challenge and a blessing. My short stay here has opened my heart further to God”s blessing, and the gentle hospitality of this house has been part of that assurance”

“In my loneliness I met “Cairdeas”* [friendship], in my darkness “Cuinas”* [quietness] was revealed; in my fear “Dochas”* [hope] shone its flame, I left with “Sonas”* [contentment] in my heart, ready to face my storm clouds – I am stronger now! A wonderful experience in this quiet haven” * names of apartments

Such a beautiful, spiritual space which enriches you. Thank you, thank you”
