The Sanctuary...

Developed in 2010 to provide residential and conference facilities for retreatants, community groups and young people, the Sanctuary is the newest project of the Columba Community. It allows individuals and groups, particularly those affected by the Troubles in the North of Ireland, to come together in a private and confidential space to share their stories, dialogue and participate in programmes that will build capacity and empower them to move on with their lives.

We welcome all who seek peace and serenity, particularly ex-prisoners, addicts and young people and their families.

These facilities are now becoming increasingly more popular with visitors to the area.  Located on an elevated site on the Derry/Donegal border, The Sanctuary is the ideal base for your group or family holiday in the northwest. We offer 5 holiday homes and can accommodate up to 30 people (each home sleeps up to 6 people).

The many attractions of Inishowen including the Guns of Dunree, Doagh Island famine Village and Greencastle Maritime Museum are with in easy driving distance – as are the magnificent links courses at Lisfannon and Ballyliffin.

With car ferries at Greencastle and Buncrana and proximity to Derry City and airport, The Sanctuary makes the ideal location for your family holiday along the north coast of Ireland
