Avenue at Galilee


Galilee Community Welcomes You

Galilee Community is a sacred space, a place of prayer, reflection and sacred landscapes that draw the human spirit to find God present in all life experiences.

… and I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow… W B Yeats.

Where we are

‘Galilee’ situated in the midst of lakes, woodlands and mountains commands a spectacular view of the picturesque countryside bordering Leitrim, Sligo and Roscomon. It provides an ideal setting for a short break or a more extended stay.

The Galilee community are happy to provide an opportunity for you to ‘chill out’ with a difference. – an hour, a half day, a few days – you decide.

The surrounding area provide ample opportunity for walking, hill walking, cycling, boating, fishing and sightseeing.

Sacred Garden

This garden is presently unfolding and we aim that it too will be a place of peace and tranquility which will draw the human spirit to find God present in all of creation.

The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.
Dorothy Frances Gurney
