The Avila CentreThe Avila Carmelite Centre is an oasis of peace and tranquillity just 2 km from the centre of Dublin. While close to main roads it is nestled away in an area that offers quiet and green spaces. The modern building, filled with light and surrounded by an extensive garden, offers an ideal space for quiet and reflection. The beautiful chapel is a place of welcome and prayer.

Avila welcomes guests of all faiths and none. It offers a variety of retreats and courses on aspects of spirituality. For those who wish to “get away from it all” and have quiet time we have eight en-suite guest rooms and two hermitages.

The conference facilities and large car park make Avila an ideal location for small conferences, in particular those of charity groups.

Avila is located on Bloomfield Avenue, just off Morehampton Rd (N11) in Donnybrook. It is well served by public transport with bus routes 39A (Blanchardstown to UCD), 46A (Phoenix Park to Dun Laoghaire) and 145 (Heuston Station to Kilmacanogue) and the Aircoach Service (Dublin Airport to Sandyford) within a five-minute walk.
