Avila also offers two hermitages for hire. These are self-contained, self-catering cottages on the grounds of Avila and allow complete solitude. The hermitages are furnished simply yet comfortably. Each hermitage can accommodate one or two people, with an en-suite bathroom and cooking facilities. Towels and bed-linen are provided. There is a choice of grocery stores and restaurants a few minutes’ walk away in Donnybrook village and Ballsbridge is accessible via a pleasant walk through Herbert Park.
As with private retreats guests are welcome to use the chapel and attend Mass and Divine Office with the community if they wish. Spiritual guidance can be provided by a member of the resident community if requested in advance.
The maximum length of stay is normally six days but longer retreats can be accommodated.
Suggested offering: Single residency – €80.00 per overnight stay, or €140 for double residency overnight stay.
