Out of the dust and dirt the new Tobar Mhuire has emerged. Still retaining it's legendary warm homely atmosphere but renewed and refreshed and ready to welcome old and new friends alike.
Building on the great legacy of former Passionists we have exciting plans for the future of Tobar Mhuire Retreat and Conference Centre.
We are now a well equipped modern Retreat and Conference Centre, set in sixty acres of woodland, in the heart of County Down. Visitors will enjoy our new facilities as well as the peace and quiet of the wonderful surroundings.
We welcome individuals and groups from Ireland and beyond who wish to take time out to reflect on their human and spiritual development. In Tobar Mhuire they will find a peaceful setting and encouragement from the Passionist Community who reside there.
We invite not only individuals and groups already committed to the Faith but also those who have yet to discover a sense of the Sacred in their lives. Those still searching and questioning will find a welcome in Tobar Mhuire.
The Passionist Community extend a welcome to their sisters and brothers of the Reformed Churches and hope that the resource that is Tobar Mhuire Retreat and Conference Centre will become a shared blessing for all.
