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.

Homeless Retreat at Tobar Mhuire
We were delighted to welcome a group of Homeless men on Retreat here in Tobar Mhuire. It is the begining of a series of these events we hope to help organise this coming year. It was a pleasure having the lads spend some time with us. as well as taking time to reflect they also got involved in some restoration work around the gardens. .We hope to see them again soon.
Summer Institute was inspiring
Thomas Groome, a world-renowned authority on religious education, led us in a wonderful journey of learning. He created a contemporary, holistic approach to teaching Christian beliefs and values that offered fresh, creative approaches for today s parents and teachers. His guide to religious education which aims to bring life to Faith and Faith to life is a hopeful road map for re-energizing the faith community and family from the bottom up. It was an inspiring Institute that left participants encouraged and challenged in regard to sharing Faith.
The institute this year was held in our new conference room thanks to the generious donation of Luisa a friend of Tobar Mhuire from Scotland. The work was expertly accomplished by Paul and Gary in time for the Summer Institute.
Recordings of the talks are available on MP3 from our Reception at Tobar Mhuire: 028 44830242 Donation £12
