About Us


Muintir Mhuire  meaning Mary’s Extended Family is a Christian Community formed for the  benefit of young people. It offers a place for time out, retreat, an  opportunity for them to develop their spiritual life, through prayer,  practical work and study. It is a place where the true celebration of  life's values, are explored. Members can enrich and develop their God  given talents through craft, meditation, organic gardening,  contemplation and nature, living in a community where everything is  directed toward the spiritual growth of its members.

Today’s Reality  

In today’s world many of our  youth those like Kevin, Alison, Bill and Jason are faced with difficult  decisions, be it their role in life, to be married or single, choice of vocation or religious life or in their choice of study or work.  Sometimes young people can lack confidence in themselves. Pressure to be  successful, to be as good as their peers, to live up to their parents  expectations, can result in nervousness, stress, anxiety or depression.  In the search to find acceptance, friendship, encouragement and love in  their lives some make immoral choices. Some of these being promiscuity,  alcohol, drugs, new age Religions, the occult and many more that lead to  severe disappointment. Sadly as a result of these there are too many  unforeseen incidents arising, resulting in unhappiness, loneliness,  despair, and sometimes even suicide.

If you are in the 18 to 30+ age group and thinking about taking time out you could phone us now at 00353 86 2571445.

Our Aims

It is our aim to provide accommodation, a family  atmosphere, love and support to those who want to be part of our  community, to enrich and improve their quality of life, to avoid  isolation and to provide assistance, support and guidance to all who are  involved with us. We do this by providing an experience of Christian  Community, living within the community for a period of at least six  months. Offering those who participate a solid foundation and a new  basis for life thus reducing many of the stresses that may have  previously occurred. There is an opportunity for discussion with others  who have similar interests or the opportunity to speak in confidence to  someone on any issue of concern. The community is open to English  speaking people, both male and female from the age of 18 to mid 30s.

Divine Providence

Muintir Mhuire  began with little or no assets, no funds or source of income, only with  divine inspiration and a strong faith in God our Father. It is our  belief that God continues on a daily basis to show His unlimited love  for us and cares abundantly for all our needs. To date He has done that  in extraordinary ways through those He has put us in contact with and  who have come to share our vision. Also His love is shown to us by the  generosity of our supporters, benefactors and friends. All contributions  donated are used directly for the development of the community. The  administration and management is carried out by the members of the community and our friends on a voluntary basis thus having little  administration costs.
