Welcome to Manresa

A place apart - close to the heart of Dublin

Manresa is close to the heart of Dublin yet is a place apart - an ideal place in which to nourish the spirit and find peace in God. And that's our mission: to help people of all denominations, traditions and beliefs to discover the living God present and active in their daily lives. We rely on the wisdom of Saint Ignatius Loyola, especially as found in his Spiritual Exercises.

We offer one-to-one accompaniment, training in spiritual direction, programmes for the deepening of faith and prayer, programmes on spirituality in the workplace, and seminars on a wide range of topics. We also offer retreats for professional and parish-based groups, and in-service training for those working in the Ignatian tradition. Welcome to Manresa Jesuit Centre of Spirituality.
