Lá Fhéile Bride

Light grows and the wind blows just a little warmer at the old Celtic festival of Imbolc, which marks the seasonal shift from winter to spring. Imbolc is celebrated on 1st February and is also Brigid’s Day, the feast day of St. Brigid.
We can make our own cross to honour Brigid – a woman of many talents – a brave, compassionate, and generous woman – most worthy of our praise and respect.

As we come closer to the season of Spring

As we care for Earth

Let us make her virtues our own!

St Brigid's Day

We are a living heritage centre located amongst the breath taking scenery of the Blackwater Valley. The centre marks the birth place of the foundress of the Presentation Congregation, Nano Nagle.

Nano Nagle Birthplace provides tranquillity and spirituality and is the perfect location for those looking for some time out in a natural peaceful setting.

Our mission is to promote a vision of eco spirituality - the natural interconnectedness of everything, which leads to personal transformation and a sense of responsibility to our earth and to all living beings.

We run retreats, courses, school programmes, day away programmes and host conferences & events. Visitors can come and do a heritage & organic farm tour, cosmic walk, work on an allotment and simply enjoy the natural beauty of the place.

Our base is a 32-acre certified organic farm with dining facilities and self-catering accommodation that operates to the highest environmental standards.
