“Excellent and interesting workshops and very good value.”
Emmaus Centre’s location is ideal and accessible for participants travelling from different parts of Ireland but also close to the airport for overseas participants with good parking. All evaluation forms from my training events have all responded very positively to the Emmaus Centre in their feedback. I would strongly recommend the Emmaus Centre as a venue for training / room hire.
“It was a wonderful workshop. Fr Jim is an incredibly special man. The venue was perfect!”

“It was really fantastic and as it said “on the tin” life changing!”
“Every aspect of the experience felt very considered, the centre, the staff and the course itself. Maeve is exemplary in her delivery of a delicate course. An amazing experience. I feel very grateful that I got the opportunity to attend. I really appreciate that you have made these courses available price wise. I commend you. Thank you.”
“Br Denis was outstanding and the staff in the Emmaus centre were brilliant. Couldn’t be happier.”
“Maria Lynch is excellent. I’ve been to many of her courses in Emmaus and would go to more.”
Quiet location so near to airport. Nice walking trails on the property.
With the colorful balloons outside on the road, the welcome at the gate, the fantastic fun outdoor activities, the warm welcome inside, the many wonderful indoor activities, presentations and friendly staff serving lovely food, tea and coffee in the beautiful Emmaus Centre – all combining to produce great energy and excitement. The wonderful weather for the afternoon was a blessing and a bonus.
“I have been at Emmaus for two weeks of yoga and the grounds are simply breathtaking especially the Autumnal colours. The restaurant staff couldn’t be more helpful and every mealtime has been a feast. Thank you for your hospitality.
I’d just like to thank you for the wonderful job you did in organising the Family Day! Our little daughter and we had a terrific day exploring your beautiful grounds and we’d love to visit again soon.
