Magnificently situated overlooking the Irish Sea, Ballyvaloo Centre is the ideal place to take time out from the stresses and pressures of modern living. The long beach frontage, rolling terrain, mature trees and farmland surroundings help to create a tranquil ambience for prayer, reflection and relaxation away from the incessant distractions of everyday life.

Above all, the Centre offers an oasis of peace from today’s all too busy world.
