Here’s what Sylvie and Clive have to say….

Located in the north-west of Ireland a warm welcome awaits all who find their way to Dove House Retreat, which offers a safe therapeutic haven from where change becomes possible.

Although not a typical retreat, Dove House offers many of the therapeutic aspects that are found in a retreat setting. Nestled in the beautiful and peaceful countryside of County Mayo, just one mile from the sea and close to the coastal village of Killala, Dove House Retreat offers a tranquil escape from the fast pace of modern living; a quiet oasis where you can recharge your batteries.

Whether you are looking for a relaxing break, a space to recuperate or opting to join one of our specialised programmes, we believe that you will find just what you need.

We offer a range of friendly workshops, recuperation weekends and short residential programmes designed to nurture the whole person. Dove House Retreat offers a special transitional space where healing can take place on many levels.




Sylvie has been a friend and associate of Reach over many years and that bond and connection is as strong as it ever was.  She decided that she wanted to take both her personal and professional experience and create a safe haven for others to delve more deeply into matters of the heart and the mind.  Along with her husband Clive, they’ve extended their home to create a wonderful environment in which others can learn, question, be still and explore.  Dove House is well worth a vist…..

Retreats mean different things to different people and so it’s always such a very personal experience. If what you’re looking for is warm, friendly conversation, a homely environment, good home-cooked food, walks amidst beautiful scenery, a place where you can either be stimulated by positive, uplifting material, or simply left to enjoy the many gifts of silence, then we believe Dove House will not disappoint….   To find out more about this Irish Jewel please click here.
