Assumptiontide Break – 2 to 4 nights

Starts: Friday 19 August 2022 @ 3pm
Ends: Tuesday 23 August 2022 @ 11am

A peaceful summer break at the shrine’s retreat house. Stay for just the weekend or extend your break for up to 4 nights.

You are welcome to join the sisters for prayers, attend services at the nearby churches and shrine or simply enjoy recharging your spiritual batteries as you soak up the peaceful atmosphere. We have very comfortable beds, a beautiful chapel, cosy sitting rooms and a peaceful cloister garden. Book as an individual or with friends and enjoy some quiet time to think, rest and pray.

Our weekend rate is always full board (main supper and dessert, breakfast and lunch) as well refreshments and use of the beautiful facilities at Dowry House. Lunch on Saturdays and weekdays is packed, giving you the freedom to explore the Shrine and other places of interest, such as the nearby beaches (5 miles). On Sundays there is always a lovely roast dinner to celebrate the day.

Weekend only rate:

Ensuite: £170

Standard: £150

If you would like to extend your stay, you are welcome to stay extra nights (Sun, Mon and Tues available) on a full board, half board or B&B basis as you prefer. Monday 222nd is the feast day of The Queenship of Mary, so you might like to stay on the extra day so as to attend midday Mass at the shrine. Please enquire by emailing
