“The Esker Experience”: Esker Monastery, Retreat House, and Youth Village, outside Athenry in County Galway, has been and is a place of great welcome, a place where people relax and experience life and togetherness at a different pace and in a different space. To young people we offer ‘The Esker Experience’ as a form of a youth retreat: (see sub-page). We also offer retreats occasionally to schools in their own area.
