About The Margaret Aylward Centre

The Margaret Aylward Centre is located on the lawn at the front of the convent in Glasnevin, a beautiful setting surrounded by well-cared for gardens and mature trees.

Sharing this beauty, providing a space for stillness, prayer and a focus on faith development enables us to continue our mission in the service of faith.

The focus on dialogue is of particular significance to the work of the centre. The cedar of Lebanon which stands in the space between the convent grounds and the Botanic Gardens is a symbol that resonates with Judaism, Christianity and Islam and reminds us of the need for dialogue between faiths. The centre serves as a place for purposeful ecumenical and inter-religious dialogue and activity.

We offer space for those seeking periods of tranquillity. Spiritual accompaniment is available on request. Individuals and groups are welcome to hold events such as meetings, retreats, exhibitions, guest lectures, book launches and conferences.
