Our site tells you about the Malahide Carmelites and also tells you about the option for God that is the vocation of a Carmelite and keeps you up to date on times of masses, prayer services, etc. and of any special occasions, such as talks, retreats, etc.
We are a women’s contemplative community, part of the worldwide Carmelite family in the tradition of St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross. We trace our origin to a small group of Irish Women who came together in Dublin c. 1640 to begin living Carmel. Eventually they settled in Ranelagh and were there for almost 200 years until moving to Seapark, Malahide in 1975.
