Glenstal Abbey is a Benedictine monastery in County Limerick on the south-west coast of Ireland. A 500 acre estate with streams, lakes and woodland paths, surrounds a castle built in the romantic Norman style.The Abbey, which is dedicated to Saints Joseph and Columba, is home to a community of monks. Our prayer and liturgical celebration combine with managing a boarding school for boys, a farm, and a guest house.The monks assemble in Church four times a day for the Divine Office and the Mass. Benedictine worship emphasises beauty and harmony, celebrating God’s presence, while it evokes a response of loving reverence in the monk.
