SCCUL Enterprises Ltd. was established to help prevent and alleviate poverty and distress in Galway city and county and to support the least privileged groups in our community. SCCUL Enterprises Ltd founded SCCUL Sanctuary to help them in this task.

At the SCCUL Sanctuary in Kilcuan we run tailored therapeutic retreat days for community groups and members of the public who are facing a crisis in their lives or in need of healing. So far SCCUL Sanctuary have developed these therapeutic days for the following groups;

  • Parkinson’s support group
  • MS support group
  • Cancer support groups
  • Console – Supporting those bereaved by suicide
  • Mental health support groups
  • Carers support groups – For full time family carers
  • Galway Head Injury Support group
  • Elderly groups – Croi Na Gaillimhe and Clann

Kilcuan Retreat Centre is owned by The Irish Pilgrimage Trust and SCCUL Sanctuary is delighted to be able to make use of the centre when it is not in use by the IPT themselves.

Situated in a tranquil woodland setting, the building has a beautifully designed oratory, which provides a peaceful sacred space. Our purpose in the SCCUL Sanctuary is to provide a safe space where those who are facing very difficult life challenges can enjoy a therapeutic retreat day in an idyllic setting where they can improve their well-being, gain new perspectives and connect with others facing similar challenges.

We have developed our workshops to reach those in dire need of help and emotional support. For each workshop we have worked closely with the relevant established charity to establish the therapies and healing treatments that would best benefit the service users in their groups.

Our goal is for our retreat centre to be a healing, welcoming place where visitors will feel nurtured and self-sustained after their time in these natural surroundings. Our aim is that this will create sustained impact and change for the better and hope in the future.
