Glendalough Trip

Glendalough is an amazing place. It is a monastic city since the 6th century. Many travel to Glendalough for the sheer beauty of the place. On this trip you will not only experience the beauty (weather permitting) but we will introduce you to the spirit of Glendalough through the lens of its monastic history and its deep roots in the Celtic world, and open your eyes and minds to the wonder of this very special place.

You can enjoy more of the breathtaking mountain scenery as we take the 'scenic route' back to Dublin through the Wicklow National Park (weather permitting)

Book here for the Glendalough Trip 




Weekly Email with information on things to do or places to go in Dublin

We will keep you updated on events happening around Dublin and around the country that you might enjoy taking part in if you sign up for them on our website



Delving Deeper‌

The Chaplaincy Service welcomes each and everyone of you to Dublin. We arrange these events because we believe in the Christian duty of hospitality which has proven to be a great joy for us. The aim of these events is to make you feel welcome during your time here while getting to know one another. While these events are helpful many of you may want extra support from the chaplaincy. If you are interested in finding out where your local place of worship is please feel free to contact me and I will advise. If any of you are specifically interested in exploring some aspects of our Christian heritage please email me and we will meet to look at issues likes Irish Monasticism, the role of Churches in the Peace Process in Northern Ireland, caring for the homeless as well as recommending you to places of worship that you can deepen your involvement with during your time here. My email is




The Chaplaincy team will be organising more events this semester so whether you are a new student to DIT or a returning student, we encourage you to keep an eye out for upcoming events here, and on Facebook and Twitter.
