An Sanctóir Holistic Community Centre offers a beautiful, eco-friendly venue in a secluded setting on a 25 acre nature reserve in the heart of West Cork near the coastal village of Ballydehob. It is home to a variety of weekly classes, weekend workshops, festivals and celebrations and its fabulous octagonal hall is available for hire throughout the year. Visitors are welcome on the land and can enjoy an extensive network of nature trails. An Sanctóir is a registered charity run by a group of voluntary trustees on a not for profit basis.

We will be re-opening to the public on Monday 29th June. We are so happy that people can begin to gather together again.

In line with government recommendations, An Sanctóir is welcoming groups of up to 12 people to use the hall for yoga classes, and groups of up to 24 people to use the hall for seated events (eg concert, workshop).

These limits will hopefully increase on 20th July.

The hall is very spacious and so is very amenable to 'social distancing'.

If you'd like to book in a class/ workshop/ event please email

We look forward to welcoming the community back onto the land.
