Gort Muire

Welcome to the website of Gort Muire, a centre of administration, hospitality, and care for the elderly, as well as being the centre of formation and study for Carmelites in Ireland.

Gort Muire is the residence of the Prior Provincial of the Irish Province of Carmelites and houses the Provincial offices including the Province Archives and Library. It is the Irish Province’s study centre as well as a house of hospitality and retirement, and for the care of sick and elderly friars.

The Carmelites purchased the original Gortmore House in 1944. A chapel and two blocks for accommodation, lecture rooms and library would be added over the next twenty years.  The Chapel houses the specially commissioned ‘The Scapular Vision’ by the renowned Irish artist Sean Keating, while the two beautiful stained-glass windows of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and of St Joseph are from the Harry Clarke School.
