The venue

An Sanctóir is West Cork’s very own Holistic Community Centre and is home to a variety of weekly classes, weekend workshops, performances, rituals and celebrations. There is a beautiful light filled octagonal practice space with wooden floors and underfloor heating, set within a 23 acre nature reserve, just outside the coastal village of Ballydehob. There are several nature trails around the site that have been cleared for use. We encourage you to let yourself wander and appreciate the natural environment around you!
