“Sanctuary of St Patrick - Lough Derg”

Station Island, Lough Derg, County Donegal, Ireland

This enormous religious complex of dorms & churches etc is named ‘St Patrick's Purgatory’. Built on an ancient pilgrimage site isolated on this small island on 'Lough Derg’ meaning (Lake of the Cave). For over 1500 years pilgrims have been visiting the Lough Derg shores to find peace & pray for loved ones. Visitors to this monastery starve themselves for 3 days & nights, pray continuously & walk barefoot on sharp rocks amongst the cold & biting midges. This is all part of the pilgrimage here that is said to be one of the toughest to complete in the world!

According to legend this Island site dates from the fifth century, when ‘Jesus Christ’ showed ‘St Patrick’ a cave on Station Island. This cave was supposedly an entrance to ‘Purgatory’ that ‘St Patrick’ had visions in from the otherworld, hence the name “St Patrick's Purgatory”. The cave that started it all has been closed since 1632 and covered over by the Basilica to protect others & welcomes people from all over the world to visit & pray over the gateway for all time.
