The Diseart acts as the centre for a lively community giving expression to and promoting Celtic Culture and Spirituality as an integral part of our local heritage.
Housed in the former Presentation Convent premises in Dingle. Founded in 1966, An Diseart developed as a centre for research into all areas of Irish spirituality and Celtic Culture including theology, language, literature, art, laws, folklore, values, spirituality, history, music, archaeology and customs led by the late Msgr Padraig Ó Fiannachta and associated with his valuable collection of manuscripts and books now housed in the Dingle Library.
With the support of the Presentation Sisters, An Diseart is managed by a voluntary board who make provision for the care and maintenance of the building and grounds.
The centre is available to the community for the development of spiritual, artistic, cultural and Irish language activities and is a place for everyone to bring and share their gifts.
An Diseart organises cultural, spiritual and heritage events throughout the year and the gardens are a location for family picnics, cultural gatherings and private prayer and meditation.
