Iona Abbey and Centre

The abbey

The abbey

The Iona Abbey Centre comprises the buildings that were rebuilt by the founding members of the Iona Community and the buildings have retained a distinctly monastic feel. Built of stone and slate, the corridors and staircases link the shared bedrooms with the washrooms, the magnificent Refectory (dining hall), the Abbey Cloisters and the medieval Abbey Church itself.

Guests gather in the ancient Chapter House for formal sessions, relax in the cosy Common Room and have the opportunity to read or reflect in the impressive wood-paneled library overlooking the Sound of Iona. Bedroom accommodation is mostly bunk bedded rooms for 2-5 people.

If you are planning to visit Iona but are not staying at one of our centres take a look at the Historic Scotland website on Iona for some useful information.
