Celebrate Christmas together on Iona. Time for reflection on the meaning of Christmas without the distractions of shops and grottos. Experience starlight as you can never see it in the city, and candlelight in the ancient Abbey, as we welcome the light of the Christ child coming to live among us.

    I am interested in spending Christmas with the Community. I have spent Easter with you in the past. May I have further details including dates. Thank you.

      Hi there,

      I am afraid we won’t be running a residential week over the Christmas period this year. The weather is most temperamental and often the ferries are cancelled and can make it a difficult time for guests trying to get the island on time.

      Best wishes,

      Dear Mark and Evelyn,
      We are not having any programme on Iona this winter instead we will offer retreats at the Columba Hotel at Easter and in the autumn. Would you like to be added to this list?
      It was very problematic to run winter programme due to possible ferry disturbances for guests.

      Best wishes,

    This is sad. We did Christmas at Iona twice in the 90s and these belong to really happy memories.

    • Alex O'Neill says:

      I’m sorry you won’t be able to experience Iona at Christmas. We are undergoing a major renovation project at the Abbey and therefore we are not open to any guests at the moment. Hopefully we can welcome you back in the future and please keep an eye on the website for programme updates.
      Best wishes,
