The Abbey is currently closed to residential guests. We will reassess the situation in the light of public health and governmental guidelines.

The Community Shop is open Monday to Saturday 10.30am – 4.00pm. We are exploring the possibility of some online trading from the shop.

Historic Environment Scotland closed all their historic sites to public access in March. This includes Iona Abbey. The small resident group whose home the Abbey is continues to pray the Daily Office. They also have a weekly service of prayers for healing which are available via our Facebook page, Instagram feed and YouTube channel.  If you would like names to be included in this service, please contact [email protected] The Iona Prayer Circle continues to offer prayer through its dispersed online network of intercessors.  HES is re-opening some of its sites, but at the moment this does not include Iona Abbey.

Phone and internet outage on Iona.  We currently have limited telephone and internet access in our Welcome Centre offices.

Abbey Re-opening Event: this has also been postponed until 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you in the future.
