Please write to fatherseraphim@mullmonastery.com before paying for your deposit, to check availability and to make sure we avoid double booking.

If you prefer, the Deposit can also be paid by cheque. The cheque should be written to American Friends of the Celtic Saints and sent to American Friends of the Celtic Saints, 3736 W County Rd 4, Berthoud, CO 80513. Please include a note with the names of the pilgrims and the week of pilgrimage for which you are making the payment.

The price of a week of Pilgrimage is 1500 GBP (or 1900 USD) per person. The cost in British pounds will be updated regularly, due to the exchange rate variations brought about by Brexit.

The Deposit costs 500 GBP (or 600 USD) – your place is booked only upon receipt of the non-refundable deposit.

Final Balance Payment is 1000 GBP (or 1300 USD) – this is due by December 1st 2019, and becomes non-refundable after that date. Balances paid in advance (before December 1st) are fully refundable until December 1st.

The price of a Pilgrimage includes:

Accommodation for seven nights in a beautiful house on the Atlantic coast of the Isle of Mull;

All breakfasts, dinners and packed lunches (as we shall be travelling to a holy place every day);

Transport by car everywhere on the Isle of Mull (we shall have three cars available all week-long);

One motor boat to take us to St Brendan’s Isle;

One sailing boat to take us to St Kenneth’s Isle;

Ferry trips to the Isle of Mull and Isle of Iona;

Entry tickets to all places we visit.

We aim to make sure that, once you arrive to Mull, there is nothing else for you to worry about for the entire week. This way, we may focus on the pilgrimage itself, on personal prayer and communion with one another. If you need help with any aspect of the trip to Mull, we are here to advise and help you.

We visit some of the most remote and authentic places connected with early Celtic Christianity. Some of these places have been uninhabited for centuries, with no touristic or religious routes linking them to other destinations. The pilgrimages organised by the Monastery are the only way one can visit some of these isles.

Among many other places, we shall get to the Isle of Iona (Iona Abbey, Martyrs’ Bay, the Nunnery, St Oran’s Chapel, the famous Celtic High Crosses, St Columba’s Bay, the Hill of the Turning Back to Ireland, the Marble Quarry and the Machair); the ruins of St Kenneth’s monastery and the ancient hermit cells; St Brendan’s monastery on his uninhabited Isle; and some of the great Celtic Christian places on the Isle of Mull (The Nuns’ Cave, the Carsaig Arches, Kilninian etc). The schedule depends on the weather and the state of the ocean.
