Dzogchen Beara is a Tibetan Buddhist Retreat centre on the wild and beautiful Beara Peninsula in County Cork, Ireland. The center is part of Rigpa, an international network of Buddhist centres dedicated to making the Buddhist teachings of meditation, compassion and wisdom available to the modern world. Some of the offerings include: accommodation, retreats, and seminars.

In Ireland, Rigpa has four city centres and a number of study groups, as well as being home to Dzogchen Beara, located in West Cork.  They offer a place where everyone, regardless of age, background, of all faiths or none, is welcome to come and explore the methods and techniques that come from the Buddhist tradition. Many Tibetan masters, and almost everyone who visits, comment on the extraordinary qualities of Dzogchen Beara – its beautiful natural environment and an atmosphere of profound peace which comes from deep spiritual practice. There is also a Spiritual Care Centre which was created to help people who are living with illness or disability, have received a new diagnosis or are experiencing grief or burnout. You can also book a Supported Stay there. They offer listening and companionship, as well as guidance in meditations and contemplations. While these practices come from the Buddhist tradition, they are universally meaningful for those of all faiths and for those with a secular outlook on the world.
