The Irish have felt drawn to Rome since the dawn of Christianity.
Taking diverse routes, travelling by land and sea, across the Alps or along the coast, visitors from Ireland came to pray at the tombs of the apostles Peter and Paul and admire the glories of the Eternal City. The Pontifical Irish College has hosted visitors from Ireland and beyond since its foundation in 1628.
Continuing this tradition the College has established Villa Irlanda Roma to provide guest accommodation. This separate institution, located on the grounds of the Irish College, will provide bed and breakfast accommodation for individuals, families and groups a like.
