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, pilgrims from Ireland came to pray at the tombs of the apostles Peter and Paul and admire the glories of the Eternal City. Villa Irlanda Roma has been established to provide pilgrim accommodation. It is a Casa per Ferie, bed and breakfast, which is open all year-round and welcomes individual pilgrims as well as pilgrimage groups  seeking to explore the religious heritage and culture of the Eternal City.

Situated 5 minutes’ walk from Rome’s Cathedral, the Basilica of St. John in Lateran and the Holy Stairs, Villa Irlanda is situated close to the Basilica of St. Clement, home to the Irish Dominicans in Rome.  Located on the grounds of the Irish College, Villa Irlanda is ideally situated for those who wish to connect with the Catholic faith.
