Transforming political & inter-communal conflict since 1974

The Glencree Centre for Peace & Reconciliation works to prevent and transform political and inter-communal conflict and build peaceful, inclusive societies. We bring individuals and groups impacted by conflict together and help them find pathways to reconciliation and sustained peace through facilitated dialogue, relationship-building, public discourse and shared learning.

Everyone has the right to live in peace

As the Republic of Ireland's only peace centre, and through our role in the peace process, Glencree is uniquely qualified within the international peacebuilding community to transform conflict. As well as our continued work on the island of Ireland, our perspective and expertise has been shared with over ten conflict and post-conflict countries around the globe.
