We depart from our designated location, accompanied by an experienced
tour guide. We stop en route at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel, Athlone to
enjoy tea / coffee and scones, before continuing to Knock.
Knock Shrine has attracted millions visitors over the last one hundred
years, including Pope John Paul ll and Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Since
the apparition of Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint Joseph, John the Evangelist,
angels and Jesus Christ in 1879 Knock Shrine has become a place of
pilgrimage. While the original church still stands, the complex now
incorporates five churches including the Basilica. Services at the Shrine
include daily Masses and Confessions and Anointing of the Sick. A large
range of religious goods are on sale in several shops. There are numerous
cafés and restaurants.
Most pilgrims find themselves refreshed after their visit, both physically
and spiritually , and we trust that this will be your experience on your day
at the Shrine.
We leave Knock for our evening meal in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel in
Athlone. The hotel enjoys a well deserved reputation for both food and
service. After the meal we travel back to our drop off point.
