About us

Kilbroney Weekend is an initiative of the Diocese of Down and Dromore as part of our objective to support the faith of young people and their families. Our aims for the weekend are to:

  • Grow young people in their faith through providing Bible study, devotions, worship & fellowship.
  • Teach and develop skills in leadership, teamwork and in new activities.
  • Build self–esteem, regard for others and friendships.

The Kilbroney Centre offers four–star accommodation for groups and is now one of the premier centres for youth groups in Northern Ireland. Accommodation includes meeting rooms, lounges, classrooms and a games room. It is surrounded by 11 acres of enclosed grounds at the foot of the Mourne Mountains. 

Our staff are highly experienced and include leaders who have both worked on youth camps and also directed outdoor residential centres. All leaders on the camp will also be vetted and trained for leadership.
