Description
Built in 1894, Bishop's House on Iona is a retreat house taking groups and individuals daily and weekly. It is situated close to Iona Abbey and looks out to the tranquil setting of the Sound of Iona. The beautiful Columba's Chapel is situated right in the heart of the house. Bishop's House has a fine tradition of good wholesome home cooking.

Bishop's House has space for up to 23 people accommodated in 8 twin and 7 single rooms. Since this is primarily a retreat house guests are asked to help with keeping their own rooms during their stay and helping to lay and clear away before and after meals. We find that this time helping each other gives more of a sense of community within the house. St Columba's chapel is open all day. In summer the Eucharist is celebrated daily, and all are welcome to attend this service.

Bishop's House is now offering the opportunity of self-catering over the winter months. A new way to enjoy being on Iona in a different session. Our most affordable way to be on Iona.
