About Our Centre

Tara Kadampa Buddhist Centre is located in Rathgar, Dublin and provides a peaceful and relaxed environment in which people can discover the benefits of meditation and modern Buddhism for themselves.

We hold regular classes and courses, in addition to classes held at other venues around Dublin & Ireland. In-depth weekly study programs, chanted prayers and retreats are also provided for people who want to deepen their understanding of Buddha’s teachings.

The Centre is run by volunteers and dedicated students and there is usually someone at hand who can answer your questions and tell you more about the Centre. You can experience the tranquility of the meditation room, browse our book and gift shop and simply enjoy this peaceful oasis in the city.

Tara Centre is a member of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU), a non-profit organization with a global network of over 1,000 Centres and groups around the world.

Everyone is welcome!

Our Founder & Spiritual Guide: Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
