General Info

Camphill Communities of Ireland is part of an international charitable trust working with people with intellectual disabilities and other kinds of special needs.

In Camphill our residents share their home, spiritual and working lives with those who are motivated to meet others as individuals needing support and recognition for what they are, and not as carer and cared for in the conventional sense. Most of the people providing support to those with disabilities are volunteers, coming locally or from abroad.

Camphill is a way of life, where each person according to ability contributes what they can towards the well-being of the other.

Pioneered by war refugees in Scotland almost 70 years ago, Camphill today numbers over 100 communities in 20 countries. In the Republic of Ireland, 18 communities of varying sizes and settings are home to around 500 people, plus a number of day attendees.

Each person with a disability supported by Camphill has different needs. Camphill has responded by establishing centres that cater to those needs and by constantly adapting itself to meet changes in those needs.

At the core of the community is the recognition of the dignity of people with mental disabilities, giving less importance to the material equivalent of the work that is done by those who care for them as part of the giving and sharing in communal life.


Camphill Kyle is a small land based community near Callan.
Kyle itself occupies approximately 26 acres (10.5 hectares) of beautiful farmland, orchards and garden. We are 40 people of different ages and different abilities living and working together. Kyle provides a home for 15 people who have different special needs. Some have cerebral palsy and are in wheelchairs; some have Down’s Syndrome; some are autistic, emotionally disturbed and have behavioural difficulties. for more information


The Camphill philosophy is that no matter what an individual's disability may appear to be, the spirit - the essential core that makes us all human - always remains whole. So everyone deserves equal respect and opportunities in life so that all may be able to fulfil their potential.
