Based in the beautiful County Fermanagh, our charity provides family holidays for those who have suffered the loss of a child.

The charity was founded in 2016 after Ellie gained her angel wings following a long and heroic battle with H-ABC syndrome.

Ellie was 8 years old. Ellie’s Retreat has become a reality with help from families, friends, with the invaluable support from the local community and businesses.

We truly appreciate all the continued support in helping bereaved families and keeping Ellie’s memory alive.

About Us

Ellie’s Retreat offers FREE respite breaks exclusively for families who have suffered the loss of a child.

Ellie's Story

Ellie was born with the very debilitating H-ABC Syndrome.
However, despite all her efforts, on the 9th of March 2016 Ellie lost her long and heroic battle. Ellie was just 8 years old.


Ellie’s Retreat is very special and unique to Ireland. We sincerely hope it helps families like ourselves find some comfort.

Weekend away in this wonderful retreat was a really appreciated gift for my family. Welcomed with Toys for the kids, large hamper & groceries. With a sense of Grace and Peace Ellie’s retreat was just that. It gave us time to be together as a family and remember our little Lost Angel. ‘Nancy-Grace Shaw 26/09/12’. Beautiful, relaxing, friendly, spotless holiday park and accommodation. And sharing this experience with our sons was really special. Paula
