A Community Resource

Oscailt, at No. 8 Pembroke Road, was founded in 2006 by Mary O’Callaghan as a community resource, primarily for the wide mix of people – home-dwellers, workers, shop keepers and business people – living or working in this region of Dublin city.

An Open Invitation

Oscailt, which is the Irish word for ‘open’, is an invitation to all of us to be open to the resources we all have within us. As an integrative health centre Oscailt sees health and well-being as more than the absence of illness. Oscailt is a place where we can learn to draw on our own inner resources to bring about well-being and nourishment for our body, mind, heart and spirit. To this end we offer a large range of disciplines, among which are mindfulness, self-compassion, psychotherapy, life coaching, energy Healing, Nutrition, Alexander Technique, Meditation, Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, Reiki, Baby Massage and much more.

As a community of health and well-being practitioners, part of our mission at Oscailt is to support each other in our various disciplines, thus being better able to provide a warm and welcoming service to the local and wider community who come through the door to us.

A Journey

We bring people who come through the front door on a deep journey of personal evolution. We offer an ever-deepening exploration through all of our courses, classes, retreats, one-to-one sessions and therapies.


We are all about personal empowerment. We support people to take responsibility for their own lives.

East Meets West

We bring East and West together. This is reflected not only in our teachings but also in the beautiful artwork and design found throughout the building.

A Home

Oscailt is all about home – coming home to oneself. We provide a professional, friendly, warm space for those who use our services. We provide a home for our community of practitioners.
