This chambered cave in the grounds of the Carmelite Monastery is said to have been the retreat of St Serf, or Servanus, as he removed himself from the busy religious world in the 6th century. Here “he was victorious in his battle with the De’il” - likened to Jesus’ 40-day sojourn in the desert, perhaps providing Dysart with its name. With seats carved in its “rooms” and romantic stone entrances added, the place exudes ancient peaceful calm.
