  • Through deep woodlands on mysterious silent lanes, and into the open space with the full view of the ruins... They have made flower gardens on the approach; so lovely. As is the estuary and the swans....  more »
  • Like many ancient abbeys in Ireland, the place ready for meditation. The monks knew to choose the place where to... settle this estuary that gives on Clew Bay"is a magical place to visit late in the day!

  • A lovely and romantic ruined abbey in the most exquisite little estuary, with views over to the Nephin hills and Achill as a backdrop.  more »
  • Burrishoole Abbey is fascinating in history. The location is calm and peaceful and the abbey is in reasonable repair. Access is easy but watch for the tides if you park on the river side of the cemetery gate. The de Burgo chalice in the National Museum in Dublin is from this Abbey. There were friars here until the middle of the 19th century, the last was a Father O'Higgins
  • Very peaceful place, watch out for the tide
  • Nice ruin, not very well kept or presented
  • It is Hysterical
  • A beautiful ruin with an interesting cemetery trappings. Nothing particularly überwätigendes are very pleasant, because it was one of the places where we spared by busloads of other tourists.
