  • Beautiful and interesting spot for a wander around.
  • 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
