We arrived only with the help of the signs and did not know what to expect. It is very sweet and quiet and beautiful. Clearly it is a place of deep meaning for some who take excellent care of it.

It is a nice and cute place. The arrangement between the trees is fabulous. The place at all is enough to see if you are close to it.

Lovely peaceful place to visit. Very scenic and a short distance from the centre of Sligo town. Very spiritual place from a times past. Would recommend a visit for like minded people.

This is not for everyone, and not widely promoted by the locals. Its a bit difficult to find but that adds to the experience as well as keeping the site a bit special because not everyone will take the trouble. This is good because this...More

This was an interesting place to visit, given its history. No one else was here when we were, and it was a dull damp day. While I found it interesting, I think those of Faith would get more from a visit here.

A lovely place to just take a walk, some time to just be still and think, you dont have to be religious to appreciate the beauty of this area. A wonderful peaceful place to enjoy a few moments to yourself.

Many have claimed healing from the Mass Rock and from prayer while spending time at the grounds. More information is available on the web site.
