This was possibly the eight or ninth time I've taken a group to Benwiskin. Once again it was one of our highlights.during our time in Ireland. After the long, long journey this is always an oasis of peace. We love being able to prepare our own meals, a great way to develop the "comunitas" of our pilgrim journey. The rooms and bathrooms, kitchen and lounge are spotless and the welcome is always friendly. Great spot to explore our heritage. Everything from stone-age Creevykeel to early Christian Drumcliff with its famous Yeates epitaph, to the mass rock and nearby city of Sligo.
