“Spiritual, peaceful oasis of calm”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

I visited here on a beautiful sunny day.
It is not difficult to find with a sat nav and it quite well sign posted.
It is located in beautiful Mayo countryside and commemorates the life of Fr. Patrick Peyton, CSC the 'Rosary Priest'.
There is a beautiful and simple Rosary Garden out the back where we spent some quiet time and a wonderfully calm, peaceful and holy chapel where a CD of Fr. Peyton praying the Rosary is on loop. It was a joy to be present in this space.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.
We could not experience the dining room as there were large groups of seniors there.
If you are around the area seek out this centre and enjoy the calm it will bring to your soul.

“Nice centre in Mayo well worth a visit”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

If you are coming to Mayo to visit knock then its well worth visiting this centre. At the foot hills of OX mountains, spectacular views. Nice to see something off the beaten track as they say.

“coach party visit”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The Memorial Centre is a bit of a rocky drive from entering town of Ballina. Audio Visual unit is very good. Peaceful garden setting

“Surrounded by Rugged Beauty”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Worth a visit if in the area. Interesting stop in a rural area of rugged beauty. A memorial center dedicated to the 'Rosary Priest', but could be interesting, even for the non-religious, due to the historic background and the scenic qualities of the country surrounding the Center.

“Good Luck finding it!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

I enjoyed my visit and reading about the inspirational Father Peyton. I was surprised to find the resident priest was from Notre Dame.
