“Scenic Place to Reflect, Lots of History”
Review of Rosserk Friary

Reviewed May 10, 2013

We really enjoyed our visit to Rosserk, and we were the only people there. We explored for about 45 minutes before heading down the road to St. Mary's Well. The ruins are surrounded by pastures, and you can hear the sheep and horses. The view of the water is beautiful, and it is a nice place to walk and reflect.

Here are the GPS Coordinates that we used:
N 54 degrees 10' 16.8"
W 009 degrees 08' 37.0"

(You should see the sign for St. Mary's Well on the right as you head down the road that terminates at the friary.)

Great tourist attraction to visit in mayo, a piece of history, not far from ballina with spectacular views of sea, old franciscan friary that is well preserved.

We visited in October. Never say another living soul. Nicely preserved and touchingly somber. Worth a visit.

This place if beautiful. Great find while exploring County Mayo. Still in remarkable shape for it's age and the amount of weather it is subjected to. A must see if exploring sites around Ballina.

Great friary ruin to poke around in. Simple design on the banks of the Moy. Wear your wellies and explore. Some room for parking.
