“Isolated, worth the side trip”
Review of Rosserk Friary

Reviewed September 11, 2013

All you hear are cattle and running water. It makes a visit her magical. The Friary has a lot of standing walls. It is on very small roads, but even the drive in is lovely,

The peacefulness! Don't be put off by the narrow road down to it. Information board near to main entrance

Rosserk Friary is well signposted on the Ballina-Killala road. it is a lovely peaceful spot to visit - as Yeats said "the peace comes dropping slow". The effects of the green pasture and the still waters will wash all your cares away. A lovely old stone ruin that is certainly worth a visit.

Easy to fine with GPS. Nice site it's was sunny day and got some good pictures. Right on the river. Some interesting stone carving in the church. This was the first time I had heard of marry couples running the friary.

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.)
