Burrishoole Abbey

We went to visit the Burrishoole Abbey (actually it is a Friary since it was part of the Dominican order which didn't have abbots). It was built circa 1470. Only part of the structure still remains but it is used as an active cemetery. It is now a National Monument. It overlooks an inlet off the Irish Sea/Atlantic Ocean and can be found near the town of Newport in County Mayo.
