A Must Visit Village : The cottage in Dooagh, Achill Island is in a fantastic location and was ideal for our visit.

A walk through the ages: The history is manifest, St Patrick baptizing converts here as back as in 441 AD. The old photos hung inside the church depict the ruins before restoration.

Moyne Abbey Full review

An off-beaten track amongst the green pastures to view the historical ruins: A picturesque walkway amongst the cow pastures featuring Gothic architecture from the Christian era. This well-preserved abbey wasn't an easy find and was difficult to access through the farm and pastures too.

Nice Relaxing Visit: Georgian house of the medium size set against the spectacular backdrop of Nephin Mountain. The gardens are pleasant but not outstanding. The walk to the lake's edge is worth the effort for the view of the mountain. Feels a little bit like going back in time. Dogs allowed which was great.
