Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Abandoned Church just off the N56 near the towns Falcarragh and Dunfanaghy, the Ray Grotto is not far away across the road, near the Ray river.

Had no trouble finding this with our Garmin and it’s a short jaunt down a tiny road to get there. This 6th century church with the largest medieval stone cross (8th century) is a really special place to visit. Highly recommend for some unique photos.

loads of history on this hidden gem on the Wild Atlantic Way, check out its standing stone, Bulaun Stone, High cross and not forgetting the 7mtr tall cross carved from one stone .... it was said that 200 people attending a confirmation were killed here and buried about 200mts from the Church in a place called the "resting place of the bones"

Off the beaten track but easy to locate (follow the brown signs) and well worth a quick visit. It houses possibly the largest high Cross in Ireland.

Went here on a gloriously sunny Saturday and spent a few hours here without seeing another person.

As you head out the N56 from Falcarragh to Dunfanaghy, after roughly a mile you will cross the Ray River. The next left turn takes you to the church. (small brown sign)

It is a pretty narrow, rough road and there is no real turning spot at the church but you can reverse back a few hundred yards to a turning point.

I loved it here. So peaceful and tranquil. I just wish I had brought a picnic to sit and enjoy/

There was a great river right next to the church. Apparently, you can fish here but need a permit.

The Derryveagh mountains including Muckish and Errigal stand in the distance. Fantastic scenery.

A history lover's and or photographer's dream. (Or even if you just want a quiet spot to sit and chill away from the rat race).

Unless someone local explains how to get to this place it is almost impossible to find even though it has the largest intact stone cross in Ireland. You will need to read up on the history of the place before or after you visit as there is nothing to tell you about the place on the site.
