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.

Well worth a visit. It is amazing to think this fine building has survived for centuries.
There is an excellent explanation of the Friary, which highlights the location and history.

We've visited Dromahair before and I can't believe that we missed this ! It's not very well advertised and we found it by chance .
It's beautiful , quite a substantial ruin with lots of really interesting features .
It still amazes me that these places were built at all !!
Well worth visiting .

Explored the historic Abbey with no-one else around. Quite eerie and real sense of history as we wandered in and out of the ruins. Really good panels throughout clearly describing the form and function along with the history over hundreds of years. Seeing the town of Dromahair in the distance we decided to walk down the hill and follow the pathe running beside the river into the village. A complete step back in time and a really pleasant experience, absolutely loved this place.

Really worth discovering. A large site that must have had great importance in its day. Do seek out the ancient carvings in the cloister, and look at the newer graves. There is one with an offering of spoons. Any ideas anyone what they mean?

walked from Slish woods to Dromahair to complete the walk, the Friary is very near the end and it is an amazing place, a labyrinth which just keeps going after you enter the small doorway, great architecture and history in this place.

The Wild Atlantic Way seems oblivious to the charms of Dromahair. Creevelea is located on the fringes of the village. It only had a short life in the sixteenth century, before it fell foul of Reformist zeal. A beautiful tracery window is still intact, as is a good part of the cloister. Overlooking the Bonet River, with headstones remembering surprisingly recent burials, this quiet ruin is certainly worth a visit.
