I went all the way to Mayo to visit the Abbey after visiting there over 20 years ago. To my disappointment I couldn't access the Abbey because the route over farmland is closed and warning signs for bulls in place. Wild Atlantic way - Closed

Yes, you have to walk through a cow padture. Yes, the sign about the bull is very likely to discourage visitors, as we saw no bull. Just watch where you step as you walk across the field. The abbey is in remarkably good shape, considering it's age. I got wonderful pictures. Be a bit brave, climb the stile, watch out for the piles and go visit close up.

In the middle of a grazing field along the sea shore sits this enormous medieval abbey, in relatively good shape. So impressive. You do have to hike through the farmers field to reach it but it has been fenced off for tourists and historical plaques are there once you do reach it!

Not easy access, you need pass the field with the cows. Road is narrow but worth to visit. Nice place for a walk with the kids. Peaceful.
