The atmosphere of early pilgrims and walking where Saint trod adds to the magical forest location on one of the loveliest drives in Ireland. For believers, the Fairy Tree & Well Waters are an added feature of this truely quaint spot.

This place is very special to the people of Sligo and beyond, It would appeal to religious and non-religious people who would just like to reflect on life or just take some quiet time to relax.

This is a delightful place and although it is designed for quiet contemplation, it will appeal also to non-religious people

This is a historic and monumental location. As a regular visitor the grounds are tidy and clean and the location has many interesting places to reflect and nourish our spirituality. The new wall helps to complete the grounds.
