Once a grand mansion belonging to an aristocratic Irish family, Moore Hall is now a sombre site. Overtaken by nature, its empty windows are filled by lengths of ivy. Its former owner, John Moore, was the first president of any kind in Ireland. Built in the 1790s, the house burnt down during the civil war in 1923, and has yet to be restored.

Founded in 1216, Ballintubber Abbey is the only church in Ireland founded by an Irish king and still remains in use. While its appearance doesn’t compare to any of Ireland’s grand cathedrals, its history is a showcase of impressive triumph, having escaped destruction numerous times.
Croagh Patrick, commonly referred to as The Reek, is often thought of as the holiest mountain in Ireland. The cone shaped peak, which juts out from the countryside, has been a significant place of pilgrimage for 5,000 years.
Legend has it that Ireland’s patron saint – Saint Patrick – fasted for 40 days and 40 nights atop the mountain in 442 AD, and forever banished snakes from Ireland here. Around one million pilgrims still visit each year to celebrate the saint. But even for those not on a pilgrimage, the mountain, at 750 metres high, provides excellent views of Clew and the surrounding landscape.
