Thailand has its wats, India has its temples, and Mayo has its abbeys. We are truly blessed to have such magnificent examples of historically significant religious architecture in the county. And on Westport’s doorstep, there are no less than five to visit.
These awesome abbeys will raise the hairs on your neck and fill your soul with a sense of wonder. Christian or not, visitors find themselves besotted with these buildings, their heritage and their history. Go and take a look, and spread the abbeyness.
