    A site of great Christian impact that has been restored and presented tastefully and with great humility. A 'pilgrimage' laid out around the grounds brings to life the part the Abbey played in receiving pilgrims to Croagh Patrick and the resolute Faith under the Penal Laws. When we visited, Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament was being held in a small chapel/oratory off the main interior structure; simple, plain white-washed walls provided an environment that stimulated prayerful devotion.
