Abbey Ruins and Hidden Castle-Moor Hall

Abbey Ruins in Co. Mayo and a long forgotten castle were were so lucky to find..not even signposted 🙂

Moore Hall – famous big house, sadly now abandoned from the Moore Family in Mayo/Ireland. There is an interesting story about this building and the previous owners which we will write up shortly. The property is regarded as the ancestral home of the Moores of Ireland – the most famous being John Moore the Irish Politician. At the time of the Irish Rebellion of 1798 a force of 1,000 French soldiers under General Humbert landed at Killala. Moore joined the French as did a considerable number of his tenants. After the Battle of Castlebar which took place on 27 August 1798, General Humbert, on 31 August 1798, issued the following decree, which inter alia appointed John Moore as the President of the Government of the Province of Connacht:

Lough Carra-County Mayo.Small lake beside Lough Mask.Between Ballinrobe,Ballintubber and Claremorris.

We stayed in a lovely Airbnb that overlooked this lake…we arrived close to sunset…..too good an opportunity to miss. The scenery was stunning – the mountains in the backdrop. We used the area as our base for visiting the historic sites in the area. It is meant to be a nice fishing lake – but I did not get to test this 🙂 In Ireland Lough means – large freshwater area – basically from Irish it means “a lake, pool”.

There are a few small towns in the area – but the lough is in the area called Partry – between Ballintober, Ballinrobe and not too far from Claremorris.

Ballintubber Abbey-Famous Irish Abbey-Ballintubber-Claremorris-Mayo-Ireland-Drone-Croagh Patrick

Ballintubber Abbey is an abbey two kilometres northeast of the village of Ballintubber, County Mayo in Ireland that was founded by King Cathal Crobdearg Ua Conchobair in 1216.

While it was damaged during penal times – it was still used and was restored in 1966 with more work completed in 1997. It celebrated 800 years in existence in 2016.

The abbey has many attractions and holy stations outside in the grounds of the Abbey.

The abbey marks the beginning of Tochar Phádraig, the ancient pilgrimage route to Croagh Patrick, long defunct but now reopened as a cross-country pilgrimage and tourist trail.

More recently it is famous for who gets married in the abbey – The James Bond star Pierce Brosnan married former TV journalist Keely Shaye Smith at Ballintubber Abbey in County Mayo.

St Anne’s Cathedral-Cathedral Quarter-Belfast. An historic Cathedral-360 Degree Video- Built in1899

St Anne’s Cathedral, also known as Belfast Cathedral, is a cathedral of the Church of Ireland in Belfast, Northern Ireland. It is unusual in serving two separate dioceses Connor and Down and Dromore, and is the focal point of the Cathedral Quarter in Northern Ireland’s capital city.
Built over a period of 80 years, the foundation stone to Belfast Cathedral was laid in 1899 and the nave was consecrated in 1904. The new Cathedral was built around the old Parish Church, which remained in use up until 27th December 1903, when the last service was held in it. The parish church, with the exception of the Sanctuary, which was incorporated in to the new Cathedral, was then demolished. In 1981 the North Transept was finished and in 2007 the addition of the Spire of Hope was made to the Cathedral.

Leitrim Lodge-Game Of Thrones Location-The Mourne Way – Rocky Mountain Mournes-Newry

Leitrim Lodge-The Mourne Way leads a gentle walk through the Mountains of Mourne. On Google seek out Leitrim Lodge Car Park – in Co. Down ( not down south! ) . This leads to a path that crosses the Skanky River ( which feeds into the River Bann and on to the Atlantic ). If you walk far enough you will see Pierce’s Castle and have a gentle time hill walking or mountain walking through the Irish Rocky Mountain – part of the Mourne Mountain Way.
If you are tempted by a peaceful hill walk – then do consider the Leitrim Lodge Mourne walk and have some amazing views of the Mourne Way Mountains. The site is also a little known location for filming of Game Of Thrones!

In GPS use 114 Leitrim Rd, Newry BT34 5XX Not too far from Rostrevor Forest, Rostrevor, Warrenpoint and more! We go back to the homeland of Narnia – where CS Lewis got his inspiration for his Narnia lands.
