Ireland pictures : Gallery 3 : Burrishoole Abbey, Co Mayo

Burrishoole Abbey is located on the north side of Clew Bay, Co Mayo, between Newport and Mulranny. This 15th century Dominican Friary was constructed on a small tidal inlet of Clew Bay (pictured, below). Across this inlet is Burrishoole Lodge, a large stone building that was home to Ernie O'Malley, the Irish revolutionary-turned-writer who bought the property in 1941. O'Malley's American wife, Helen Hooker, extended the buildings at Burrishoole Lodge to create a sculpture studio for her work.
