Cycling the Mayo’s Monasteries of the Moy

This is a self-guided adventure so you can take it at your own pace.

Monasteries of the MoyStart your cycle at the Quay, Ballina and follow the River Moy up through the town of Ballina as you watch the salmon leap, continue on through Belleek woods and watch out for the red squirrels. You might be tempted to stop off at the Connacht Whiskey Company and take a tour to discover the art of whiskey making. After passing through the beautiful Belleek woods,  take a right onto a country road and after 4km you will see a sign for Rosserk Abbey. It’s a 400 metre cycle down and is certainly worth it to explore the Franciscan monks way of life. It’s then onto the historic port village of Killala where you can stop off in On the Way cafe for tea and homemade scones. You have now completed 17km and you can choose to cycle back or get a pick-up to bring you onto Downpatrick head and continue your trip. A nice option for lunch on route is Mary’s cottage in Ballycastle if you continue your cycle further or Jack Fenn’s at Belleek castle.
