Nice site. We were there with a tour guide and that really helps the place come alive. For example what looks like a hole in the ground was actually where they dried their grain in a wet climate so they could make bread. The fire...More

This was the second time I brought a small group of American tourists to Riasc. It's a magical place. You can easily imagine life in the early centuries of Christianity, including many stones and etches of a pagan nature. Great blend of ancient and modern...More

This place of mystery and beauty offers a quick stop to view a historical well maintained site. Rare standing stones and panoramic views are breath-taking.

It might take you a bit to get there but you will be happy to see it! The structure will give you a better understanding of life within the beehive community.

It is unlikely to take even an hour to take in this stop, but it is certainly worth it to add it to a Slea Head Drive or Wild Atlantic Way drive.

Really nicely laid out. You get a real feel for what it was. And it is not at all touristy, which makes a nice change

A bit of an effort to find, but Maps.Me did a good job getting us there in the end. A beautiful monastic site well preserved given its age. A wonderful place to reflect and contemplate surrounded by low and rolling hills.

Just after leaving Ballyferriter you will pass a microbrewery on the right. The next road you come to (a very narrow road, you will hardly think it is a road) is the road to Riasc. There is a stone marking that the curb of the...More
