My Aunt Lena from America came to visit and was treated to a fantastic informative tour with Anthony Sheehy. It is well worth contacting the Askeaton tourism office and asking for a tour with Anthony Sheehy for this beautiful historic building.

Anthony Sheehy gave us an unforgettable imaging of the Friary....what a treat! His knowledge, friendly demeanor and enthusiasm were infectious. This was the last tour we had in Ireland....and by far the best.
