Burrishoole Friary at dusk

Burrishoole Friary was a Dominican friary in County Mayo, Ireland. Its ruin is a National Monument.

Burrishoole Friary was founded in 1470 by Richard de Burgo of Turlough, Lord MacWilliam Oughter. It was built without the permission of the Pope. In 1486, the Pope instructed the Archbishop of Tuam to forgive the Friars.

The church and the eastern wall of the cloister remain. The grounds of the Friary are an actively used cemetery.

Burrishoole Friary is a few kilometers west of the town of Newport, County Mayo, Ireland. It is often called Burrishoole Abbey.
