Directions & Maps

We welcome you to visit! Located in picturesque Allegany County, Mt. Irenaeus is very typical of what you might find in the county. Rolling hills and trails to hike, simple people and all four distinct seasons. Allegany County is in the southern tier of New York with a population of just fewer than 50,000. We’re surrounded by the small towns of Cuba, West Clarksville, Portville, Belmont and Friendship. It is not uncommon to see the Amish with their horses and buggies sharing the road and roadside stands selling vegetables, baked goods and handmade furniture and crafts.

Here’s how to find us:

PHYSICAL ADDRESS

3621 Roberts Road, Friendship, NY 14739

CAUTION: GPS INFORMATION

Please use GPS coordinates with caution. We are located in a rural area and GPS directions oftentimes send guests to roads that are only passable during certain seasons. For example, GPS may direct you to the north end of Roberts Road (near Route 1), which is not usually passable in the winter and early spring. Please use Hydetown Road one mile to the east of Roberts Road instead.
