Great, well worth the time to see Irish history. You have to let your Ming wander and imagine you are 700 years in the past.

Beautiful remains of an ancient Abbey. Exquisite Mason work. Beautiful cemetery. A lovely place to walk around and admire Irish history. It's too bad the owner had to kill the 5 Mason's so that no one would have a building as beautiful as this. A...More

The 12th century abbey isn't overly commercialised and a must see if you want to walk around the ruins in peace and quiet. There wasn't another person when we were there and it is free. So, we were able to explore and take photos of...More

The place is nice but there is not much to see there. It's out of the way and I would not make a special trip to see it.

This ruin looks interesting from the road but on parking up we found that dogs weren't allowed on the site, which is a shame. What's the problem so long as people bring poo bags? Most people are responsible nowadays. Hey ho, it's only a ruined...More

After driving the Irish coast for three weeks, ruins of abbeys and cathedrals become very commonplace; however, it is important to remember that each one has a remarkable history that continues to this day as the sites continue to be used as cemeteries. Having already...More

Nestled off the beaten path is this lovely old abbey that is still used as a cemetery. The local folks keep it up beautifully and it is surrounded by lovely countryside, completely isolated. What a delightful find!

The ruins of this 13th-century Cistercian monastery were one of our Trafalgar Tour Director's "hidden treasure" photo stops. The serene location is very peaceful (notwithstanding 48 coach travelers traipsing around the abbey ruins and the cemetery taking photos.) The L1014 road passes close to the...More

An out of the way ruin worth the stop for a quiet stroll through beautiful ruins, it's easy to get lost in the broken halls and imagine the people who once walked them. It has on site parking and we were alone for most of...More

Instead of staying on N67 and hugging the coast, our GPS redirected us on the route from Galway to the Cliffs of Mohrer. We are so glad it did. This Abbey is in really good condition, with many angles and arches and outbuildings to make...More
