Not a whole lot to see and do at this site but interesting all the same. The ruins and surrounding areas are kept very neat and tidy. It's in a really quiet place. Lovely spot to come and clear your head with little or no...More

This is an out of the way church ruin which we enjoyed photographing. The tower is very nice and along with the church ruins makes a nice photo if you proceed through the gate and go out into the field to take the photo.

Historic ruins of the Church of St Benen, dating back to the 5th century. Located three km north of Tuam. This was the once mother church of the Archdiocese of Tuam and older than Tuam itself. Now part of a small local cemetery.
