Kilmacduagh is an easy side trip along the route from Shannon airport to Galway and was the perfect start to our Ireland vacation. It is only minutes from the main highway and worth the effort to see these splendid ruins. Make sure you instruct the...More

This place is amazing, bearing the history from 7th Century! We visited the place this morning. would be great place for family visit. The route to this monument is kinda long detour! the other problem is that there is no Toilet when you get there.

Kilmacduagh is off the regular bus route, so you're not inundated with crowds. This is one of the few towers still standing in Ireland and is situated on the outskirts of the Burren. The ruins of the church and related buildings are well preserved. Stop...More

I get such an appreciation of the past when you see these enormous solid stone structures still standing. It’s a quiet place. You have access to look at all the buildings there. There were just a few people milling around. Your imagination wonders to what...More

These ruins are marvelous, the best we have seen in Ireland, and with an impact rating close to the Forum in Rome. They seem to suddenly appear out of nowhere as you drive from Gort to Corofin along the open, eastern barren hills of Burren...More

Just find your way to Gort, it's not far out of the town. If you take the R460 out of Gort to Corofin, you can't miss it. It's on your right. Well worth a visit
