I had read the reviews before going and we made sure we had time for this abbey. We had the place to ourselves on a Saturday afternoon. We weren't sure where to park (GPS wasn't so sure) and we ended up parking across a stream,...More

These are beautiful ruins, but there is not a lot to see here. Nice to stop and break the trip on narrow roads.

The Abby is free of charge and parking is convenient right near by. Impressive Abby ruins built from the remains of an earlier Castle. Wander at your own pace through the doorways and graves that are scattered around.

Unless I missed a seasonal exception, we stopped by here around 1030L (well after the advertised opening time) on our way to the Cliffs of Moher and the gates were locked. It appeared there was an area down the street that might have been the...More

It's a really nice place to visit if you're nearby, it's basically a Fort that was converted later to a Abbey. It's in ruins but is maintained and its worth the visit!

Last time we went there were no opening hours but there was somebody taking care of the place and made sure we don't step or sit on the wrong places. After 6 pm he closed the gates but you could go around and find an... More
