If you go to the Rock of Cashel, you won't want to miss this hidden gem a few miles away. Although parking is fairly non-existent, that won't be a problem as you will probably be the only one there. We had the place completely for ourselves which helped bump up the 'magical find factor'

This is a short drive from Cashel in the direction of Golden. When you enter the village of Golden turn left at the main junction. The road narrows quite quickly but is easily navigable.

You should see the Abbey on your left hand side maybe a mile or two at the most down the road. When you see a set of iron gates pull over - there is room for one very small car to squeeze into this spot. A stone stile climbs the wall next to the gate - and it is a short walk across the fields and over the bridge into the Abbey.

The peace of this plcae is amazing - it is also in very good condition when compared to the nearby Hore Abbey at Cashel. There are no information boards available - so if you plan on visiting here - you may like to arm yourself with a few printed pages off the internet to help understand the site. Or just go for the atmosphere which is beautiful - especially on summer days.
