  • Seemingly in the middle of nowhere, Corcomroe Abbey was quite a nice find. I couldn't get over how old it was, and yet some of the graves were still being attended to. I'm not sure I would search this...  more »
  • Lost in the North delka burren region rises this ancient Abbey in ruins around its cemetery which still is used. Council spending for a ride before descending to the cliffs.

  • I recommend having a brief stop here, if passing through. The Interior of the old Abbey is quite impressive and there are tombstones both inside and outside, too.

  • Where: Corcomroe Abbey - County Clare, Ireland What: A well preserved Abbey How was it: This was part of our Cliffs of Moher tour. It was one of the last stops we made before returning to Dublin. It was nice to see something like this in real life. Until that point, we had only seen similar places in movies. If you do the same tour as us, chances are you'll stop by here. The reason we give 4* versus 5* is because we felt like we didn't get the proper instructions and history. Otherwise we probably would have enjoyed it more. It is special and you can walk around and through the Abbey. Grade: Eli = 4, Serge = 4+ Recommend: Yes
  • Interesting Abbey ruins with gravestones and Celtic crosses. A beautiful stop and well worth a detour to see.
  • Ruined Abbey with a graveyard to its side. If you stop on a trip while visiting some other places nearby it's O.K._
  • Made a small stop here while on a tour. A very nice place to explore. Nice little abbey with a graveyard. The place is basically a ruin. Seems to be in good repair and maintained, but would love to see it fully restored. Good photo opportunities. Wouldn't come by here on my own though.
  • Interesting stop in the Burren area. A bit creepy being among so many old graves but interesting to learn about the history.
