  • Instead of staying on N67 and hugging the coast, our GPS redirected us on the route from Galway to the Cliffs of Mohrer. We are so glad it did. This Abbey is in really good condition, with many angles...  more »
  • Visited Corcomroe Abbey May of 2016 while on a day trip from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher. The best way I can describe this place is hauntingly beautiful. So glad the tour stopped here!  more »

  • Corcomroe Abbey is a well preserved ruin! A beautiful spot for photos, it is just a little ways off the main path to and from Cliffs of Moher to the north. Was there on a Sunday and there were several groups of people there, some locals visiting graves, and some tourists as well. Had a nice conversation with a local man about the history of the place, he pointed out two very small adornments, hidden high on the walls, a hound and a hare. He also told stories about how when he was young they could still climb up the corridors that lead up to the tops of the now decaying archway walls. Sounds exciting! All in all, this place is well worth a stop if you appreciate lovely ruins. The accompanying cemetery is in itself quite beautiful, straight out of a movie.
  • Nice 12th century ruins, better to visit summer time. No tours or food or other supplies. Issues with mobile network coverage.
  • Well maintained Abbey. Sufficient parking. Seeing what was built in 1182 is breathtaking.
  • 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
  • Well worth the stop-over for this well kept ruin!
