  • The 12th century abbey isn't overly commercialised and a must see if you want to walk around the ruins in peace and quiet. There wasn't another person when we were there and it is free. So, we were ab...  more »
  • The place is nice but there is not much to see there. It's out of the way and I would not make a special trip to see it.  more »
  • This ruin looks interesting from the road but on parking up we found that dogs weren't allowed on the site, which is a shame. What's the problem so long as people bring poo bags? Most people are respo...  more »

  • Such a beautiful place to be with friends. The Abbey was amazing and the view spectacular. The center here was also very interesting and informative.
  • Awesome area to explore! Loved seeing the ruins and also appreciated being able to explore without an associated cost.
  • 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.
