  • This was one of my favorite ruins that I went to in Ireland. It is very beautiful and you can still use some of the stairs unlike other ruins where they block off their stairs. Also, it was founded in 1531! So cool.
  • Gorgeous place to visit in both cloudy and sunny weather. Fairly secluded and worth a short visit. Peaceful and beautiful.
  • My wife and I were here April 2016. We had the whole place to ourselves and was greeted by a local man out for a walk who gave us the history of the place. A wonderful place to spend a few hours wandering around and photographing it.
  • This is a great ruin to tour. It's quiet and not a lot of people and it's BIG. No tour busses can get in here so cars onky so thats why it's so quiet. If you have a chance check this one out
  • Beautiful old friary ruin site. Worth the trek to check it out. It was surprisingly large
