  • There are three amazing very tall sandstone crosses in the graveyard of this old monastery. The detail on these 10th centuary crosses is still incredibly clear. The tallest cross is about 6 meters hig...  more »
  • What a wonderful heritage site. Fantastic displays, so informative, highly recommend a visit here. You will be amazed at the history of the area. 
  • But unfortunately not well preserved monastic site rich in history. Note the beautiful circular tower (you cannot visit) and, especially, the two beautiful Celtic crosses: the West Cross, 6.5 m high; the gorgeous High Cross of Muiredach, considered the most beautiful of Ireland, characterized by well preserved reliefs relating to the new and the old testament. Mystical place; essential for those who, travelling, want to permeate the culture of this wonderful island. Visit not chargeable. Highly recommended excursion.
