4.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
A simple beauty surrounds Kilmalkedar Church, a Romanesque church founded in the 7th century by St. Maolcethair. Look for an alphabet stone with both 6th-century Latin writing and an inscribed cross inside, plus a sundial stone and holed ogham stones outside. This site is associated strongly with St. Brendan, who, according to legend, lived here. Keep in mind this destination can be a little difficult to find, so take a map on your journey.
