Religious Site
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.

  • Awesome history here, the church is well kept and there is a Ogham Stone to renew your vows. Plenty to see and there is a hiking trail behind to climb to the top of the hill
  • A small stone church surrounded by a cemetery and fields. There is no entry fee.
  • They say that only people who can get through the window at the end can enter heaven.
  • Great stop!
  • I accidentally pushed this, I have not been here
