Quin is a village in southeast County Clare in Ireland and a Catholic parish and civil parish of the same name. The main attraction, Quin Abbey, is open to the public, and although mostly ruined, much of the structure remains. The abbey was built on the foundations of an earlier Norman castle, and the foundations of its corner towers can still be seen.
