This is way off the beaten path but well worth it. Where else can you have extensive grounds of ancient ruins all to yourself. Really lovely and quite. Don't miss. You could have a great picnic there if you thought ahead, but we didn't!

This ruined monastery is worth a visit if you're in the Castletownroche area. There are signposts along the road, it was easy to find. You'll most likely have the place all to your self, apart from the wheeling crows. It's a beautiful site, tucked in...More

Off the beaten track - don't rely on your sat nav to find it. Ask locally for directions. Calming and quiet. We were the only people there.
