Kilmacdaugh is an early Christian monastery founded by St. Colman. It's a fascinating place to visit and to imagine what it must have been like to live in such a place. You can see the round tower and the holy well, as well as the...More

My husband and I enjoyed the ruin site on our recent trip to Ireland from Florida. It was fascinating to walk through the cemetery and remains of the cathedral. A great deal of history is found here. Recommend a stop here!

Neat spot. We were driving to the Father Ted House, turned a corner & saw the tower in the distance. It has a small parking area & the are is accessible via some gates & some walls with built-in steps.

We saw this in the distance and when the turn came up for it we took it. There is a car park. It is really atmospheric and you can see the monks going about their business. And the tower is great.

Wondered around this site with the old monastic buildings (abbey, tower,etc). It's a quick but interesting stop in the Burren. However, despite being a historical site it is still a functioning grave yard with a mix of old and recent gravestones. Would not recommend visiting...More

Wandering the Burren like Alice in Wonderland, drove by this site and noticed a couple in the distance walking in the ruins. Failing to see a small obscure gate entrance on main road, I went down a side road. Only cows and a farm house...More

Just find your way to Gort, it's not far out of the town. If you take the R460 out of Gort to Corofin, you can't miss it. It's on your right. Well worth a visit
