Great location in the heart of Kings Island.

A fascinating graveyard in the shadow of the castle, couldn't access the church. The views of Clancy Strand are fantastic.

The church is closed but you can walk around the grounds and see very old graves. It is located across the way from King John's Castle.

This is the Church of Ireland St. Munchins on the same side of the river as King John's Castle, not to be confused with the Roman Catholic St. Munchins on the other side of the river. The churchyard is open weekdays during usual working hours but the church itself is permanently closed. The headstones are interesting and the view is... More

We took a stroll through the grounds of this church. The cemetery on the grounds is a peaceful place for a stroll. The interior of the church was not open. The exterior of this church is beautiful! This is not the same St. Munchin's church that is on Clancy Strand (as noted in the tripadvisor listing). However, it is the... More
