Thai is an interesting link to the past. There was a guy there who was very helpful giving us the history of the place. Cromwell and Henry VIII have a lot to answer for!

The Heritage Center told us where the friary was, a ten minute walk, and it was; HOWEVER, we could not enter the chapel. The outside looked pretty cool, but I wanted to see the inside.

Someplace that I never thought I would go, and seemed surreal when I was there. If you are a photographer, do not miss this opportunity. This is a great place to get amazing pictures!

There are some very old buildings in Adare that make you feel like you got stuck in a time capsule hundreds of years ago. I loved the architecture of the Friary and would advise anyone to check it out! Beautiful grounds as well.

This place is quite nice and if you would like to visit the near Old Franciscan Friary, it worths for walkabout.
