An atmospheric old church ruin. Views out over the Atlantic Ocean. No official car park but plenty of off road parking. The site is surrounded by a burial ground.

This place is wonderful, not touched or made touristy. I wouldn't want to go there at night, and oddly there are new gravestones there. You can make promises to keep forever through the the ancient standing stone with the hole!

We visited here while driving around the peninsula. The Church itself was pretty and the cemetery and other monuments on the grounds very interesting. Would recommend a visit here.

This is an interesting chapel ruins, similar in some ways to the one at the Rock of Cashel but with some unique elements. Be sure to look for the Ogham stone and alphabet stone, as well as the sundial. There is also a narrow hole...More

Lovely old stone church. We found that visiting the graveyard and ruins was a haunting experience. So many ruined churches across the Irish landscape. Worth the visit, but our late afternoon timing was bad as it was crowded with two tour buses.

A little way off of the Slea Head drive, but worth the extra drive. Don't miss the Ogham stone! It's free and usually not crowded at all - you may be the only one there!

It a ruin. It’s free. I been there about 4 times with a group. If you’re nearby then stop. Otherwise, it’s not worth the extra drive.

We loved this little out of the way church ruin. What we also loved was that there was no one else at the site and we had it all to ourselves. It is definitely worth the trip to see it.
