This church was apparently built in the 1200s. The stonework is amazing and the inside of the church is beautiful. It's a great site. To come and sit in one of the pews and appreciate the reverence and quiet within.

This 12th century church is one of contrasts. The dark medieval stone construction is in stark contrast to the gorgeous stained glass windows which are truly works of art. The sheer age of this church is awesome for travelers from the United States who haven't...More

This beautiful old building is located right on the main street in Adare, so it is definitely worth a look if travelling through this lovely town since it is not out of the way at all. With the big stone tower attached, this building almost...More

Holy Trinity Abbey Church is a beautifully designed stone building. I enjoy viewing buildings that are architecturally beautiful or different. It's amazing how different each building can be. I glad I was able to see this church.

I like this church as it’s very asymmetrical which is very usual for a Roman Catholic Church. It’s on the Main Street beside the Visitors’ Centre. It’s origins lay with the Trinitarian Order and seemingly the only example of where this order setup a monastery.

Easily accessible with good opening times this church is situated in the Main Street almost opposite the park. It is an attractive grey stone building and is really beautiful inside. Well worth a 10 minute visit of peace and tranquility.

Interesting church in Adare, Ireland. It used to be an abbey but is now the town church. Pretty inside. If you’re in Adare be sure to see it.
