The Abbey is an incredible church and very well preserved. A must see if you are in the area. Also there is a beautiful statue of the Madonna in the front along the street.

This church is open to the public and you are able to walk around in the main sanctuary. The stained glass here is really beautiful. There is a dovecote in the back of the property that is worth checking out.

The history of this Abbey is as interesting as the Abbey it's self. Outside the Abbey is large and very grand. Inside it is well worth a visit to see the decorative altar and the stained glass windows.

As attractive as any church in Ireland. Not large but quite beautiful inside. Located central Adare and would highly recommend a visit.

Went to Sunday mass. Very old world. Priest said a rosary before Mass. Loved it. Parts in Latin. Had a knelling rail to take communion like we did when I was a child.

We happened to be in town on Sunday and went here for mass. Fastest mass I ever attended! The church itself was great.
