Well worth a visit, this is a beautiful, peaceful and spiritual space that is very old and historically important. Step out of the busy street and imagine the generations of people who have prayed here.

We visited here whilst in Killaloe and were delighted to find it open. It is beautiful inside with lots of history that is all documented on information boards. It is very old and the history interesting.

It wasn't open on the Monday we were there, but we strolled around the grounds. They are lovely; the signage was pretty good; the history impressive.
