Had a lovely visit on a wet day in July. We didn’t know what to expect but are so glad that we visited. Most of it is outdoors but there are some indoor parts where you can shelter from any Irish showers. It’s free to enter and it’s self guided. We loved wandering around and we found it quite safe for the kids. Some parts were under construction and restricted access but well worth stopping for 30mins or more.

We were looking for something to do after landing in Shannon so we decided to stop at Quin Abbey. It was a cold and windy morning and we probably did not dress for it but the place was very cool. The arrangement of the graves were awesome and the abbey itself was worth the stop.

Other travelers recommended this place and I'm so glad they did. It was so interesting, a little bit creepy and a whole lot of history. Spent quite a bit of time walking through the ruins and were amazed at the ages of some of the stones. So much history and voices in the ruins.

We found this a lovely peaceful place to stroll around on a quiet Sunday morning. Dating from the fifteenth century, the abbey is in pretty good condition apart from being mostly roofless, and there’s an original cloister which remains intact. It’s picturesque, it’s free to visit, and there’s plenty of parking nearby.
