“Good Example of an Irish Village”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

This gave a great idea of what people lived like in Ireland long ago. The layout and community structure. It is a big pile of rocks but interesting to us.

“A wonderful chance encounter with a historic site”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We came across this historic monastic community more of less by chance. We were really impressed and enjoyed wandering around the site and reading about it's historical significance. There is no cost and the site is really well maintained and appears to be quite quiet - one other couple arrived as we were leaving. We then went on to visit the Gallaras site. The 2 sites really complement each other and are both well worth a visit to add to the experience of a very spiritual Ireland.

“Monastry Sight”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Kind of awkward to find but well worth it - If you look carefully you can see the remains of the stone circle that it was originally built in but the guide books don't mention it

Reviewed June 18, 2012

This is an early monastic settlement in Ireland. It is definately worthwhile visiting. It gave me a sense of history being here.
