Walking around the ruins of 12th Century Bridgetown Priory you can really become absorbed in the past. The buildings are extensively restored and well documented with sketches and descriptions of the way the different buildings were used in the past. The setting is so tranquil and beautiful that you will certainly spend more time than you had intended there. Somewhat off the beaten track but easily accessible from Castletownroche in County Cork this site is well worth a visit. Its location mans that it is never overcrowded.Nearby Castletownroche is a beautiful village steeped in traditions and history and set in a beautiful location. If travelling to or from Killarney this route via Fermoy brings you through the town and makes for a picturesque and interesting stop on your journey. Hve a brandy in the town where Richard Hennessey was born.
