A short 30-45 minute visit, as you can't really go into the ruins but can walk around taking good pictures. No other tourists and some very friendly cows.

Came across the ruins on the way to visit the Burren and took time to stop and look around. A very interesting extended site, you can walk around and explore. There is a car park and you can look around in your own time. Although the buildings are roof less you get a very good idea of how it must have been with tower rising like a modern grain silo silhouetted against the sky. So glad we stopped. Added interest is the graveyard and inquisitive cows.

It's full of interesting ruins, and you can get in, the people in the house across the street have keys for which you are asked to leave a deposit. It's supposed to have the tallest round tower in existence. Lovely to visit such a place without hoards of tourists.

What an amazing untouch ed monastic settlement. It is a super site on the edge of the burren near Gort in County Galway. Free to enter. Great photo opportunity.

Interesting place! Too bad we could not go inside of the ruins. It's actually a nice place for photos.
