A hidden gem in a marvellous place for everyone who is interested in ancient irish history, ruins or just lovely places with an impressive atmosphere. This friary is a real "must have" on your sightseeing tour around all the fine places in Ireland!!!
Only a few minutes to go from the village centre you can visit Askeaton Abbey - a brilliant ancient friary in ruins. Just turn right at the tourist information and follow the road until the end - the friary is on the left side - and take a tour on your own. Notice: the gate in front of the friary is open daily - just pass through. Now I know how to handle it, Anthony ;o) Thanks a lot ...
Askeaton Abbey is full of history, historical facts and great discoveries. For a fantastic experience just call Anthony Sheehy (call him on the mobile phone +353860850174 or ask for him in the tourist information). He is a great man with a brilliant sense of humor working as a voluntary tour guide in Askeaton - ask him for a guided tour - you will enjoy it!
Thanks a million, Anthony, for two fantastic afternoons in Askeaton ;o) ... We took a tour and got
a great time free!!! We are coming back for sure - be blessed and stay the man you are !!! Take care & see you, the two german plastic paddy´s Thorsten & Kathrin
