We were wanting to look at Castles in late October. Only one that could be toured. Thought is was neat with neat history. Ate at Pub across the street for lunch.

Like several others who posted about Quin Abbey, we just happened upon the ruined abbey, while on our way to Craggaunowen Living History Museum. What a pleasant and beautiful surprise! Quin Abbey is worth being a destination, not just an unexpected stop.

Completely off the beaten track but near Ennis. Enormous ruin with a completely intact cloisters and side chapels. Hauntingly beautiful. Still used for burials.

No charge to enter.

I've always been a lover of history, so the Quin abbey ruins stand out to me. It's always interesting to view a structure that is older than all the countries in the western hemisphere. I also feel a certain connection to the abbey and Quin in general as my surname is featured on several of the grave markers.

We visited Quin Abbey on our way in and around the Burren, it is in ruins but it was very impressive and easy to imagine the shear size of it when it was an active abbey, this definitely is a must see, there is no admission charge to enter and it wasn't crowded, Abbey Tavern & Bar is directly across the street from the abbey and is an excellent place to eat, try the bacon & cabbage, it was superb

An of-the-beaten-track place we stumbled across. Not as ruined as some it the other places. No one there, just some information boards.

One of the best cloisters in Ireland. Easy access to the Abbey.If you can see it at night the lights are very effective.
