"Clonmacnoise" Clonmacnoise by mvtouring

Clonmacnoise Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 54 photos

I saw a programme on Clonmacnoise and knew that it had to be included in our trip. I was not dissappointed even though it was one of our few rainy days in Ireland. This early Christian site was founded by Saint Ciaran in the mid 6th century on the banks of the River Shannon. The site included the ruins of a cathedral, seven churches, two round towers, three high crosses and the largest collection of Early Christian graveslabs in Ireland. The original high crosses are on display in the visitor centre on site.
