I stopped at Clonmacnoise during my kayaking trip from Athlone to Limerick. Approaching Clonmacnoise from the river is an unforgetful experience. You can imagine the place as it was a thousand years ago, as there are no modern buildings nearby, and even though most of the larger constructions are much more recent. There is an excellent mooring port, and the museum is great (don't miss the documentary screened inside).
