Clonmacnoise Monastic Site Clonmacnoise

This great monastery was founded in 548 by St Ciaran and was a great centre of learning in medieval times. Many manuscripts were written there. Today see three high crosses and the ruins of a cathedral, seven churches and two round towers set on a mound beside the River Shannon.

Glasnevin Museum Glasnevin Museum

This is the world’s first cemetery museum. A guided tour gives a valuable insight into this unique Victorian burial place and into the final resting place of the men and women who have helped shape Ireland’s past and present.

Ring of Kerry Ring of Kerry
