Clonmacnoise Monastic Site




An Early Christian site founded by St. Ciarán in the mid-6th century on the eastern bank of the River Shannon. The site includes the ruins of a cathedral, seven churches (10th  -13th century), two round towers, three high crosses and the largest collection of Early Christian graveslabs in Western Europe. The original high crosses and a selection of graveslabs are on display in the visitor centre. The long and varied history of Clonmacnoise is recounted in an audiovisual presentation shown in the visitor centre. There are also exhibitions that deal with the flora, fauna and landscape of the region.




Slieve Bloom Mountains

Slieve Bloom Mountains


The area is made up of forests, blanket bog of a type which is unique to Ireland, interspersed with hidden valleys of great character, and interest to the nature lover. It includes farmland bounded by hedgerows full of bird and plant life. The natural colours of the landscape are remarkable in any season. It is an extremely peaceful area which permits the opportunity to be close to nature. Much of the higher reaches of the mountains have been designated as an Environmentally Protected area for special preservation, as an amenity for generations to come. As a consequence, there are plenty of sign-posted walks, explanatory boards regarding wildlife and flora and fauna, and designated picnic areas.
