At the ancient crossroads of Ireland
This religious site was once at the main crossroads of Ireland, where all paths and the River Shannon linked up. The monastery itself was founded by St. Ciarán in the year 544 and it became one of the most famous in the country, as an important center of religious, learning and craft. Nowadays it’s a peaceful place to visit, set on a quite spot beside the River Shannon and there are the remains of two round towers, seven stone churches, a cathedral and three high crosses, as well as many old gravestones to see.
