A must be seen spot near motorway High crosses, old ruins and a beautiful tourist centre that explains history through intersting film and interactive displays. Not expensive, small coffee shop and larger gift centre outside in car park.

the main feature are the very special Celtic crosses which have been placed inside to protect them. The description of each cross is detailed and very informative. Outside the site is beautiful overlooking the Shannon river.

Interesting ruins. I recommend watching the video first so you have a better idea what you’re looking at. This was my first stop after arriving in Ireland. Good place to pick up the heritage card too.
