Clare Abbey is a Medieval Abbey and graveyard on the outskirts of Ennis, County Clare. Very easy access and worth a visit when visiting the area. No facilities, but close to town.

Having passed it numerous times on the by-pass, we decided to park up and go and see it. I'm glad we did. A 10minute walk that is paved some of the way leads you to the Abbey. You have to go over a "kissing wall"...More

Lovely! I am a bit unsteady on my feet so I did not get to enjoy it as much, as you had to climb up a few large rocks and thru a narrow passage way to see it fully. I wish the farmers that owned...More

Clare abbey is on private land next to the train track and motorway exit 12 link road to Ennis. There is a road off the limerick road roundabout that brings you close to it but after that it's over a farmers gate and trudge through...More
