Very informative visitors center. The grounds along the Shannon river are beautiful. It was very interesting reading the gravestones that were readable.

Visited on our tour of Ireland. We watched a short video presentation to begin with and then explored the grounds. Make sure you try The Whispering wall.

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.
