Loved the place, atmospheric old traditions in Saint Monimas grave (think that's how it's spelt) if you like old cemeteries you'll like this.

Really old monastic site set in the Heart of South Armagh. A real piece of Irish History (plus one single commonwealth grave from 1916). Well worth a visit.

We had known of the Killevy Churches from some tourist maps we had obtained at our B&B, but stumbled upon them while taking a "short-cut" across a hill side while following signs to a cairn. We never did find the cairn, but the church ruins, graveyard, and the history surrounding them more than made up for that. We spent an... More

There are no tourist attraction there just the authentic 11th and 15th century churches built on the site of a monastery from the 6th century.
