If you are in the area a trip to Clonmacnoise is well worth the time and effort. Roads there are not great but not too bad. We spent a really interesting time wandering around this ancient and historical site. The 20 minute film in the auditorium was really interesting and informative. It really gives an insight into what was quite... 更多
Lived near here for 26 years and never made an effort to see this wonderful place, took me another 20 years before I finally made the effort with my wife and kids. This is a site that you just can't miss. It has lot of history on this spot. It gives you the insight of the Celtic Cross and the... 更多
Came upon this during our day of travel and well worth the visit. The visitors center has a film of the story of this monastery started by St. Ciarin and houses some gold and ancient celtic crosses. Outdoors you can view the ruins of the monastery and very old graves with Celtic crosses everywhere.
Ask if there are any bus tours coming in, and if so, can you tag along on the tour .... so much better going with a guide ! On the OPW Heritage card (this card has to be the bargain of the year !). I've been about 4 times, and I learn something new every time ! Special place !
Clonmacnoise is really a beautiful place in really nice setting. It is recommended to get the short video on the history and significance of the place, then it is self guided for the rest of the tour. There's informations to read in the visitor center before venturing for a visit outdoor. Could benefit from the option of guided tours in... 更多
I grew up very close to Clonmacnoise but hadn't visited since I was in primary school. The setting of the monastery on the banks of the River Shannon is beautiful. The self-guided tour gives a reasonable idea of the history, although I think a guided tour would have been more informative. Lovely way to spend a few hours.
We visited here as we had a few hours free whilst visiting the area. We found it very interesting. The video on the history was very informative and my 4 year old found it easy to understand and interesting. The only downside is that to visit all the buildings we had to push the buggy on grassy hills as there... 更多
Absolutely loved Clonmacnoise Monastic Site. Fantastic interpretive centre really adds to the visit with lots of interactive displays and exhibits. The monastery itself is resplendent by the River Shannon with beautiful high crosses and a round tower. The church and other buildings are really impressive and give a pretty interesting picture of what this place must've been like in its... 更多
