We were in the area so we decided to visit this beautiful peaceful place.There is not a lot of car parking places but we were lucky that one came available.We paid €7 each and it was well worth it. The guy on the ticket desk was very pleasant and informed us that we were just time for the video presentation,which... 更多
this is a great place to stop when traveling between Galway and Dublin. Allow time to watch the 20 minute video to get a better understanding of the historical significance. And then take a guided tour. The site isn't very large so is easily walked. Lovely location on the Shannon river. The staff we met were so friendly and helpful.... 更多
We arrived just before the tour buses started arriving in the morning, so for a brief period there were not many tourists, which made it much easier for us to read about the artifacts inside and take our time without huge crowds. I recommend watching the educational video first, especially if you're not familiar with the site. That way, as... 更多
I had a different expectation of the site than what I encountered. The OPW have made the site interesting. The old buildings are amazing as are their historical significance. Pity the buildings are not labelled as the site map is difficult to read. The toilets are terrible and need to be cleaned and upgraded. The coffee shop is only fair.... 更多

Beautiful stop and definitely worth it if you enjoy the history and beautiful views. The old crosses are breathtaking and the ruins of the building are worth walking through. We thoroughly enjoyed our stop here on our way to Galway from Dublin. Get there before 10:00 when the tour buses start coming in!
This site has its historical value, but there is not much to see except a few rock crosses. There are better sites in Ireland where to see similar historical values. But this is only one in central Ireland I guess...
Such a beautiful stop along our way to Roscommon. Light rains fell as we walked amid the monastic ruins, but this only seemed to add to the beauty all around us. Views of the Shannon River were awesome, and it was hard to take in the fact that these buildings date back to the 5th Century. Took a tour of... 更多
I had never heard of Clonmacnoise until seeing that it was a stop on our tour. The setting is lovely, and the history of the site is fascinating. Be sure to watch the movie in the visitors center for an overview of what you are seeing.
