Although not extensive, the friary ruins are rather interesting to visit. They're a little bit out of town but if you have time take the very short drive. There are a couple of nice photo ops. An added bonus is the lovely church adjacent to the ruins. Still operating today. Some nice stained glass windows.
Not a lot to see, and very overgrown with weeds. Surprising, given that Adare is supposed to be one of Ireland's prettiest villages that the Friary wasn't better kept.
We went wandering and found out way back to this friary that we had driven by on the way into town. There was a friendly little dog and a cat that walked with us as we came up the drive to the friary itself. It is labeled as a school and so as others say it is still a functioning... 更多

Perhaps not as immediately photogenic as the Trinitarian friary in the village centre AND quite a trek on foot BUT it is worth it. Having found so many Anglican churches (even the cathedrals) barred against visitors all over Ireland, made the long walk out here expecting the worst. But no, open and welcoming. And indeed charming.
This is an architectural must see! Loved wandering throughout, even if I did get quite startled by a bird flying from one of the darkened rooms! Take an umbrella, just in case. There is no fee.
