If you don't mind walking through a cow pasture and dodging the cow deposits to get to the abbey this is a wonderful place. We were the only two there for a long period and took several pictures with ruins and cows. Best to stand clear of the back end of the cows.
While this is literally a jump away from the Rock of Cashel, which is a much more popular attraction, Hore Abbey was my favorite part of Cashel, possibly my favorite part of my time in Ireland. Perhaps as an American and not being used to seeing these sorts of ruins makes them that much more fascinating to me, but it... 更多
The abbey is quite large and beautifully placed, it is imposing and lovely and worth the stop. You can make your stop long or short because it is free. It is in the middle of a cow field, so wear appropriate foot wear and watch your step.
There's limited spaces available on the side of the road, and it's maybe a 2-3 minute walk through the field. the field was muddy and there's a stone path, but this was also very muddy in one place and covered in cow dung. so make sure you're wearing sensible shoes. The abbey is in ruins and is free to visit,... 更多
Worth a look around, we went on a miserable morning when no one else was there, it was littered with a few alcohol cans, but other than that it is an atmospheric place to go, especially with the rock in the background. We spent probably 30 minutes here, there wasn't much information on the grounds, just a sign at the... 更多
We've been in Ireland for 5 days and our visit to Hore Abbey was probably my favorite thing we've done so far. This was barely mentioned in our guidebook, but I think it's a can't miss in Cashel. Our visit was delayed about 5 minutes as we waited for the rancher leasing the land to corral his cows across the... 更多
Nice ruins but I think they could do more to make it more attractive. It's a very nice place for a picnic on a nice summers day. The cows in field around the abbey are very nice as well.
This has been one of my favorite visits so far. The abbey sits in the middle of a large field, and it's absolutely stunning. The fields are scattered with sheep and cows, and if you position yourself right you can capture a photo with the rock of cashel in the background.
Lovely old ruin that sits almost in the back yard of Peggy O'Neill's Bed and Breakfast in Cashel. We understand that the Queen landed by helicopter here on her last visit to Cashel.
These ruins date back to the 12 th century and really are worth a look.When seen from a distance they are amazing and you can walk into them and have a look amongst the graves and ruins of the building.They are amazing the only disappointment is because of the free access some people have disrespected the place and there is... 更多
We loved walking around the Abby Ruins. It was in an open field with nothing around it. It was in the evening just before sunset and there were about 4 couples / families walking around exploring the Abby. It was very romantic and you can look up and see the Rock of Cashel on the hill above it. There was... 更多
It's a wonder people don't seem to visit this abbey. It's very lovely and still in great shape. Be sure to look closely at the stones forming the arches in the roof (you can see shapes carved in the stones!). You can get some great pictures at sunset (lighting is just right). Bonus: it's free to visit and gives you... 更多
Saw the abbey ruins in the distance when on the Rock of Cashel but no signs showing you how to get to it. We just wandered around ourselves and after about a fifteen minute walk found them. Beautiful abbey ruins with a lovely calming feel. Lovely to be able to walk around freely and be able to imagine how it... 更多
Just down the hill from the Rock you'll see a set of ruins in the distance. A long walk or a short drive away (no parking there though), sits Hore Abbey in the middle of a field. Down the path you're in some incredible ruins that include a graveyard. If you want to wander a few minutes in an inspiring... 更多
