Inch Abbey

Part of the Saint Patrick's Trail
Located on the north bank of the Quoile River, Inch Abbey was founded by John de Courcy in atonement for his destruction of Erenagah Abbey. The buildings are mainly from the 12th and 13th centuries while it is believed the church is older than that at Grey Abbey which was built about 1193.

The site is gently undulating and some wheelchair users may find access difficult away from the path which leads from the car park to the ruins.

No unaccompanied children under the age of 16.
