Clonmacnoise

The ruins of Clonmacnoise Monastery sits on the River Shannon in County Offaly, Ireland. It was founded in 544 by St. Ciaran, and for centuries it was the most famous and important monastery in Ireland. The grounds include ruins of a cathedral, other churches, stone towers, and several high crosses. We visited there in September 2014.
