Clare Abbey is a Medieval Abbey and graveyard on the outskirts of Ennis, County Clare. Very easy access and worth a visit when visiting the area. No facilities, but close to town.

Clare abbey is on private land next to the train track and motorway exit 12 link road to Ennis. There is a road off the limerick road roundabout that brings you close to it but after that it's over a farmers gate and trudge through...More
