In the heart of Adare is this beautiful historic Abbey. The exterior is stunning and looks just like a castle surrounded by nicely manicured grounds. The interior is charming on a grand scale with lovely stained glass windows, rich wooden pews and stone and brick walls. Just walk in and take a look it is open to the public and... More

I love going into old churches. This one did not disappoint. Lots of history on the walls and lovely stained glass panels. Worth a 15 - 30 minute visit.

Full of history & atmosphere. Lots of dark wood and stone. Still in operation as a church. Well worth a visit if stopping off in Adare.

Well done display of a current parish church that was once an abbey, and has undergone many renovations and restorations. Most interesting.

Fine church, with some medieval remnants. It would have been helpful to have some information displays around it, because there was very little available and I didn't see any leaflets/booklets (I may just have missed these). The ceilings in the main altar and the rear altar were particularly lovely.

This church is worth a visit if you are walking the town of Adare. You can park behind the Heritage Center. Parking on the street may be difficult to find. We spent about 15 minutes admiring its beauty.

Actually this church is the most interresting place to visit in Adare. There are nice coloured glass windows, a fascinating wooden roof construction and beeing an engineer I also found the central heating system engaging, while the rest of Adare consists of pubs and ancient thatched shop buildings.

Thank RSpicker
