“Fascinating glimpse into the past!”

Old Franciscan Friary
Reviewed 25 March 2013 via mobile

This Franciscan Friary is located right next to the 2nd fairway of the Adare Manor Golf Course. The roof is gone, but many of the walls are intact. This area is so peaceful and it is easy to imagine yourself transported back to the past! Highly recommended!

It is a little gem lost in the middle of Adare. It deserves a little more attention from conservationists because it is still possible to bring it to life and avoid it being just one more ruin.

We had the ruins all to ourselves and had a fabulous time exploring and taking photos.

This is not the best preserved example of a Friary in the Republic, but if you're staying in Adare or driving through the area it is definitely worth a stop. It's location is more than beautiful, set on the side of the river, and..... on a golf course. You will have to get permission to view it. We had no problem as we were staying at Adare Manor.

The cloister is well preserved. Much of the rest of the site is in varying states of ruin. On a nice day it is a great spot for photographs and a personal trip to the past. Nice spot.
