Quin Abbey: Quin, Co Clare

Quin Abbey is impressive, yet still charming and intimate. It is only about 9 miles from Ennis, and definitely worth a side trip to visit.

I greatly enjoyed exploring this ruin and the surrounding grounds. It was filled with soaring arches and dancing shadows from the late afternoon sun.

Nearby St. Mary’s Church is also lovely.

Editor’s Note: Quin Abbey is also home to one of the most complete cloisters in Ireland. So a peek inside at the arched walkway is quite interesting. – CT
