Having passed it numerous times on the by-pass, we decided to park up and go and see it. I'm glad we did. A 10minute walk that is paved some of the way leads you to the Abbey. You have to go over a "kissing wall"...More

It is definitely worth the trouble to visit this historic Abbey. Even though it is right beside the railway line, the access route is a circuitous track off the big roundabout at Limerick road, Ennis. Don't be deterred!
