I loved this friary and the small cemetery attached to The friary. It is one of the things I wanted to see in Ireland and it didn’t disappoint. It is a must see.

It was a pleasure to quietly walk through the Friary with little to no other people around. The Friary has been modernized with glass exhibits among the stone walls. The McMahon tombs were very interesting to see.

We were there looking for possible family history and the staff were able to provide a wealth of information. Very friendly and walked us through giving us more history. We have some great photos.
