I love old churches and tend to visit a lot of them when I’m on vacation wherever I am. This one doesn’t disappoint. Worth a stop.

In the beautiful Quin village The Ruins of Quin Abbey are an interesting way to spend a quiet hour. There is a peaceful feeling as you walk among the ruins and wonder at the construction.

This site is free to the public and worth the visit. We walked through the ruins of the abbey and we felt like we were back in time. It is also a cemetery and still used for the local families.
