Most if not all of the minibus tours stop here. I learned more reading recent reviews when I came to this page to write a review of my own than I had from my guide, and it's a particular shame he didn't explain about the...More

This is an interesting graveyard with the remains of a number of churches in it. You can see old Irish writing as well as English and modern Irish writing examples on the tombstones. It is a nice place to visit. I left with more questions...More

This ruined complex is worth the effort. We biked all the way there. Most cyclists turned back long before we reached the Seven Churches so by the time we got there we had the place almost to ourselves. We explored the ruins, soaking in the...More

I've seen a lot of these types of ruins in Ireland and this particular location does not stand out in any way. If you are tight on time you can go ahead and skip this stop. I wish I did so that I could spend...More

Very very old ruins with gravestones all over the place. Worth a quick stop to take pictures and see how old this monastic location is. Not too much historical information available unless you get some from a tour guide. Beautiful views 💚

Included in all mini-van tours of the island, the ruins provide an interesting, historical stop on your island tour. Helps to have a guide with good local knowledge: I suspect they all do. The ruins are thought-provoking and offer a range of good photo opportunities.

We did this as part of our tour. The history was great and the site was very interesting. It is worth a stop and take time to wander around.

Interesting stop but not nearly as cool as don angus. Enjoyed the local kids playing music for tips. If you have time it’s a cool stop but don’t plan your day around it.

This site is located on the west side of Inis Mor and is quite interesting. Although it is known as”Seven Churches” only two of the foundations are actually churches. The larger one, St Brecan’s Church, was built over the 8th to 13th centuries. It has...More
