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.

Although termed ‘ the seven churches’ there are in fact only 2 churches with few domestic buildings. The title seven is possibly an allusion to the pilgrimage circuit of Rome which incorporated seven churches. St Brecan’s Church is a large multi period church c. 8th-13th...More

Visited on a foggy damp day, it's stark remains brings to mind what once was. Untouched for what seems decades makes you think what life was on this island years ago. great place for photos!!!!!!!! Just be prepared for unsteady ground.

Our tour guide, Noel, brought us to this site which I'd likely have missed on my own. Interesting bit of history and good photo op.

We were extremely lucky to have Dara Molloy as our tour director. He gave a very informative talk and added to our visit.
