Clonmacnoise : This sixth century monastic site, located on the banks of the River Shannon is home to three high crosses, a cathedral, seven churches and two round towers. This great monastery was founded in 548- 9 by St. Ciarán Mac a tSaor (“son of the carpenter”), who studied under St. Finian at the famous Clonard Abbey. The strategic location of the monastery at a crossroads between the major east-west land route through the bogs of central Ireland and the River Shannon helped it become a major centre of religion, learning, craftsmanship and trade by the 9th century.
Belvedere House & Gardens : Built in 1741 as a hunting and fishing lodge you can enjoy the house and woodland trails. Stroll through the Walled garden, Fairy garden and Glasshouse full of exotic plants.
