Fascinating well preserved paintings my children had an opportunity to experience and appreciate what medieval paintings look like . highly recommended when you visit to Clare Island only around 25 to 30 mins walk.👍

Really worth a visit to see the old mosaic walls , hard to believe that they have survived for so long , well done to OPW for having the Abbey in such a state. If you visit Clare Island this is a “must “. to visit.

This little abbey is roughly two miles hike from the harbour. It's a very easy walk with breaktaking panoramic views.

You need to get the key from the shop, which is the building just in front of the abbey as you walk up towards it.

The abbey itself (although its little more than a smallish room) has that atmosphere that very old buildings do, the sort that makes you pause for a moment and reflect on the history and timelessness of it. The main features arw the O'Malley tomb and the restored medieval paintings at the back of the abbey. There are signs that respectfully ask you not to take photos of the paintings. If you want to have photos of them to remember your visit, there are plenty on Google that you can save to your phone instead.

Obviously very old buildings like this tend to be small and of not always of great interest to a child. Before we headed to the abbey, my daughter and I read up on the history of Gráinne O'Malley and the building was much more interesting to her (both of us actually!) once she could attach some context to it and knew that it was the place of the christening, marriages and (supposedly) burial of the pirate queen. It's worth delving into the history before you go as it makes the whole thing that bit more interesting.

It's an interesting piece of history on this beautiful island, definitely a must visit whilst you're on Clare Island.

One of the best historic sites on the island. A must see. Easy 2 mile hike on the main road from the harbor.

Get the key from the shop, it's well worth a visit, if only for the painted ceiling, painstakingly restore by a team of experts in the late 90s.

An interesting building, but not well developed.The murals on the ceiling were hard to make out but were fascinating. The whole building had the historical aura that it .deserves.

In addition there is a store around the corner to enjoy a coffee and ponder the history you've just seen before continuing on your hike.

Worth the hike while visiting Clare Island.

The Abbey houses the O’Malley Tomb, supposedly the burial site of Gráinne O’Malley the 16th century pirate queen of Ireland! It also has really well preserved medieval wall paintings.
