Clare Island Abbey
Clare Island Abbey
A cell of Cistercian monks built the abbey in the mid 13th century, although it was rebuilt around 1460. It is where Granuaile (Grace O'Malley) is reputed to be buried. There is a tomb inside but no one knows for sure if it is hers. There are also some of the best medieval wall paintings in Ireland in the abbey (no inside photos allowed).
