Small but inspirational

Hard enough to find, this is well worth the visit. Part of Ireland's hidden treasure trove lost out in the back of beyond.

Drove small road to find this. Was not impressed. Looks like every graveyard I saw already. The churches around here are filled with the same Celtic crosses. If you have a choice to see this or a Castle pick the Castle. To far off the path wasted too much time.

We stopped here today. It is a little hard to find but well worth the effort. The grave yard is small and there are only two large Celtic Cross gravestones tucked among other very old gravestones that seemed to go back to the late 1700's/early 1800's. Once you find it, this is a 15 minute stop, max, but very interesting... More

The high crosses are amazing in many ways: their age, the workmanship and dedication to their formation, the symbolism decorating each one, and how they have stood the test of time and weathering.

I visited the Ahenny high crosses after visiting Cahir Castle. The directions were clear and it was easy to find. The graveyard is down a slope (no cows) and is fenced. The sun was shining, there was a slight breeze and the setting was beautiful. It is a small graveyard. The crosses are simple, but beautifully carved. There was such... More

Definitely worth visiting. As the other review noted, the countryside around it is lovely. The drive from Callan to Windgap and on to Ahenny is really nice. The village itself is really unusual, it must have been built for workers in a local mine. Its worth walking around the village, the houses are pretty and a lot of them seem... More
