This was a surprising hit with the teenage members of our multi-family travel group. The ruins of the abbey provide ample climbing and hiding opportunities. It's a beautiful spot and a charming walk from town.

We enjoyed the ramble around Hore Abbey after our tour of Cashel. It is an interesting ruin. Easy to get to. Large field that children would love to run through and of course climb in the ruin.

Beautiful ruin that was comparably empty to the Rock of Cashel. If you're in the area climb over the wall and take a look. It's absolutely gorgeous to walk along the old cloisters with farm animals.

Not a lot of parking around but it wasn't busy when we were here. Kids loved running through the field although the cows made them a bit nervous. Beautiful spot to walk around.

Very nice ruins. An easy walk from the Rock of Cashel. Tip: cut across the sheep's field, there's a break in the stonewall at the bottom of the hill.

We visited the ruins after missing out on the opening hours of the Rock of Cashal, which was ok because these were so fascinating and there seemed to be lots of construction/restoration happening up at the Rock. From the road it is a short walk...More
