    The ruins of the 15th-century Franciscan Muckross Abbey (also known as Muckross Friary, Irish Mainistir Locha Léin) are nestled in the Killarney National Park near Lough Leane and Muckross House. It can be reached from the car park within a few minutes and is freely accessible during the opening hours of the park.killarneynationalpark.ie/visit/muckross-abbey

    The old monastery at Muckross Park is relatively close to Muckross House, so it's worth visiting. An awesome masonry that fits wonderfully with Ireland!

    Muckross Abbey is a major church facility in Killarney National Park in southwest Ireland.
    I found the place very mystical and impressive.

    Muckross Abbey (also Muckross Friary, Irish Mainistir Locha Léin) is a major ecclesiastical facility in Killarney National Park in southwest Ireland. The abbey is located about 5 km from Killarney and 2 km from Muckross House on Lough Leane, in a park-like setting in the middle of a cemetery.
