Cong Abbey

Hiking Highlight

Recommended by 10 out of 10 hikers


  • Maren Ingrid

    Cong Abbey is a beautiful ancient monastery ruins of a former 13th century monastery. Here you feel transported back several centuries and can imagine how the monks lived here in the Middle Ages. Benjamin Guinness was probably the last to devote himself to the restoration of the site in the mid-19th century - since then nature (and tourists) has been conquering it.Admission is free. Parking is available directly at the,%20Mayo.html

    Nice old walls. Parking is right next to it.
