Ennis FriaryJune 28, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ☁️ 64 °F
We started off our day by backtracking to Ennis, about 40 minutes from Doolin, to check out the photogenic ruins of the Ennis Friary.
Founded by the Franciscans in the 13th century, the friary was built on an island where the River Fergus divided. Today, the island is incorporated into the streets of Ennis. Of the original structure, only the choir at the east end of the church survives.
The €4pp admission, which was covered by the Heritage Card, gave us access not only to the ruins but to the exhibit hall set up in what was once the nave of the church.Read more
