Medieval ruins surround this impressive abbey in Roscrea, Ireland, which is 45 miles outside of Limerick. Solitude, peace, and quiet are enjoyed in this location, which is in walking distance from woodland areas, waterfalls and large fields, providing visitors with a chance to reconnect with nature. The abbey functions as a dairy farm and as a boarding school for boys, and has a separate guesthouse that accommodates up to 40 people. This place has received guests for over 135 years with the characteristic hospitality of monks who are committed to make their guests welcome.
