Old Abbey

Cong, County Mayo, Ireland
10 Kudos
Flag
This ruined Abbey like many others must have been beautiful in its day. It straddles the road and the back drop is a river with a bridge crossing. It is set in the Village of Cong which has a lot of local charm. The site has a long history dating to the 7th century when a church was first built followed by a history of destruction and rebuilding.

It won't take a lot of time to see the Abbey but there are other things the village can offer. If you are interested in books, step into Rare & Recent Books with its selection of Irish History books as well as some rare finds you likely not see elsewhere. I made off with a few for my personal library.
