A quick walk down the hill from the Rock of Cashel is the Hore Abby. Yes, we chuckled at the name as well. Initially founded in 1272, there isn’t much left, and with people crawling all over the remaining walls, who knows how much longer it will be around.




Surrounding the grounds of the Hore Ally are ancient graves, warn and overgrown with thick green grass from the spring rains.
