There's no place like home...or the West of Ireland! But don't just take my word for it- stop by occasionally and decide for yourself!

In 1161 the Cistercians founded this Abbey at Boyle, Co. Roscommon, taking about sixty years to complete the church building. The carving and ornamentation which has survived is quite beautiful, mostly foliage inspired.
Even in its ruinous state it is a vastly impressive structure so in its heyday it must have been truly awe-inspiring.
