Clomnacnoise is situated on an esker ridge overlooking a large area of bog through which the river Shannon flows.
One of Ireland's most famous monastic sites, it was founded by Saint Ciaran in the 6th century.
The site includes the ruins of a Cathedral, eight churches dating from the 10th and 13th century, two round towers, three high crosses and a large collection of early Christian grave slabs.
The original high crosses and grave slabs are on display in the Visitor Centre. Buried here is the last High King of Ireland - Rory O'Çonnor.
