The medieval settlement as seen from the Wellingtonbridge graveyard. The photo is taken with a lot of zoom.


This is one of the finest examples of medieval settlement in Ireland. The first buildings date back from the 13th century, and the town was enlarged in 1385.
The town was destroyed in 1400 but it struggled to rise again and survived until 17th century.
Today only a few ruined buildings survive. Namely there are two churches, a tower house and a minor building.
The setting is amazing, and one can have the feeling of being in totally different place and time.
Sadly, the settlement stands on a private property and the owners don't allow visitors to take photos and videos of the ruines, and the use of any electronic equipment such as metal detectors or GPS navigators inside the property is forbidden.
The only authorized photos are those taken from the old graveyard of Wellingtonbridge, 1 mile across the bay.
