Enjoy the stunning views of Quin Abbey as captured by Ritchie Maxted
Quin Friary (CL042-02702), more often addressed as ‘Quin Abbey’ consists of a striking and impressive cluster of buildings that form the focal point of the village. The Friary stands on the ruins of a Norman castle that was built by Thomas de Clare to assert his power in Munster in 1278. Its success as a fortification was short-lived because in 1318 the MacNamara’s razed the castle.
The Friary, built on the castles ruins, was likely founded in 1402 by Síoda Cam MacNamara, lord of Clancullen, who established it as his family burial place.
