Moone Abbey

Moone Abbey, near the border between Counties Kildare and Carlow, is of special interest to historic building aficionados because the estate comprises a rare concentration of building types and styles that illustrate more than a thousand years of Ireland’s turbulent history. Behind the mid-18th century Palladian house are the remains of Moone Abbey, a monastery originally founded in the 6th century by St. Columkille and rebuilt almost 700 years later. The abbey contains the splendid High Cross of Moone, rediscovered amidst the ruins during the nineteenth century, while the house’s mediaeval predecessor stands a little way off; a ‘Ten Pound’ tower house in remarkably fine condition.
