Neighborhood: Outside the city

Just a short walk from the island's main road is one of the most famous historical sites on Inishmore. The Seven Churches date back to the 8th century. Only two of these churches remain intact; the rest lie in ruins. The oldest church was dedicated to Saint Brecan, who is buried nearby. An ancient ornate cross stands on the rocks above his grave. This is a beautiful place to visit for those interested in local history or who are just looking for a quiet place to meditate.
