Clonmacnois is the first mooring you reach if
travelling south from Athlone. I know it shouldn't be in my Bars listing but
it was on our route and is definitely worth a visit. The moorings are very exposed which makes it
difficult to moor in high winds especially if you had a high sided boat like ours. It is also out of place in these pages as it does not have any pubs.
The panoramic picture above show the religious site some parts of which date from the 8th
Century. Click on any of the building to see a close up of that part of the site. The picture on the right shows the remains of the Norman keep which is to the south of the site.
Comments and additional material on the bars in this area are always welcome.
