Calling all history lovers! Are you looking for something interesting to do on your next day off? If so, make sure to take a trip to Timahoe Heritage Centre on your next day off! This fantastic heritage site is held dear by the locals and throughout the entire country. This was a once-thriving monastery, which was a hugely important centre for the Christian church in Ireland at the time.
Where can I find Monasteries in Ireland?
The centrepiece of the monastery is the round tower, which was synonymous with monasteries in Ireland at the time. This round tower is where regular bells would ring from, either for worship or for the regular Viking raids that would come to the monastery. The visitor centre at the site is a historical building alone, being a church built in the 1850s. So, what are you waiting for? Make the most of your next day off, and visit the fantastic Timahoe Round Tower and Heritage Centre!
