Overview

Welcome to the Abarta Audioguide to the Derrynaflan Trail. This guide, produced in conjunction with Slieveardagh Rural Development, Holycross Community Network and Littleton Development Association, will lead you around the beautiful landscape of the Slieve Ardagh region in County Tipperary, and through thousands of years of history by following in the footsteps of some of the first Christians in Ireland.

Our guide takes you to sites like Holycross Abbey, one of the finest and most visited monastic sites in Ireland, Kilcooley Abbey with its incredible medieval sculpture, Buolick where you can see the remains of Norman fortifications alongside a fine towerhouse and beautiful church, Crohane where you will hear about a bloody battle where the Vikings were defeated and, of course, Derrynaflan itself.

Derrynaflan, a peaceful and tranquil place, a church on a green island surrounded by bog, and the place where an incredible treasure was discovered.
