Quin, Co. Clare

Quin is an historic village about 15 km (9.5 miles) from Ennis in County Clare, and is home to a heritage site, Craggaunowen (+353 (0)61 630 788; open daily in summer); telling how the Celts arrived and lived in Ireland, it includes replicas of dwellings and forts, and the ancient castle is also an attraction. A major feature is the Brendan Boat built by Tim Severin who sailed from Ireland to Greenland, re-enacting the voyage of St. Brendan, reputed to have discovered America centuries before Columbus.  Quin Abbey is a well-preserved ruin of a Franciscan friary founded in 1402 by Sioda MacNamara.
