At the start of a new year, we often like to read about inspiring places. One of the most inspirational and peaceful historical sites that I have visited is Clonmacnoise, an early Christian site in Ireland dating back to the 6th century. I first visited the site as a college student on a study abroad program and I remembered its beautiful crosses and mystical feeling. While planning our family trip to Ireland in 2019, I wanted to revisit Clonmacnoise but wasn’t sure if it would be kid-friendly. I was happily surprised that my children enjoyed our visit to the site and were fascinated by its storied history. Read my new review today and learn why this site is a must-see during any trip to Ireland.
