St. Mullin’s Monastic Site

St. Mullin's

St. Mullin’s Monastic Site in County Carlow was founded in the early 8th century by St. Moling (614-697 AD) with the help of Gobán Saor Ireland’s celebrated builder. It ranks in importance with Glendalough and Clonmacnoise.

St. Mullin's Cross

Set on a hill overlooking a river the extensive ruins includes a cemetery, monastery, abbey, five churches and remains of a round tower. The cemetery contains the grave of St. Moling as well as the graves of many of the Kings of Leinster and rebels of the 1798 Rebellion. Outside the walls are a high cross and a Norman motte. Open daily. Free admission.
