Jerpoint Abbey

Jerpoint Abbey – one mile from Thomastown lies the Cistercian abbey of Jerpoint, one of the most impressive monastic ruins in Ireland.

Founded in 1160, the abbey flourished until it was suppressed during the 16th century.

A fine central tower was added in the 15th century, while the restored cloister pillars are decorated with fine sculpted figures of knights and ladies, bishops, dragons and an unhappy-looking monk, clutching his stomach.
