Fodor's Review

Cong is surrounded by many stone circles and burial mounds, but its most notable ruins are those of the Augustine Abbey, overlooking a river. Dating from the early 12th century when it was founded by Turlough O'Connor, the High King of Ireland, this Abbey still retains some finely carved details and a cloister. Don't miss the fishing hut, an ingenious invention to keep fishermen dry.
