Fodor's Review

Beside the Burren Centre in Kilfenora, the ruins of a small 12th-century church, once the Cathedral of St. Fachtna, have been partially restored as a parish church. Over the transept a glass ceiling protects High Crosses and effigies from the harsh elements. There are some interesting carvings in the roofless choir, including an unusual, life-size human skeleton. In a field about 165 feet west of the ruins is an elaborately sculpted High Cross that is worth examining, though parts of it are badly weathered.
