Visitors interested in the ecclesiastical heritage of Ireland won’t want to miss the wonderfully restored ruins at Drum, in County Roscommon. The site features a Romanesque abbey, Medieval church and St Brigid's Holy Well.

The ancient monastic site of Drum, County Roscommon, is under the care of the local heritage group, which has recently restored the remains of the Romanesque abbey. The wonderful monastery is thought to have belonged to a community of Patrician monks.

The fascinating site boasts a Medieval church, living quarters and 350 memorials. It is also home to St Brigid’s Holy Well, which was restored in 1990. In 2010, a life size statue of the saint was added.
