It lies just north of the border with County Clare on the old Galway–Limerick road, now the R458.

What a wonderful discovery! Stumbled upon this on our way to the Burren...so glad we did. First of all, contrary to the review from the person who couldn't figure out how to get into the site (and blamed the Irish people), there is a very large car park, stone stile crossings and a metal gate. Not sure how much more obvious it could be.
As far as area, Kilmacduagh is actually larger than Glendalough....and there aren't hordes of coach tourists to muck everything up. In fact, we were the only two people there. Later in our trip we did visit Glendalough and agreed that, if your travels take you near Kilmacduagh, it would be the better choice.
The only negative thing I can say about Kilmacduagh is you can't actually walk inside the ruins. Still, you can walk around the entire site, which took us about 35 minutes or so. There's a sign explaining the history of the site, as well as a map as to what everything is...and there's no admission fee.
Overall, Kilmacduagh is a lovey, very scenic stop that pretty much covers the bases as far as Monastic ruins are concerned. It's quiet (other than the endless mooing), serene, and completely devoid of crowds. So, if during your trip you plan on visiting the Burren and Glendalough, I suggest using your time to do something other than Glendalough and stop at Kilmacduagh instead.

Wonderful visit and a grand welcome from an imaginative American women who has a passion for Yeats and Ireland.
An informative video sets the scene and then the climb up the stairways exploring the towers rooms before getting to the rooftop and taking in the amazing views.
On our return downstairs tea and tea cake was offered, this is part of the entrance fee and much conversation with the friendly volunteer.
Excellent visit, wonderful location.

Been coming here for many years galway races week. Always made welcome. Course is always in great condition and the Apre golf is always good. One point that lets it down is the lack of buggies and the standard of the buggies available. Still love the place.
