WATCH: New virtual tour of Quin Abbey

ESB Apprentice Moneypoint

A VIRTUAL tour of Quin Friary is now available on the website of the Quin Heritage Group. 

Members of group were aware that the story of the 12th century Friary was not readily available to either locals or visitors.

To this end, with the support of Clare County Council and Creative Ireland, members of Quin Heritage have devised a 12-minute video that shares share the story of Quin Friary over the centuries.

The video also highlights many of the main architectural features found within the building.

The piece includes floor plans and stunning drone footage, as well as a video walkthrough focusing on features of interest. 

The tour is available on Quinheritage.ie. Those using a smartphone will be able to view the video, while moving around the Friary.
