Leaba Chinnderig – Saint Kenderrig's grave

This site is located directly behind the priest’s house which is in the center of the island. The grave itself is dated from the 7th century although the exact date is not known. This is said to be the resting place of a Leinster Princess. Locals on Inis Meain gather for  an annual mini-pilgrimage on the 15th of August and venture to the grave and Saint Kenderig’s Well in the field nextdoor.

Inis Mor Island is conveniently located in the center of The Wild Atlantic Way. It is accessible from both Doolin (The Cliffs of Moher) and Rossaveal (Galway / Connemara).
