Inch Abbey: Inch was the site of a pre-Norman monastery,  in existence by 800 AD. Inch was raided by Vikings in 1001 and again in 1149 by the Irish.

The visible ruins are the extensive remains of the Cistercian Abbey founded by John de Courcy in 1180, after he had burned its predecessor. De Courcy was a strong supporter of the church. His wife Affreca, daughter of Godred, King of Man founded Grey Abbey in 1193, also Cistercian, and is buried there. Inch was established by monks from Furness in Lancashire, its 'mother house', and was almost certainly partly built by masons brought in by de Courcy from England.

Little is known of the abbey's later history except that it remained a centre of strong English influence. Monastic life ended with the dissolution of the monasteries when, in 1541, it was granted, with its lands, to Gerald, Earl of Kildare. By the late 19th century the buildings were badly ruined and overgrown, but excavation and repairs were carried out in 1914 when many of the architectural details were restored.
