The Augustinian Priory at Bridgetown dates to the 13th century, when it was founded by the Roche family. The remains are extensive, covering a lovely green Irish hillside and running alongside the river that long supported the community here. The remains show the lively and expansive community that once thrived here, with a number of domestic buildings, including cloister and refectory, still standing. The images below give a number of good views of the exterior of the Priory.
