Baltinglass Abbey is one of the most important Cistercian abbeys of Leinster.
The Abbey was founded in 1148 by Dermot Mc Murrough, King of Leinster for the Cistercian of monks.
It is situated on the east bank of the River Slaney on the North side of Baltinglass town. The six beautiful Gothic arches on either side of the nave, supported by alternate round and square pillars, are a noteworthy feature of the ruins.
