Charming Timoleague is a village perched at the edge of a long sea inlet and is dominated by the ruins of a 13th Century Fransiscan Abbey. It is home to fine restaurants and quaint pubs.


Timolegaue will tantalise you with its brightly coloured buildings and buzzing local pubs and restaurants. It is known for its honey production which was reputedly brought to the village by St Molaga, who founded a monastic settlement here in the 6th century. The ruins of a 13th Century Franciscan Abbey dominate the village. The story goes that Spanish ships brought wine to the monks here - but the abbey was destroyed by the English in 1604 and a few years later the monks left for good and the abbey "rooms" have served as a local graveyard ever since.

Timoleague has two interesting churches worth exploring. The Church of the Ascension has an antique mosaic interior while the Roman Catholic Church contains one of the last triple stained glass windows from the studio of the famous Irish artist Harry Clarke.

The village is a haven for anglers and the River Argideen is regarded as one of the best sea trout rivers in Ireland and is famous for tis night fly-fishing.

Timoleague comes alive during the annual Harvest and Music Amongst The Mosiacs (classical music festival) Festivals every summer.
