Teampall Bhean’in (St Benan’s Church)

Aran Islands → Inis Mor (Inishmore) Island → Inis Mor Island Churches & Celtic Sites → Teampall Bhean’in (St Benan’s Church)

This is reputedly the smallest church in Ireland. It stands atop a hill overlooking Cill Éinne Bay and is a landmark on the island for fishermen at sea. In contrast with churches elsewhere in Ireland it has a north south orientation. It dates from about the 7th century. The views from it are outstanding. Nearby are the remains of a cashel wall and a clochán( stone cell).
