Glenstal Abbey: Murroe, County Limerick, Ireland
Glenstal Abbey is a Benedictine monastery founded in 1927 in County Limerick on the south-west coast of Ireland. A 500 acre estate with streams, lakes and woodland paths surrounds a Norman-style castle built in the 1830s.
The Abbey, which is dedicated to Saints Joseph and Columba, is home to 50 monks. Prayer and liturgical celebration combine with managing a boarding school for boys, a farm, and a guest house. The Abbey is known for its collection of Russian and Greek icons and for its many chant and music recordings.
