Location: On the east bank of the Shannon River. From just east of Ballinasloe in County Galway (N6), about a kilometer, take R357 SE to Shannonbridge (approx. 10 km). In Shannonbridge, take R444 (on your left) NE approx. 5 km. The road bends at a 90 degree angle here and the entrance to Clonmacnois is on the left just before the bend. From Athlone, take N62 south and then right onto R444. Because it's such a well-known site, there is a reasonably large carpark. It gets very busy in the summer months, but it is open year round usually 10 am to 5:30 pm. Heritage Cards are accepted here.
