Ballinskelligs Priory: Ballinskelligs Augustinian Priory was founded for monks who came to the mainland from Skellig Michael in the 12th or 13th century, and was dedicated to St Michael. It consists of a range of buildings running NE - SW. At the north-east is a two-storey building and closer to the sea is a rectangular church.

There is an open area to the west and another rectangular building. Beyond this is another building. There are a number of two-storey tombs, all of which have been opened revealing coffin fragments and bones. At the east end of the church is a large archway and there are doorways in the north and south walls.

The building just to the west has a small two-light window with ogee heads at the east end and a larger round- headed opening.
