Clonmines Ruins are a group of medieval ruins on the estuary of the Owenduff River in south County Wexford, Ireland.
The ruins may be an ideal filming location for scenes that need multiple ruined buildings in one group. The ruins include a former abbey, two towers, and part of a stone house. The location is located on farmland and overlooks the estuary of the River Owenduff. The flat farmland gives the area a sweeping feel, and the location also gets good views across the estuary. The river bank is particularly silted and reedy due to the winding course of the river at this spot.
The ruins were built between the 1300s and the 1700s. The ruins were once part of a booming town, but he town relied on a port, which was rendered useless by the changing course of the river, and the town collapsed and was abandoned in the 1700s.
Please note that the location is on private farmland and can only be accessed by permission from the owners. A later ruined church and graveyard are also located nearby on the property.
