Map Reference: T133965 (3133, 1965)

This priory is situated about 1km downstream from the Visitor's Centre at Glendalough. It is a nave-and-chancel church with some attached buildings. The priory is also known as Glenlorcan or Regles. It became Arroasian shortly after 1163.

The east window of the church and the chancel arch have fine Romanesque decoration including animal and human masks and geometric patterns. The nave of the church was reconstructed in the later medieval period when a new building was added to the north. There was a great deal of reconstruction of the church in 1875.
