Hore Abbey, Cashel, Ireland

Looking for something more subdued? Head to southeast Ireland. The towering Rock of Cashel dominates the skyline and tourists' attention, but nearby Hore Abbey is equally beguiling. The crumbling 13th-century ruin sits idle on farm land, entertaining dairy cows and the occasional wanderer. If you're looking for a peaceful pasture to absorb the world's end, this is it.
