St. Benan’s Church was probably the oratory of a hermit because of its small size. Measuring at roughly 15 by 11 feet, some proclaim that it is the smallest church in Ireland. 

It dates from the 11th Century, and is dedicated to Saint Benignus, a disciple and successor of St. Patrick. It is oriented on a North-South axis, instead of the more common East-West axis of most religious structures due to the location being a very exposed and windy site.
