St. James's Cell, St. Mullin's, Co. Carlow.

Location – At the rear of the main site.

Description and History – This is the smallest structure at the site and puts me in mind of Temple Ciaran at Clonmacnoise. It’s too small to be a church and was likely a small cell dwelling, hence the name. It measures 2.1m x 2.5m and is made from coursed granite rubble as are all the structures at the site. There is a small window in the E gable end. This is a charming little ruin.

Difficulty – Easy.
