This is the homepage of the Parish of Kildysart – part of the Diocese of Killaloe. We are located in South Clare on the shore of the Shannon estuary. Our parish is centred on St Michael’s Church and is a vibrant community.  Somebody once described a parish as a “family of families” and that description certainly sits well with us here in Kildysart.  People are supportive of each other and the good of the community is central to daily parish life.

Our site is intended to be a source of information about our parish for locals and visitors alike. We hope that you may find these pages informative and supportive. We welcome your suggestions.
