Killaloe is a charming town, sited on high ground to the west of the narrow bridge crossing the Shannon. The town boasts plenty of shops, restaurants and lively pubs.
It is the original site of the royal palace of Kincora (Ceann Coraidh, the weir head), with which Brian Boru, High King of Ireland from 1002 to 1014, is associated.
Beal Boru, what remains of Brian Boru's ring fort, is located at the point where Lough Derg narrows before the town.

St Flannan's Cathedral is a simple sandstone building on the west bank of the river. The Thorgrim stone, before the doorway, is unique for its ogham and runic inscriptions. In the grounds is a Romanesque church, St. Flannan's oratory, dating from the 12th century.
St. Molua's Oratory, the small oratory of St. Lua or Molua from whom Killaloe got its name, is an example of early Irish church building.
Grianan ring fort, the site of the hereditary home of the local rulers the Dal gCais, is situated on the south-eastern side of a steep hill known as Crag or Cragliath, (Grey Rock) a short distance away.
