The parish church of Kilculliheen is within a large subrectangular graveyard. It is the possible site of an Arroasian convent founded as a priory of St Mary de Hogges (Dublin) by Dermot Mac Murrough in 1151. It had become an abbey by 1257 and was suppressed in 1540 at which time the church was parochial. Other buildings at that time included a belfry, hall, dormitory, four chambers, kitchens and a granary. No trace of these buildings or the church survive. The present C of I church was built in 1820.
