At Addair a small village 6 miles farther on the road to Killarney are the remains of 3 abbeys & of an old castle once inhabited by the Earls of Desmond. The [situation] of these near the River Maig & the trees around them give them a picturesque appearance but they have nothing venerable or grand in themselves - neither indeed is any abbey in Ireland to be mention’d with most of those in England which are so justly the object of curiosity. Col. Quins improvements at this place are beautifully […] with plantations and have the river Maig […] there. [Unpaginated]
