Quin is a village in southeast County Clare in Ireland. The village's main attraction, Quin Abbey, is open to the public, and although mostly ruined, much of the structure remains. The abbey was built on the foundations of an earlier Norman castle, and the foundations of its corner towers can still be seen. The name of the village is a reference in ancient Irish to the original five roads out of the village.
The River Rine runs through Quin.
