Moore Abbey stands on the site of an old Cistercian Monastery, which was originally the monastic settlement site of St. Evin. It is a large mansion built in Gothic style. Lord Drogheda lived there.

The famous singer John Count McCormack lived there from 1925 to 1939. 

The Sisters of Charity of Jesus and Mary bought Moore Abbey in 1945. There was a fire in the west wing in 1947 and it was very badly damaged. A lot of people from Monasterevin work in Moore Abbey. It is a home for the mentally disabled. There is a daytime workshop for clients from Co. Kildare and Co. Laois.
