According to tradition when Muckross Abbey was first founded it was known as "Carraig-an-chiuil" the Rock of Music, Mor (Donnell) MacCarthy, son of Tadhg, is reputed to have had a dream in which he built a Fransiscian monastery at a place called Carraig-an-chiuil.

He dispatched some of his servants to look for such a place, one of them returned saying that he had heard music coming from a rock at Irrelagh in Killarney. MacCarthy immediately began building the moneatary.
