People have lived in the area around Ardcroney since at least the Neolithic era, judging by the wealth of archaeological remains. These include two unusual Linkardstown-style burials, a portal tomb, an early medieval ringfort and a motte and bailey. The church is a single-cell structure built from rough limestone blocks, which was probably extended in the 16th century by adding a nave, chancel and chancel arch, which can still be seen. Linked to the church by a defensive bawn wall is Ardcroney castle, a four-storey towerhouse built in the 14th century.
