  • Worth a visit when in the area. $5 entry, surprisingly valid for 3 days if you wanted to head back. Great piece of history, very informative and great looking around. Would have liked to head back at night to the Altar bar
  • Our Big Day was all smiles. We could not of been happier, our guests had the best time within this picture perfect setting at the Convent Gallery. Forever grateful to Tina and her team.
  • very flash, fascinating building and beautiful gardens kept well. not especially cheap and a kinda arty shop if you like that sort of thing. walking around upstairs (small entrance fee) is nice but watch out for your kids - plenty of stuff that they could easily wreck.
  • Enjoyed the ambience and arts in the museum. Definitely worth a visit
  • Well preserved buildings, excellent art, good gift shop, very interesting renovations. The altar bar is a must see as is the bell tower and the nun's dining room. Owner is very friendly and informative
