  • Fantastic spot for those visiting for a day or going on a retreat. A place of great religious significance and runs rich with history. Many monks live there and can be met whilst walking around or attending mass, confession, office, etc. The premises is extensively large and makes for a great walk when the weather is in you're favour. A quiet and peaceful place.
  • Quiet holy retreat place.stay the night fora freewill offering:)
  • Love going here
  • Great piece of Irish heritage
  • Is a wonderful Abbey immersed in silence and greenery. There are monks who pray and are home to the pilgrims with great reception. It is an ideal place to rest and to gather in prayer.
