    What a situation, what history, what a great place to visit! Don't miss finding out about the fish traps in the bay by the car park and the way the monks used the tides...love it! Low key but lovely!  more »

  • This place is a hidden gem. You get to travel through some beautiful countryside to get there and when you do... Wow. This is one of my favourite places to visit. The place is steeped in history and the location is just so peaceful and beautiful. There is a little museum there, tucked away in the trees and bushes, which is also well worth a visit. Go and see one of the many beautiful places this country has to offer.
  • This is one of those little Lost Treasures you really should visit located in one of the most beautiful locations surrounding Strangford Lough. The grounds contain a little museum to explain the history of the site and it's historical importance to Ireland. This is not to be missed if you're following 'St Patrick's Trail'.
  • Lovely location tucked out of the way. None of my friends from around here have heard of it. Well worth a visit for the beautiful drive and for the site itself.
  • Bit out of the way but a pleasant place to have a walk around. Gorgeous views on the way round though.
  • This site is quite famous for being the place that the hymn "Be thou my vision" was first composed in the Irish language.
