  • I am not into archaeology but when I visit this ancient site founded in the 5th century I am struck by the amount of time a church has been on the site, It is really over powering. It is surprisingly ...  more »

  • Such a tranquil spot set high on a drumlin transporting you back to the time of the earliest monks in Ireland. Amazing that the monks had already discovered tidal power!

  • One of the most important medieval places in ancient Ireland : Nendrum Monastic Site. Location Mahee Island , Northern Ireland. Not many people know about this place, it is small .... but worth to be seen for sure. I will recommend to vist Nendrum in warmer summer time to see full beauty of this place. There is small visitor centre on site with interesting exhibition of ancient artifacts (old tide mill stones etc.) . In addition there is mall cinema room, which can take you "back in time" :) I really enjoyed , my kids too. Nice "slice" of Irish history in this place. I estimated that you need about 1,5 hour to fully enjoy the site ,and visitor centre. In close distance few more interesting places to see like :Mahee castle for example , so you can easily can make one day trip if you only wish.
  • So peaceful and tranquil. The views across the lough are just amazing. No matter how hard a day or week you've had this place always seems to drain away the weight you've been carrying and leave you feeling rested.
  • Beautiful views over Strangford. The drive to Mahee Island is fantastic.
  • Nice place to visit, but very small and not much of a walk, especially with dogs, but worthwhile checking out at least once. Will take up about 30 to 45 minutes of your time if u take it slowly, with some great views of the lough
  • Beautiful area, visitors centre very informative
