Just returned from visiting Saint Patrick's burial site. Was surprised to find the Ruins of Inch Abbey within minutes of his burial site. Inch Abbey is a very picturesque setting in the countryside. Great for taking photos. Great views from several directions. There is no fee to enter which is quite uncommon these days. A must see if visiting Downpatrick,... More

Inch Abbey was amazing , stunning views, the remaining structure of the abbey was very interesting. So much information was there on the boards to allow you to learn more about the Abbey when it was built, the monks everyday lives and how life was. Beside the remains of the Abbey is an old graveyard, it was fascinating to walk... More

The other half & I had come off all adventurous on our Saturday off work & decided to explore the countryside of Co. Down. Some friends had been to Inch & told us how beautiful it was, so we decided to check it out. We arrived at around 6pm and set off towards the Abbey, stopping at every information board... More

Even in the drizzling rain, Inch Abbey is worth a visit. In fact, in the rain I think it has an extra special quality. Site of a GoT scene (no spoilers here), it has a mystery all its own, with beautiful views. There's a geocache listed nearby as well, so two for one :)

Visit as a train ride was well presented and an interesting stop The trains are every 45 mins which is plenty to see abbey and relax with a cuppa before train back

Well apart from all those G.O.T. Fans running round in robes and helmets and brandishing swords. Still most of the time it's empty . Beautiful setting. History, entertainment and exploration for the kids. Perfect spot to stop for a picnic. The old graveyard is worth exploring too.

We visited this on our Game of Thrones tour - as it was the scene of one of the episodes( Where Robb Stark was declared King in the North). It was great to see, well preserved and had information at the front for people thinking of visiting without a tour.

Rich history in beautiful surroundings! Don't need to be a Game of thrones fan to appreciate site. Easily envision weddings and other romantic celebrations here.
