On arrival could feel the spirituality in the abbey. The setting is in a beautiful location. The museum is quite interesting with a tea shop next door.

I have been here three times in Melleray Grotto. Before it was lovely. I even brought my parents from the Philippines here as they are more religious than me. It's nice and peaceful here. But for my third visit here since May 2008. it was alright. Well it is tidy but needs to be looked after more. I wish I... More

Mount Melleray Abbey is a beautiful place to visit. It is a relaxing Abbey in a lovely location. It is a beautiful place to walk around or just sit in the church a relax.

It's a little bit like stepping back a few decades to when the pace of life was slower. While Mt. Melleray is a Catholic Church it is open to people of all or no faith to visit. Visit here and you'll come away feeling better in yourself.

Mount Melleray was a place of pilgrimage for many years between the 1950's and 1980's and perhaps before. If you are lucky the newer of the two chapels will be open. This is beautifully maintained and the monks prayer stalls and the altar are wonderful; there is an air of real holiness and sanctity. The second and older chapel is... More

The cross was erected in 1950. The hike to it takes you through several different types of terrain which makes it very interesting. The Abbey itself was very beautiful and worth the visit.
