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.

Love this area especially this time of year as all the hydrangeas are in full bloom in countryside around the abbey. Lovely for walks and picnics.

Mount Melleray Abbey is such a beautiful historic place to visit, the peace and views from the Abbey are stunning. The Monks were really welcoming and sweet, it’s a shame there are so few of them left. The grounds are immaculate, there are some fantastic scenic walks you can enjoy or alternately you can visit the little museum to learn... More

This is a beautiful historic religious site. The church is currently being renovated but still lots to see. There is an audio visual presentation and a little museum to learn more about the area and its history. Lots of scenic walks to enjoy and a little coffee shop available for refreshments.

What a fascinating and historic place tucked away in Ireland - it was a great visit with much to see and think about. The monks were very welcoming and inviting and I got a lot out of the experience!
