“Sligo Abbey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Excellent site to visit. Very good value for money and really interesting. The guide was very informative and there were two options available allowing us time to wander around the site and explore for ourselves. Really enjoyed the story of the love knot and the story of the O'Connors. Thank you this was a joy

“Very Interesting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

A short walk from our B&B brought us to the ancient ruins. The informative brochure ushers your tour of the abbey. Many architectural curiosities abound around every corner. You wonder what it was like to live in a stone cold religious cloister 600 years ago, with the black death stalking the European countryside. Wow,I just scared myself!

“Medieval ruin with hidden secrets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Opens at 10 in the morning. Small entrance fee but worth very cent of it. Take some time, if you are lucky you get a free guided tour by one of the enthusiastic guides. they alove to tell you a lot of stories and anecdotes.

“Easy to assess and in the middle of town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We decided to stop in as we parked across the street to grab a bite to eat and glad that we did. Spent about 30 minutes or so exploring and wish that we had a little more time to spare here. I liked how you to explorer various remains of the abbey, including going upstairs.
