“Good but no tour guide”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Mum, my bro and myself went here on a family trip together when we were kids. The detail of the abbey was marvelous that it brings a good vibe of history with you. We didn't know all of the stuff in it which was a shame that there wasnt any tour guides about. Mum immedietly asked 2 French ladies when the tour guide is available in which they apologise that they didn't have a word of english. I hope when I come back again that there would be a tour guide available the next time.

“3 Eur for what now?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

It would have been a 3 Euro admission but we obted out since you can just walk around the abbey on the road.
I do like what they have done with the glass on one side of the abbey though.

“Boyle Abbey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The tour of Boyle Abbey is very interesting and most enjoyable. The abbey has been recently renovated with each stone being numbered, catalogued and then all built back the exact same as they origionally were.

“Interesting history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We really enjoyed visiting this site. The employee at the entrance was more than happy to talk to us and share interesting pieces of information about the site. We enjoyed walking around the site and reading the posted information. It is a beautiful site to visit on a nice day.

“A little bit of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Since the work that has been done the Abbey is even more interesting and never seems to be too busy so you are able to take your time examining all the artifacts. My visitors always seem to enjoy going there.
