I went to Mount Mellary with a group of people that I was doing work experience with, and as it was my first time; I was looking forward to it as I had wanted to visit the place for a long time.
Mount Mellary is just outside the village of Cappoquin, and the drive up to it is truly amazing...once you see the abbey come into view - its amazing. Walking around the abbey is very peaceful, and looking towards the views of the Knockmealdown mountains is breathtaking. There is a shop there that sells items but was not open when we were there unfortunately.
The cafe sells amazing food..well worth a visit too
