We visited Inch Abbey on a beautiful day it's such a peaceful place, that is until the Game of Thrones tours turn up, we had no idea it was used in the show but was interesting to watch the many people turning up with swords, cloaks and props.

Lovely views and some great history can be seen at inch abbey. If you are in the area, I would recommend visiting. It is down a winding lane and it is a 200 metre or so walk to the abbey itself. But beautiful scenery on a mice day

We dropped by Inch Abbey on a late September afternoon. The soft sunlight at that time of day was a perfect compliment to the site. We were totally alone - very peaceful. On the site's closely mown green grass and tidy area arose the ruins of what must have been a magnificent building. The remnants are awesome to wander through... More

we visited Inch Abbey as part of a Game of Thrones tour, we were told the history, a Viking princess built this abbey who married John de Courcy who was a knight, very romantic and I'm sure it has a fascinating history, the setting is beautiful, it's a ruin so was difficult to imagine the history during this very short...

We visited Inch Abbey on our Game Of Thrones - Winterfell tour. We were there for less than an hour and I wish we had more time. The ruins are impressive and offer numerous photo possibilities for pros and amateurs alike. You also get a beautiful view of Down Cathedral, the final resting place of St. Patrick. This is another... More

We took the steam train from Downpatrick to Inch Abbey. It's a short trip bit adds something a little different to the day. On a sunny day it's worth a visit, they had a guide at the Abbey to explain the different areas. If you like history it's great bit remember it's a ruin so don't expect to spend time... More

Inch Abbey is a quiet local spot for dog walkers, there are picturesque ruins beside a lake. It feels like you have gone back in time, peaceful and incredibly beautiful. Game of Throne used it as a set, but there are no facilities beyond a car park which adds to its charm.

Beautiful spot on the edge of the Quoile. The ruins of the Abbey have recently been a setting for Game of Thrones. Walk around the stones, have a look at the explanatory notice boards and, if you have one, bring a dog.
