BEAUTIFUL SPOT

Beautifully kept spot right on the shores of the Quoile River. A must to visit. Narrow road to it. Fair sized car Park.

The Abbey is signposted off the main road but after that you can get a little lost. There is a free car park but no other facilities. The ruins are picturesque and the setting is beautiful. Bring a picnic on a good day or take the Steam Train from Downpatrick and County Down Railway (easily found in Downpatrick) and make... More

Lovely place to visit on a good day. Kids will love climbing over the old walls and playing hide and seek.

Not worth the drive nor time. We thought there were some ancient stone formation there, similar to Stonehenge. We drove around the area, but no sight nor signs of any such formation. If they are there, they need signs.

One of my favorite parts of visiting other countries is how much history you can find there as compared to living in the US. Inch Abbey is one of those places that is incredible to see still standing after over 1,000 years. It's fascinating to think about how much history must have been here. Really picturesque, whether in sunshine or... More

Scene of King in the North from Game of Thrones. Nice ruins, a must see for GOT fans. Visited as part of a guided tour.

Absolutely fantastic & the tour was excellent visiting many of the film locations. Inch Abbey was where Rob Stark became the King of the North. Loads of fun

Filmed in an episode of Game of Thrones, it was fun to visit these ruins. The plaques around this location has many unique facts about Cistercian life, what it would have been for the Monks that lived there. Quite impressive! Breathtaking view of Down Cathedral and the village across the lough.

Inch Abbey is near Castle Ward and can be included in a day spent in the area. Built in 1180 and pulled down under the reformation in 1542, it was never rebuilt. It is the earliest example of Gothic architecture in Ireland. The ruins are quite extensive and exceptionally well signposted so you know exactly what you are looking at.... More
