The place is good only if you are a got fan. It was where Robb camp was placed and they hailed him as king in the north. Good place for some nice got themed photos

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.

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.
