The abbey is spectacular, the cafe bursting with fresh , homemade produce, some of which you can buy for home consumption,the walk to the ancient bridge is short but really picturesque,the new trails are fabulous and the "piece de resistance" is the Walled Garden. This cannot be missed and if you are there on a Saturday you will get the... More

The well restored Tintern Abbey was built by monks from Tintern in South Wales. Latterly the Colclough family lived there for 400 years until 1959 and it was eventually left to the Irish state. An interesting building with very pleasant and helpful staff/volunteers. The tea room is definitely worth a visit. There are some beautiful woodland walks but what I... More

We spent longer than planned in the tearooms so our visit around the abbey wasn't as long as we had intended. Very peaceful and beautiful and wonderfully restored in some places. It wasn't at all busy when we were there so we could really soak up the atmosphere and the history of the rooms! The large window room was gorgeous... More

This abbey is well worth a visit. You can visit inside the abbey and climb up the stairs within the abbey. There is a cafe for hot drinks abs snacks which has seating within the abbey walls which makes for a lovely setting. Also there is a number of walks around the abbey.

We visited the abbey and had a tour after a very informative talk from a most helpful lady on the staff. A wonderful job of restoration has been done on the abbey itself. The tea room was clean and welcoming but the cakes were far to nice !!.As it started to rain we did not do any of the walks... More

Spent a day here and at the Colclough Gardens. They have done a great restoration job on the Abbey. Nice tea room in the shadow of the Abbey - if weather permits, its a great place to sit out and admire the tower accross the lawn. The Abbey is beautifully situated beside a river leading to an inlet near Saltmills.... More

We visited on a damp day and had a tour of the historic abbey. Amazing 800 years of history with interesting stories of land, war and religion. Pity that some of the site was destroyed in the 1970's.

We did the abbey and tea rooms then a walk to the walled garden and through the woods. The walks were needed after the tea rooms. All were excellent. The abbey is tranquil and interesting, the walled gardens beautiful and smelled amazing. The woods well sign posted. Lots to see and do

Tintern Abbey is well worth a visit when in the area. We go here during winter, spring, summer, and my favourite time Autumn. The Abbey itself is very interesting and the restoration work that had been done to the Colclough Walked garden will really take your breath away. The colours and smells as you walk around the walled garden (a... More
