A fantastic place. ..the opportunity to take a nice hour+ walk in a wonderful woodland setting. So peaceful and quite. In spring the colour and smell of the bluebells and wild garlic is amazing - and all that is free. For a couple of euro enjoy a guided tour of the abbey. ..well worth it. And finish your afternoon off... More

I believe our tour guide was Brid but I'm not totally sure (she had bright red hair). She did SUCH a great job! She was such a wealth of info about the abbey and was very enthusiastic and thoroughly answered any and all questions asked during the tour. I love that she involved the tour group by asking us what... More

We went for a walk in the woods surrounding the abbey and them went in for the tour. Our guide, Bríd, was great. She kept the tour really interesting asking us questions and was very friendly. The abbey itself is stunning

This was only a flying visit to this abbey as we were doing a whistle stop tour of Wexford but it was an interesting place. The entrance fee appears reasonable - our fee was included in our tour. Our guide gave us a rundown on the history. Quite a bit of restoration work has been undertaken but I agree with... More

Worth a quick visit, doesn't take too long to look round. Has some good walks. Parking is free, and a good tip is that it was free entry when we went on Wednesdays . There is a tea room there too, although we didn't use it on the visit.
