This is off the beaten path but worth exploring. Follow the creek up to the caves, then head down to the Waters edge to see St Patrick's well and the rosary path. Doesn't take too long but a really nice spot

Very scenic and near the caves and St. Patrick's well. Unfortunately, the mill wasn't open on the day we visited.

The Abbey mill has a beautiful walkway around the mills, caves and down to St Patricks well. Great for a family day out and for walkers. A lovely cafe shop here too.
