Great to see this place done up. Really nice to see and relaxing. Love the glass added to the side of the building

Wonderful afternoon weather not too bright but the visit was spot on thanks to the young guide who was top of his game. By the time I left I felt I had live at the abbey all those 100's of years back. Just off the n4 so very easy to access. Fab.

inexplicably, there were plenty of vans about showing that there were staff in the abbey. in fact i could see them drinking tea in an ugly facilities building located too close to the abbey. It is nice to see it from the surrounding roads or from the river- but it would be nicer to be able to go in. there was no evidence of maintenance work being undertaken. do we deserve better than this?

Nice photo stop, like most of the abbey ruins it's well done and the glass covering one side will help protect it for the future. Interesting to read the history sheets and learn a bit more of how the abbey became a house.

This was a great stop in the area. The abbey is beautiful and even in the rainy weather rather photogenic. The staff, Thomas in particular, were friendly and welcoming as well as quite knowledgeable about the history of the site.
