If you like ruins this is a very nice one. THey have it well set up for your own tour. You can get the feel for what it must have been like. Everyone who worked there was very helpful.Small soo doesn't take much time but well worth a visit. Parking right across the street.

Very interesting spot to see if in Sligo. The abbey is in quite good condition, and you can explore the grounds and inside of remaining building. There is an admission fee of €3 per person, and guided tours are provided, however, they are not times and if a guide is already with a group you either have to wait to have a tour, catch up to the group, or go through on your own. We were told that as it was lunch time, they would not be doing a tour for just the two of us and we would need to wait for a few more people to come in. Not a huge issue, but would have enjoyed hearing more info, as many of the places we have stopped do not have anyone there, much less tours. But we wandered around and read the self-guided tour map. Individual at reception was helpful in answering a few questions following. Enjoyed, even though raining a bit (just take umbrella). Lovely stop along the way.

History buffs will enjoy touring this medieval building with its wonderful architectural features. Recommend carrying an umbrella as much of the tour is without a roof exposing you to the elements.

I came on a wintry day and there was one other person there but me, and it was slightly creepy.
It does have some very ancient stone in there, though.
