At the moment it is free to enter as there is renovation to the nave. But despite the ongoing works, there was lots to see and admire. The carvings on the pillars, each individual, were fascinating. The OPW guide told us details of each one to look for - including the sexually explicit one!

Free Admission at the time took my daughter and son-in-law when they came to visit and they were very impressed with the new look

It'sa very interesting site and it's fantastic to see so much work and effort in giving an insight into what it would have looked like in it's day.
