“Bring your stuff with you”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

I guess there have been some break ins here so bring your stuff with you. Nice site, similar to a lot of other ruins in Ireland. Worth the visit if you are in the County Meath.

“Fun on a hill”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

The teens that are members of a spiritual group really enjoyed their time at this historic location and spent lots of time climbing on the ruins of the monastery that stands here. Bathe adults had a hard time getting the teens to leave. And we got lots of wonderful pictures here.

Fabulous views from here right across to the hill of tara & beyond on a clear day. Up a steep hill. Church still recogniseable. Also our Ladys well here which is visited every year on 15th. August

“Well preserved”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

This is a well preserved & well looked after historic site that we visited on a dreary day but it was magnificent. The view would have been good on a clear day.

“Why is there not more site information/history?”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

A nice place to visit, but the lack of historic/site information baffles me! Surely the OPW could put up more information boards explaining what we are visiting and its historic significance.
