There are no ancient relics to be seen here. You will have to travel to Dublin to see the Cross of Cong. Scampering amongst the many tombs in the grounds does yield some fabulous photographic viewpoints of this ruin. It was also enjoyable walking through the beautiful landscape along the stream and out to the river to see the Fishing House.

Though in ruins, enough of the Abbey remains to imagine the monks' lives and that time long gone. I especially enjoyed the Monks' fishing house.

Well worth a look if you are in the area. Do make sure you take a walk to the river behind. There you will find the remains of a little stone "fishing hut" over the river next to a delightful bridge. We saw it on a sunny day and it was breathtaking!
