Boyle Abbey Reviews
Great to see this place done up. Really nice to see and relaxing. Love the glass added to the side of the building more »
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... more »
This is an amazing place. The ruins are the most intact/preserved that I have seen so far in Ireland. Eugene and Thomas at the guest check in center are friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. Maps are given out with the highlights pointed out for you. Do not miss this one.
This was my favorite place amongst all the places I visited. If you are a sensitive sort, place your hand upon the walls of the Abbey. Feels like you are touching the energy of those who dwelled here centuries ago.
