Yes, also conveniently located across the street from our B & B! Great tour with Margaret. She was friendly, very knowledgeable and funny as tour guide. We hit it right, a nice sunny early morning just after it opened for the day. Great stop!

I was lovely to walk around the abbey and find little decorative treasures. We got there early and there were only a few people around. It was nice to go somewhere that isn't bombarded with tour buses.

Hi Edward, they have a small centre on-site and they may be able to help you. It is run by the Office of Public Works, OPW. if you search online they should have a contact email you could use.
