We journeyed on the Downpatrick and Country Railway to Inch Abbey. The abbey is steeped in history and a great monument to the Gothic architecture. Even if you did not enjoy visiting the Abbey, the scenery around it is very beautiful.

We visited here based on the GOT connection. The abbey is worthy of a stop. Although I am sure anyone would enjoy a walk around these ruins. Also the scenery behind the abbey is really nice.

We visited the 12th-13th century ruins of Inch Abbey after spending much of the day at Castle Ward. Both locations were chosen because we have Game of Thrones fans in the family. Castle Ward was a bit disappointing to them (didn't look enough like Winterfell apparently) but we still enjoyed our day there very much. Inch Abbey looks more like... More

We visited Inch Abbey on a beautiful day it's such a peaceful place, that is until the Game of Thrones tours turn up, we had no idea it was used in the show but was interesting to watch the many people turning up with swords, cloaks and props.

Lovely views and some great history can be seen at inch abbey. If you are in the area, I would recommend visiting. It is down a winding lane and it is a 200 metre or so walk to the abbey itself. But beautiful scenery on a mice day

We dropped by Inch Abbey on a late September afternoon. The soft sunlight at that time of day was a perfect compliment to the site. We were totally alone - very peaceful. On the site's closely mown green grass and tidy area arose the ruins of what must have been a magnificent building. The remnants are awesome to wander through... More

we visited Inch Abbey as part of a Game of Thrones tour, we were told the history, a Viking princess built this abbey who married John de Courcy who was a knight, very romantic and I'm sure it has a fascinating history, the setting is beautiful, it's a ruin so was difficult to imagine the history during this very short...
