They explained in detail any queries we had.It was nice also to enjoy coffee and a cake in... More

We lived down the road from this little hidden gem for 2 months and would come to Tintern Abbey nearly every day to let my four kids play and get lost in the woods. It was an absolute dream come true to be able to wander the green woods and ruined mill. The Abbey was not open while we were... More

I've been here 3 times in the last 6 months alone. Our last visit was just last week, and even in bleak January, it was worth the visit. Lots of lovely walking trails, and you could easily spend a couple of hours at least here, exploring the Abbey, church, graveyard, the bridge and magnificent Colclough Walled Garden situated just a...

Went here with family.Coffee house not open for the new year. Have visited before and can couch for the coffee house being a nice part of the visit. Really nice series of walks around the abbey made out now. They are well explained and simple to follow. The visit to the abbey itself is worth a whirl.

Been to the abbey a few times and it's a well maintained piece of Irish history. Recently we found out about some new walking trails though the forests which are really super. Good walkways ensure no muddy shoes in your car afterwards, always a plus. A number of different colour coded trails from the Abbey, one of which ends at... More

A very worthwhile destination for people who appreciate history, formal gardens or a relaxed place to pass a quiet few hours with small children. The ruins have been repaired and are well maintained by the OPW. The journey there is a treat in itself as the situation is a treat for eye and ear. Tintern Abbey has much to offer... More

Really nice place if you want to go for a walk. Was there with the dog and had a great walk Christmas morning. Used to run around there as a child before any type of renovation started so was very impressed with the work they are doing there.
