We visit the Castle and after we walked over the bridge till we arrived at the walled garden another lovely place. If you love the nature, flower, birds and old buildings that’s the place.

While on tour around Wexford we visited Tintern Abbey which is connected to the Abbey at Tintern in the Wye Valley. A beautiful old building which has guided tours. It is worth a few hours to look around if you are in the areaj

We had spent an hour in the abbey. It has a fantastic view. It’s a nice meeting of nature and architecture.

Very well kept piece of Irish heritage. Beautiful forest walks and the view of the Abbey from the bridge was very unspoiled. Nice little coffee shop on site with Badger & Dodo coffee and a warm welcome.
