Went in August 2014 as part of a Railtours Ireland group. The grounds are very beautiful, The abbey itself is a truly amazing building with a rich history, first as a private home and then as a school. You only get the chance to see quite a small bit of the inside of the building, which is a bit disappointing, but the walled garden makes up for this. It is about a mile up to this garden, but there is a shuttle bus which runs about every 15 minutes. We were a bit pressed for time. If you are going in your own vehicle I would suggest giving yourself about three hours to see it properly, particularly if you wish to use the restaurant. I cannot comment on it as I did not have time to join the big queue for food. Well worth a visit.
