  • We stopped here while strolling over to Ashford castle. It's lovely to relax on a sunny day and enjoy the setting.  more »
  • The monks use to fish from this place during medieval times. A nice walking trail leading to the Ashford castle starts after the bridge laying next to the monk's hut.  more »
