Ballintubber Abbey is really beautiful. Very peaceful Abbey to visit. Simply laid out. The energy is tranquil and you can feel great peace here. The grounds have laid out the journey our Lord took before his crucifixion. Statue of St Patrick is also on this journey. There is a shop on the premises where you can purchase various gifts. Definitely worth a visit to see this magnificent abbey.
We visited this historic Abbey after a brief rainstorm. Lovely Gardens and stations of the Cross both inside and outside . Our Good Fortune, the Abbey is decorated for a wedding taking place just after we leave. It is said that this place has had prayers said continuously since 480 Ad. The story follows the arrival, and then persecution of the Catholic monasteries starting in 1350 and following through to the 1400s-- including the Burning of this place to the ground. This Abbey has been partially restored, to some of its former grandeur.
