Steeped in history, the Franciscan Friars have been here for 750 years. The restored abbey is beautiful in its simplicity. The gardens are wonderful and tranquil. Well worth a visit

We walked through the grounds of this lovely place one evening. The Stations of the Cross in the woods was lovely as was the entire grounds. It had a lovely peaceful feeling for everyone

We visited again and found the park, with its statues of the station of the cross, remains carefully maintained. Wheelchair accessible. A great place for a few moments quiet contemplation, and for some emotive photography.

So peaceful. And the outdoors stations of the Cross are amazing. The church is beautiful and I loved the designated areas where one could sit and pray in peace.

There are two award-winning dining options in Multyfarnham: Weirs Gastropub and An Tintáin. If the weather is appropriate, after enjoying the offerings at either of the afore-mentioned, take the short walk down the hill to the Friary. It is a fascinating look into the history...More

Worth reading up about this ancient Friary before you visit. Fantastic history to the place. The grounds are slightly surreal - we arrived in October with nobody about and it was a really peaceful spot. The life-size statues of the stations of the cross add...More
