What travellers are saying
- Olivia who was working on the front desk asked if we wanted a tour. She gave us a most thorough history of the Coakley family history and the history of the Abbey. She walked with us through the Abbey and was a most delightful and knowledable host. She is a great historian and delivered a very interesting story.Written 2 October 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Tuesday 2nd August and we took a stroll along this beautiful stretch of almost deserted beach. It is located on the East coast of Ireland in County Wexford between Arklow and Courtown.
It sits in between the rocks and cliffs at both Clones Strand at one end and Saleen Strand at the other.
The golden sand is peppered, in places, with pebbles and is washed by the lively Irish Sea. When we were here the sea was a bit rough and the waves were crashing. A few brave souls did battle with the waves and cold water.
We did meet a number of people walking their dogs, great beach walks in either direction.
Looking along the beach towards Saleen Strand we could see that the sand dunes were shored up by coastal erosion defenses, they had not yet reached the section of the beach where we were. Some of the dunes were in a bad state, there was a sign warning of collapsing sand dunes.
This visit was a real trip down memory lane as we had family holiday home just over the dunes in Killbegnt.Many happy hours were spend here during childhood and teenage years.Written 13 August 2022
- This is an amazing exhibition which seems to be run by volunteers. We met Greta who was an extremely knowledgable and friendly and helpful member of staff. She gave great information and advice about family genealogy and local history and connections as well as great information on the museum itself. It’s very atmospheric because it’s the headquarters and the displays are really interesting and informative. A special section on the role of women. There’s interactive activities and lots of first hand memorabilia. It was an unforgettable experience. We will definitely return.Written 26 October 2019
