There are so many great features at this site. Great stories and crosses. I loved this site even more than visiting Glendalough. There are tour buses that stop but not as many as at Glendalough. Must visit. Spent about 2.5 hours here, must view video.

This place in a nice place to visit if you are close by. It was nice to see the old crosses and get to know more about its history. But I wasn't overwhelmed by this place. The tea house was ok.

Heather, We had a car. Sans that, I would think there would be local coach tours?
