Kilcrea Abbey & Castle

Kilcrea Abbey

The Bell tower

The Scriptorium, apparently manuscripts written here are preserved in Rennes, France

Kilcrea castle, a tower house with bawn wall and a guard tower

Today I visited Kilcrea abbey, been hoping to get there for years, and visiting the site, it did not disappoint at all, probably one of the best intact and most impressive medieval sites I have visited. And so untouristy, barely any people there, allowed you to have alot of time alone to soak it in and just listen to the silence and ambience. Well worth a visit.
