Having attempted to visit on a previous 2 occasions and being disappointed not to get in due to the Abbey being closed, we were thrilled to find the Abbey open on this occasion. We weren't disappointed. It is a beautiful church. The medieval floor tiles being a highlight.

A true hidden gem out in a small Irish town
март 2019 г.
This 800 year plus old restored Abbey was totally amazing to see. On the outside it is an impressive stone structure with adjoining cemetery that you cannot not miss as you drive into Graiguenamanagh. As you enter the inside even more spectacular is the high wooden ceiling, the beautiful stained glass windows, and the impressive pipe organ. We were so glad we explored off the beaten path and discovered this historical landmark.

A successful restoration of an historic abbey
авг. 2018 г. • Бизнес
From an architectural point of view, this building is spectacular. The interior has been finished to a high standard both of materials and authenticity, and there is a good deal of information provided for the general visitor. An architectural model shows the original extent of the monastic settlement. The monks diverted the river Duiske flowing through the town to provide a constant water supply both for the abbey and for the mill. Indeed the river, whose Irish name means "black water", gave its name to the Abbey. You can see some of the ruins of the original abbey in the recently extended carpark behind the Supervalu grocery shop and post office, but by going down the stairs inside the Abbey you encounter a sculpture of a recumbent knight (presumably a Norman, as the abbey was first established during the period of Norman conquest of Ireland). It is said that the fact that his legs are crossed indicates that he went on a Crusade to the Holy Land; just one of the strange facts you can learn about the history of the Abbey and of Graiguenamanagh itself.

Absolutely beautiful place to visit. The effigy is worth a visit as well. The stained glass windows were completely stunning in particular.

A beautiful Abbey, the highlight for me was the fantastically built, very high wooden ceiling, superb craftsmanship. The magnificent stained glass windows, white washed walls and simple adornments make for a peaceful atmosphere. Well worth visiting.

A Truly Beautiful Cathedral

The cathedral, both exterior and interior, is beautiful with a very interesting history. The adjoining cemetery has at least two high cross headstones. I would agree with previously posted reviews that it's a place to slow down and enjoy.

The ceiling alone is worth a look!
июль 2017 г. • С друзьями
The church is long and soaring, ancient and spare. It's hand-pegged, no nails ceiling is a marvel. The ancient walls are thick and rich with history. There's a model of the former Abbey complex and some nice religious art.

Duiske Abbey doesn't look that exciting from outside but step inside and it is quite a different story, with the light streaming in from the beautiful arched windows. The abbey is in daily use so as well as us tourists you will find regular worshipers. There are lots of information plaques telling the story of the abbey and some books and leaflets available near the entrance. After looking round and getting your photos it's worth taking five minutes to just sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. Graiguenamanagh is a great town to take a walk in, or you can go along the towpath to St Mullin's and back along the River Barrow. It's a chance to take life at a slower pace for a while, just enjoy it.
