Opening Times Easter and June to September: 11.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. Rest of year Sundays: 2.30 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. Description Irish history. The only remaining wall of the original church stands, and walk the short distance to the mill. Founded by the Cistercians in the 12th century, the development of the waterwheels to provide mechanical power was mainly motivated by a desire to give this contemplative order more time for prayer and relection. The derelict site was wonderfully restored by the Abbey Mills Restoration Trust when they acquired the property in 1989.

A coffee shop will help you relax and enjoy the attractively landscaped grounds. ance to the m
