An impressive and well preserved Cistercian Monastery which was founded in the 12th century under the patronage of the local ruling family, the McDermott’s. Though altered somewhat  during the 17th and 18th centuries when it was used to accommodate a military garrison, Boyle Abbey nevertheless retains its ability to impress the visitor as one of the most formidable of the early Cistercian foundations inIreland. A restored gatehouse of 16th/17th century houses an exhibition. Restricted access for people with disabilities. Guided tours available.
