Grey Abbey Cistercian abbey

This Cistercian Abbey church and its living quarters were founded in 1193 by Affreca wife of John de Courcy, the Anglo-Norman invader of East Ulster.
Visitors are welcome to wander among the ruins and the lawns, where picnics are also permitted.
Grey Abbey is the best example of Anglo Norman Cistercian architecture in Ulster. It is the daughter house of Holy Cultram (Cumbria). Founded in 1193 by John de Courcy’s wife, Affreca. Poor and decayed in the late Middle Ages the abbey was dissolved in 1541, but in the early 17th century was granted to Sir Hugh Montgomery and the nave was refurbished for parish worship until the late 15th century. The remains consist of the church cloister and surrounding buildings to the south.

  • “Had the pleasure of staying in No.38 recently while on a short family holiday, Owner is perfect host. House was nice and clean and comfortable. It was very well equipped for home away from home - everything you'd have in your own house. Fridge was stocked with some essentials on arrival which was a nice touch. Would happily recommend this property”.

  • "There's 3 little coffeeshops in the village and the Wildfowler pub/restaurant - all seem to serve very nice food. The breakfast in the Hoops Courtyard Cafe was possibly the nicest I've ever had."

  • The house was in excellent condition and had everything we could ask for. The host was very respectful and gave plenty of information of things to do in the town as well as services available. I don’t have any compliments about my stay.

  • "Big thanks to great hosts for allowing us to use their lovely cottage for 4 weeks while we were relocating from isle of man to northern ireland. Cottage has all the amenities you need for a great holiday and the hosts are a lovely couple who definitely go that extra mile for their guests. The breakfast starter pack was very much appreciated. The cottage is in a nice area, friendly locals, has a well-stocked local shop as well as a butcher/farm shop. You won't go hungry several places to eat out in all within walking distance, we especially enjoyed the Wildfowler Pub. Our pet dog Chalky was also made welcome, and even got to stay a night with our hosts and got spoilt!"

  • We needed to find a comfy house at short notice so that we could attend to some family business & Boyd came up trumps. Very helpful from the outset, understanding of our circumstances & was good enough to allow us to check-in late on Boxing Day evening. Boyd met us, shared all the info necessary about the house & made it clear that it was fine to contact him at any time if required. (Didn't need to as everything was great!) Number 38 is a good holiday option for a small family or two couples looking to explore County Down & within an easy drive of Belfast & beyond.

  • "We stayed here for the last week in August and were very impressed. The rooms were most comfortable and the kitchen and bathroom well equipped. All spotlessly clean. The breakfast ‘starter pack’ was generous enough to last half the week! Good value for the money. The local shop just across the street and a good local café are added conveniences – a popular restaurant had also just opened across the road. Two minutes’ walk from the lough shore".

  • "We spent a cosy Christmas here with our two and five-year-old kids who loved it. Boyd couldn’t have made us feel more welcome and the house is handy to the Wildfowler pub and restaurant, various cafes, the local shop and the excellent butchers. Would recommend it for a stay and hope to revisit myself one day".
