Here under NIT - day 8, you will find travel information for that day, with practical information including the opening hours and addresses of the different attractions.
Day 1 -
Tyrone Crystal Factory - Mellifont Abbey
Visit Ireland's first Cistercian monastery, Mellifont Abbey. The ruins of this abbey are extremely flattened but the general layout can be discerned.
Only one building remains relatively intact, which has a fine vaulted roof with carved capitals in the 'supporting' columns.
The most amazing structure though is the octagonal two storey lavabo which originally held a fountain.
Experience the art of crystal-making first hand at Tyrone Crystal Factory. There you will go through the history and process of crystal-making and you will be able to watch craftsmen at work.
Go back to Dublin.
