Really great National Trust property. Only £5 entry. Allow 2 hours at least. Follow the map so you get everything. Good walking shoes as wet under foot. Views spectacular! Toilet facilities in two spots. Recommended

This is well worth a visit especially if your a national trust member. Make sure you park in the nearest car park so that you can go to the right temple

Incredible view of the sea and surrounding beaches - on a clear day you can see to Scotland. The temple itself is stunning. It's quite small, but has amazing acoustics. There are also some other ruins near the temple, and loads of sheep. If you...More

On May 19th the National Trust staff forgot to open the temple building at 10am which is when it was advertised to be open. When I enquired at 10.30 they said the 'ranger had forgotten this morning' So don't plan to go in to the...More

Some nice, if short, walks in and around Mussenden with ruins, a small lake, woods and gardens to explore. Good for photos. Definitely worth a stop if you're touring the North Coast.

Lovely site at the top of a cliff. Free to visit although it is on the same site as Downhill Demense. Don't pay to visit Downhill Demense as all the most interesting parts can be viewed for nothing. Mussendum, other than its location, is a...More

Hi, hope I'm not too late with the answer. Parking is free and from what I gather you can pretty much enter the site at any time. The visitor's center may just be closed. It's a bit of a trek to get to the temple... More
