The ruins were an interesting sight especially the big facade is very impressive. There are info point here and there which give out nice information, how ever it would be nice to understand the structures more in detail and how the life in the convent would have been like. The ticket machine was broken (it couldn't print out paper) so we got in when someone else got out. It would be nice that the entrance would be more accessible and not dependent on the wits of the tourist. Pirita beach and Metsakalmistu are nearby sights that can be reached by car or bike.

interesting but nothing unusual in the new convent. The ruins of the original building were obvious but we could not tour them.

2€ will gain you access to the extensive ruin that at one time housed both nuns and monks under one roof. We visited in the winter months and were the only people on site which felt strange and eerie. The information boards throughout gave a real insight to how life would have been and even though the convent is a ruin the living areas are still evident and the history easy to follow. There were gated towers and cellars that could be accessed however we chose not to given the time of day with light starting to fade. I could imagine this will be a great place to visit in the spring/summer months as the grounds are extensive and pretty.

The ruins are accessible with a €2 ticket bought from the vending machine outside. The ruins were much larger and more elaborate than I had expected. It was nice to be able to walk around everywhere and explore the site.

You could visit Kadriorg Park and the Soviet war memorial and the monument to the victims of communism on your way here, making it a good way to spend a morning or afternoon outside of the city centre.

The Pirita convent in ruins is a nice building to be visited, specially if you're willing to see more of Tallinn than just the Old Town. Beautiful construction, and the surrounding neighborhood is also worth the visit. The forest cemetery is close by, and a beautiful place to enjoy the peace of nature.

We stopped at Pirita late in the afternoon on the way to NOA Chefs Hall for dinner. The small cemetery and convent ruins are hauntingly beautiful. A little bit out of the old town but good public transport connections. I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit here but if you are nearby or have plenty of time, it is definitely worth a visit. The sunlight on the ruins late in the afternoon was especially photogenic.

Beautiful blooms at Kadriorg Park and the ruins of an old monastery for both monks and nuns from the 15th century, St. Brigit’s Convent or Pirita Klooster. This convent is actually used as a venue for concerts!

Sadly we were only able to see the outside of this lovely ruined 15th century convent on the bank of the Pirita River as we drove past it on the Hop-On Hop-Off bus, but they gave us enough information that we are determined to visit the convent properly next time we are in Tallinn.

My friend and I visited on 19th May. Although the convent was heavily attacked and looted during the Livonian War, the structure is imposing yet impressive and you can take some magnificent pictures. Although there is information about the different segments of the convent at the entrance, more information or a map to show what it may have looked at would have made the visit more interesting. Nonetheless, it cost little to visit and I highly recommend!
