About

Our Lady of Bethlehem Abbey is a Cistercian monastery in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It was founded in 1948 and currently numbers 20 monks. The monks live a secluded, contemplative life in which prayer holds a central position. In addition to private prayer and study, they assemble in church eight times a day for prayer and Mass. The monastery has a guesthouse for those wishing to make short retreats, a Repository, a Gift Shop and a Coffee Shop.

The Gift shop stocks Irish-made souvenir goods - crystal, china, peat, Aran knitwear, candles and much more.
