Ireland: Co. Meath, Mellifont Abbey

In case you didn't know, you can click on these images and enlarge them a bit.

I has posted the floor plan of the abbey here. And a photo of what is left of facing south. At the back of the scene, you see what is left of the lavabo, where the monks would ceremonially wash their hands, face, and tonsure, which represents Christ's crown of thorns.

Behind the lavabo on the left is the refectory, where the monk's ate.
