The town is situated on the south bank of the river Teifi between Cardigan and Poppit Sands. There is a small High Street with a handful of shops and an excellent Fish and Chip takeaway. Also in the town are an art gallery, several pubs, a water mill and a ruined Abbey.
St Dogmaels Abbey
At the center of St Dogmaels is the now ruined Abbey. Build in around 1115 and occupying the site of a former pre-Norman monastery it achieved Abbey status in around 1120. The current ruins are a mix of building styles as additions were built and alterations made to the existing buildings. There is a vistors centre, The Coach House which houses a cafe, gallery, gift shop and museum.
Plays are performed in the Abbey Ruins during the summer with a range of actors from the local and national scene.
Nearby St Dogmaels Abbey is Y Felin (The Mill), one of only a handful of working water mills left in Wales. Here they still use the mill to grind flour using machinery installed in 1820. A range of stoneground flours can be bought direct from the mill shop.
