Removing the artefacts has disturbed the spirits; now nine ghosts haunt the ruins, and each spirit has a tale to tell.
Explore the ruined monastic site and meet the ghosts of past inhabitants. Use the map to locate each ghostly monk and listen to his story. Select the artefact that belonged to the monk from the menu of excavated finds and return this artefact to put him to rest. Return all nine artefacts to unlock the secret of Nendrum.
The Ghosts of Nendrum is an interactive, location-based app that explores the history of Nendrum Monastery in County Down, Northern Ireland. It is best played on location at Nendrum, but a ‘static version’ of the game allows you to make a virtual visit.
This software was licenced to the Northern Ireland Environment Agency by the BBC.
Nendrum Monastery is managed by NIEA and located on Mahee Island, Strangford Lough, near Comber in County Down, Northern Ireland, UK. It is generally regarded as the best example of a pre-Norman monastic site in Northern Ireland that still has ruins form the original buildings.
