Our first tour on our Ireland trip was to see Kylemore Abbey.
The story of Kylemore is a remarkable history spanning over 150 years.
The landscape on the way was lovely – hills and streams and sheep frolicking!
History Talks of the Abbey are available each day at 11:30am. 13:00pm & 15.00pm.
We arrived just in time for the 11:30 talk.
We walked down the trail to see the church.
Ireland has seen a lot of rain lately and there is some flooding.
We loved this teal bench. Don’t think we’ll go boating though!
The kids loved the little Gothic Church beside Kylemore Abbey.
We took the shuttle bus to the Victorian Garden and then walked back to the visitor’s center.
The walk back has children’s activities like naturally made musical instruments.
The kids loved running up the stone steps to donate a coin in the grotto.
Children under 10 are FREE!
