A visit to Kylemore Abbey and the Victorian Walled Garden in Connemara is the perfect day out. It’s where I always bring my visitors and I never tire of the dramatic beautiful landscape and the stunning location- as well as the views on the way to the Abbey. When you get there you can experience the Victorian atmosphere of the restored rooms of the Abbey, walk along the lake to the gothic chapel, take a trip to the Victorian walled garden and enjoy a very satisfying lunch in the café as well as checking out the great range of gifts and locally produced artisan foods available in the shop. (87km 1hr 30mns driving)
