Photo walk through Kylemore Abbey, CONNEMARA



 Kylemore Abbey


Kylemore abbey is one of the most visited places in Ireland. The very trip to here is an absolute treat! Driving on the little winding roads between the mountains is absolutely amazing. The view around every turn is unforgettable. 



So when you reach the car park you are already all excited from all the beauty around you and your fingers are itching to take some pictures. 
I know there are bus tours coming here, but I prefer coming on my own time and not being rushed in a group. You can easily spend a whole day on the grounds, the place is enormous, there are even little shuttle buses to get you to the Victorian garden. There is a Cafe or you can bring your own picnic basket, and believe me there a few perfect picnic spots where you can spent a few hours just staring at the beauty all around you. I certainly recommend you do that! And the choice for picnic can be difficult -  too many gorgeous places to choose from. 

    When I was here, the day started with blue sky and sun, and it finished in the late afternoon with fog and drizzle. This is Connemara for you. My advice is: never leave your raincoat home.
