One of the gorgeous formal gardens.

The Abbey, as seen when you first enter.

Kylemore Abbey and Victorian Walled Garden is located in Connemara, County Galway, Ireland. It's a gorgeous day trip. With it's mountainous backdrops, gothic architecture, working gardens, and beautiful wildlife, you may want to make this a two day trip. The gardens alone, could fill a full day of meandering.  I'm looking forward to returning in the future.

Lovely spot to sit and enjoy the natural surroundings and views!

The gardens are true working gardens, covering roughly 6 acres, includes flower beds, glass houses, gardeners' houses, and the kitchen garden. We enjoyed a lovely afternoon meal made with ingredients from the kitchen garden. Truly a treat!
