Spent a wonderful day here on Fathers day. With four small kids, always looking for something new to do and it didn't disappoint. Beautiful setting, fabulously kept. All staff we encountered were warm and friendly and welcoming. The place was immaculate and all public areas were clean and tidy. Bathrooms were really clean too which is rare. The food in the restaurant was also great. Great value for a family too. Highly recommend a visit.

Kylemore Abbey is as pretty as it is before and during the pandemic. There might be some slight changes about wearing masks indoors and outdoor dining, but everything is still breathtaking. You'd feel actually safe as you walk through the trails and commune with nature along the way. It's such a lovely walk, with magnificent view too

Beautiful! The scenic drive through the Connemarra Mountains to this destination is something you will never forget. Just spectacular! The Abbey and its grounds are beautiful and well maintained. I did not have a chance to tour the gardens which I have heard are amazing, but the walk through the Abbey and the memorial church was very relaxing and enjoyable. This is definitely my #1 favorite experience of my trip to Ireland. I would definitely do it again.

Such beautiful surroundings, the views alone are stunning. We heard a cuckoo three times, the first time I've heard one in 25 years. The Gothic Church, very sad story behind why it was built but what a fantastic legacy, Margaret Henry's life and memory will live on forever. The house itself is beautiful, but the walled gardens, wow. There is a shuttle bus running from the house to the gardens so we took it with the intention of walking back, but it's a decent enough spin to the gardens so we got the bus back too! The gardens are stunning. Make sure you bring your camera and good walking shoes. We visited the cafe, the food was lovely. Toilets everywhere, every toilet was clean and well stocked. The gift shop is lovely too and we bought a few souvenirs, very reasonably priced. Had a lovely day.

I love visiting Kylemore Abbey. It has been five years since we were last there and there were a lot of changes. I really loved the dining room and how close you could get to the items on display. There was a guide there who informed us of her presence and offered to explain things to us if we needed it. I loved the videos informing us of the history to the Abbey. The cafe served really great food. The gardens are wonderful and very well maintained.
