The relatively “recent” history of this property is truly amazing. I loved hearing the stories from the guides as we walked through the house. The gardens are so beautiful. I could have easily spent the entire day on the property but an hour or two would do for those on a tight schedule. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is traveling nearby. Thank you to the caretakers for making this property available to the public.

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.

Absolutely amazing experience , really enjoyed the abbey , garden and surroundings. Amazing scenery. Can enjoy around 3 hours. Better to book ticket online. Shuttle bus service available from abbey to garden every 15-20 minutes, but prefer to walk around its gorgeous. There is amble parking space , restaurant and tidy toilets available…everything well maintained.

Kylemore Abbey is absolutely stunning. Nestled in rolling hills and a calm lake, the building and grounds are just magical. The Abbey has many rooms that are accessible with tons of artifacts throughout. We walked the grounds and saw the Neo-Gothic church, which was small, but very nice. There is a shuttle from near the gift shop that runs up to the walled garden. The gardens are beautiful - very well maintained and just impeccable throughout. The horses and pigs were a nice addition to see also. We grabbed a bite to eat at the restaurant, everything was pretty good. I'd highly recommend stopping here on your journey.

Interesting tour and history. Beautiful location. Lovely walks and gardens are beautiful. Delighted to have visited here on such a fine day too! Certain Hollywood actor/ sexiest man was there with his family also which made our visit all the nicer! 😀
