We are just back from a long drive to Kylemore Abbey, which is located in the middle of Connemara in Co. Galway.
It took us 2 hours to do 140 Kilometres and we were still in the same County! (I was in Dublin last week, and that trip is 200 milometers, and it took me the same time!) It’s a great drive, but as you get further and further away from Galway city, the roads gets windier, more bumpy, and the odd loose running sheep might reduce your speed. As you drive out of Oughterard, you enter Connemara, with its rugged mountains, beautiful colours, a real treat to the eye!
We have been to Kylemore Abbey before, and as the weather was looking promising, I thought we’d go again. I am so glad we did, as the last time we went to the Easter Egg Hunt, we got rained out! This time the weather was on our side, and we had a fabulous time!
Just a tip – the grounds are extensive, so make sure you are wearing good footwear and why not book your tickets online, it will save you 10 %, so you can have that extra cake/bun/drink:)
If you have never been to Connemara, I thought I’d share this video again, as it combines the song from a French singer called Michel Sardou, with beautiful images of Connemara.
