Fabulous day trip! The bus ride to Kylemore Abbey was filled with spectacular scenery. I wish we had more time at each stop, but there weren't enough hours in the day. The tour was excellent and extremely well organized.
Lally bus tours did a great job our driver Martin was ver good at narrating the trip and keeping us safe, he stooped when he could for pictures. Kylemore Abbey is stunning I highly recommend it!
Our driver was excellent and gave us lots of great photo spots to stop at!
Excellent trip very informative, could have used a little more time at Kylemore Abbey but overall excellent.
We went with a local company, Lally Tours and they were great. The day was rainy and windy but it was a good day to be on a bus touring the beautiful countryside. We stopped to take pictures along the way and the stop at the small Leenane village was a nice break to get a Baileys coffee! Kylemore Abbey is beautiful and we opted not to pay extra to go into the abbey and gardens - which gave us plenty of time to get a delicious lunch in the café and shop in the gift shop. We also took lots of pictures of the abbey from across the lake. Just beautiful. Last stop was at a charming shop, Standun in Spiddal where lots of good gifts can be found. I would recommend this trip to see the countryside, sheep and mountains of Connemara. But if you are looking for a hike or to get out and spend time in nature, this is not it.
Enjoyable guide and lovely scenery, but the Abbey is a LOT smaller than it looks like or at least the areas that visitors are allowed to access, so it was somewhat of a let-down, particularly considering how long it takes to get there. If you are in the area, do stop in for a visit, but not worth an entire day to see.
