The abbey had scaffolding up on part of it so we could not get a full picture, but it is a truly beautiful sight. Since we went in January, we were not able to see the walled garden at its best, but everything about this stop was magical! Mickey our tour guide was delightful, very knowledgeable and quite witty. Would recommend and go again especially in spring or summer!
Great tour, though i wish wed had more time in Connemara. But im being picky. Great experience.
What an amazing day trip to Connemara... stopping at the beautiful Ross Errily Friary and Kylemore Abbey. The stop in the quaint village of Cong was just fantastic... more beautiful sights and great little shops. But best of all was our driver... who was full of so much knowledge of Ireland's history. We all had the best time! I would STRONGLY suggest this tour!
A trip to the spectacular Connamurra and beautiful Kylemore Abbey is a must. I was not disappointed. Our bus driver Mike D kept us entertained all day. Well worth visiting.
Loved getting out into the country on this tour! The driver was very chatty and had a lot of great information to share. We mostly took this trip to get out to Cong for the Quiet Man museum, but found that we really loved visiting Kylemore Abbey. This should definitely be at the top of your list if you're looking for great views, and a great story.
The Abbey itself is simply stunning - there is LOTS of walking to do between the gardens, the Abbey and the chapel... and the lunch room and gift shop were tours in themselves! The Village of Cong was sweet, but not much open the day we were there, and the Friary was stupendous - I could have spent half a day there, but it was pouring down rain by the time we got there. Tour guide had brilliant wisdom to offer - both on history and Irish points of view. I would go again.
The driver was so interesting to listen to. I have been on many Viator tours. This tours talked great deal about the history of the area. Loved that. I thought Kylemore Abbey was nice, but there was only 4 rooms open. So know the tour really is about the country side.
If you want to see Connemara, DO THIS TOUR. In addition to the regular stops, we were taken down back roads that no other tour takes, and got to see beautiful scenery and truly experience the vastness of the Connemara region. The time spent at Kylemore was perfect, and we were treated to the regular stops at the fjord, the glacier lake and more. The friary was a nice treat to end the day. Galway Tours is a fantastic company, and you want to take this version!
Good tour to give you a sample of Irish countryside. Tour of abbey was interesting and enjoyable. Our tour guide / driver was funny and
Very enjoyable...what a delight !

A really exquisite way to see Connemara. A small bus took us through the winding roads and hills of Connemara with many stops to view the scenery. I have truly never seen something this beautiful in all my travels. Kylemore Abbey was lovely. The walled gardens are not to be missed. There is a tea room at the walled gardens that had a lovely view. If it is open I would recommend skipping the cafeteria at the entrance, head straight to the bus to the walled gardens and it will drop you off at the tea room where you should have lunch before you explore the gardens. It looked to have most of the same food as the cafeteria but less crowded and with much better views!
