    You can take a shuttle bus or just walk to the gardens. They are worth to visit. Built by Mr. Henry, he used a latest top technology. The glasshouses were heated, etc. Benedictine nuns gave this garden back a second life.

    This church does not impress with its size or high naves but its details. Its is highly decorated but in a way that it does not feel overloaded. It's simply charming. Mr. Henry built it for the memory of his beloved wife. More detailed description on Abbeys website.

    Margaret Henry sadly died in Egypt, in 1874, just three years after the completion of the Castle. Her remains were brought back to Kylemore and laid to rest in the Mausoleum on the grounds.

    I went by bus to Kylemore Abbey. There´s some bus company, you can book your ticket on Galway Tourist office or on your hotel or youth hostel. The driver give you much information during the trip. I bought the ticket at Galway tourist office. The ticket to Kylemore cost 22 Euros plus 6.50 for the Kylemore Abbey. Many additional photo stops on the way.
