What people are saying about Kylemore Abbey

Our guides were excellent Brian and Paddy. They were very informative. I learned so much about the Irish History. Pro's: Pro's great way to see most of the country and learn about the history from a professional. Everything was included as far as tickets, hotels and breakfast. I enjoyed being with other travelers and we made lasting friendships. Cons: We are on a schedule and so could not spend as much time as we wanted at some of the sights and venues. Lunch place was always predetermined so you were stuck going only to their choice. Most places were pretty good by average cost of the meals were 40-50 Euros per couple. It would have been nice to have a day off in the middle to rest a bit. Overall it was a great way to see the country for the first time.

very good, interesting guide

comfortable combination of transport (train+bus), reliable organisation, exhaustive information, very interesting, poetic guide, wish to have more time for the cliffs. Galway is very good choice to stay and for the overnight, nice hotel Victoria. On the other hand - the tour was not cheap.

It was great. We thank Brian who was our Guide the first 3 days, in a very good mood and very interesting. this excursion really allowed you to discover all of Ireland
