Kylemore Abbey

Yesterday the girls and I went to Kylemore Abbey. The Abbey once belonged to the Duke of Cambridge, but after his wife died the Abbey changed hands. It was once a boarding school, and is now a residence for nuns.

I had fun imagining an elaborate family like the Crawleys from Downton Abbey operating in the house. It was very secluded and elaborate.

I wish we could have seen the upstairs. Can you imagine what the bedrooms must look like in a place like this?

We also saw the Victorian Gardens that were on the property. I’m sure they are beautiful when the weather is much better. [It hailed just before we got off of the bus].

I really loved the teal accents around the garden. The color complimented the green landscape very well.
