Dear Visitors, we have decided because of the high winds at Kylemore today that it would be safer for our Visitor Centre (Abbey, gothic Church and Walled Garden) to remain closed until 11am. By this time we hope the winds will have calmed down and we can assess the situation again. our estate has many beautiufl but old trees and the site is in a very windy valley so we need to take extra precautions for your safety in times of extreme weather. Please be aware of strong gusts and falling debris when out and about today. We have reports of some trees downa nd there are a lot of branches on the roads. We will updatet his post as soon as we know more. If you are coming to Kylemore, our Cafe adn Shop are open as usual so you can take shelter from the storm in there!
