Kylemore Abbey is the perfect destination for family days out. A magical 1,000-acre estate of woodland walks and a secret Walled Garden awaits your discovery. Children will love to discover our historic buildings and the people who over the years have become part of Kylemore's story. A millionaire, a Duke, Indian princesses and schoolgirls from all over the world are all fascinating to learn about. Kids can become a History Hunter,
get a history hunter map and explore the estate answering questions and finding secrets as you go. Little ones will enjoy cooking up some fairy stews and playing in our Wild Play area close to the Garden Tea House and don't forget to drop by and see our gorgeous Kune Kune pigs, Gloria and Ken, and the adorable Connemara ponies and foals frolicking in the pony paddock.
Make your wish at the Ironing Stone and take a peek through the windows of our Chocolate Kitchen!
There are plenty of pocket money priced gifts to pick up in our Craft and Design shop and an ice-cream or hot chocolate in our Café or Tea House would go down very well. A small play area in Mitchell's Café gives Mum and Dad time to take a breather with toys, colouring and storybooks to keep little ones amused. Fresh air, history, and discovery make lots of fun for everyone.
