Conemara Trip

The rain does not stop us to enjoy Conemara. I just thought it would be lovelier maybe if it's sunny. The overcast and rainshowers gave us a different look but certainly the place is amazing. It's around 1 hour drive from the city center. Mists and dampness are definitely the elements that you're not looking for summer, and irish summer is, can be a little bit disappointing. However,that same natural elements made the countryside so green. If you're a lover of this stunning coastal sceneries, you'll definitely love the place. We stopped for a while to take a glimpse and have some photos of the place.

One of its attraction is the Kylemore Abbey. It is a Benedictine Monastery. The abbey was founded in 1920 by Benedictine nuns who fled Belgium in World war I. Originally it's Kylemore castle. Just like any castle it has a history of its own. What made me captivated is not its story but the place itself. I should say the photos speak for itself as well.
