Parking problem
by Jamessheerin  8 Nov 2016
Please be advised that parking at Kylemore Abbey is now off limits. I was there last Sunday (Nov 6, 2016) with my club and we were informed that we "could not leave the grounds", we "couldn't park there and climb the nearby hills" and "we should park in Leenaun", 10 miles away! I believe the Abbey grounds are under new management and this is their way of a friendly reception. We, the club, have been parking there for over twenty years (taking up a very small part of a very large carpark)... and spending a sizable amount of money in the cafe afterwards. We have never abused the free parking there in any way. After we left last Sunday there were only three cars left in the carpark. And thirty less people to spend money in the coffee shop!
