Along the long long westerly drive from Galway to Cliftden, you will find Kylemore Abbey. A stunning residence for Nuns. I once remember a very funny event where my mother was talking to a Nun. And after reading the rules for being a nun, my mother said you do not seem to mind talking. The Nun was surprised by this and said yes. My mother asked her about the rules of silence and the nun said, never knew that!! It is a stunning area to visit, plenty of ample parking a lovely cafe and peace and tranquility.
