Can you see Kylemore Abbey from the Road?

A friend and I are planning a trip to Ireland in September. We're going to visit Connemara National Park and spend a night in Letterfrack. We think Kylemore Abbey looks lovely, but we're not really interested in seeing the interior of the house. Is it possible to see it from the road if we were to drive by it?

You can see it quite well from the parking lot; there is a restaurant and gift shop there too.

You can get a couple of great photos across the lake to the house from the roadside.

There's a break in the scrub along the lake beside the road coming from Letterfrack. And if I remember correctly there's also a place to park a car there. Beautiful view of the Abbey with reflections on the lake. Coming from Letterfrack that day you might not be interested in having food but the café is quite good and the gift shop has lovely things if you're looking for presents.

FYI--you can park in the car park and access the gift shop and cafe without paying for entrance to the Abbey. Enjoy!

You can see Kylemore from the road but not the Victorian Gardens which are well worth the stop. There is a lot more to see than the inside of the Abbey.
