Galway and Kylemore Abbey (from Limerick)

We have limited time in Ireland, and there is so much to see. I was wondering if it's possible to drive from Limerick (technically Adare) to see Galway and Kylemore Abbey and then back again in one day. Thanks in advance for your help!

ViaMichelin shows the drive from Adare to Galway as 1h44m. Adjusting for Irish driving times, that makes it about 2h10m. Then the drive from Galway to Kylemore Abbey is another 1h30m (adjusted time almost 2 hours). Walking around at Kylemore, seeing the chapel, etc., will take at least an hour. So you are looking at over 8 hours of driving time, 1 hour of Kylemore, and then whatever sightseeing time in Galway (including finding a place to park). Short answer - sorry, no.
