Kylemore Abbey Robin Sugar Bowl
The Kylemore Robin has been a prominent character on the estate for many years. Whether bobbing between the tables outside the café or singing from the treetops as visitors around the corner get the magnificent full view of Kylemore Abbey, this charismatic little bird as well as charming everyone who sees him holds a deeper symbolism for those of faith.
🐦The Robin has long been associated with Christianity as a bird who while sympathetically plucking a thorn from the crown of thorns placed on Jesus’ head during the crucifixion pierced its own chest, giving it its signature colouring.
🐦The Robin has, as many children could tell you, the reputation for being a messenger. From those gone before us, from Santa Claus, and is a bringer of Spring and a bearer of hope.
The Kylemore Robin proudly sits in a favourite location in the Character of Kylemore collection. Taking his place in front of the Abbey, sweetly singing for all who pass.
