Kylemore Abbey & Victorian Walled Gardens

 
 
Kylemore Abbey located in Beautiful scenery in the heart of the Twelve Bens in Connemara, is home to the Irish Benedictine nuns.
 
The Abbey was originally built in 1868 by Manchester business magnate Mitchell Henry for his wife Margaret. Its design is neo-gothic and the house displays all of the beautiful features of the period.
 
The Benedictine nuns bought the house in 1920, having fled their convent in Ypres, Belgium in 1914, where they ran an international boarding school for girls for over 300 years. They re-established the school in Kylemore which flourished for many years. While no longer functioning as a boading school Kylemore continues its endeavours in education throught its partnership with the Notre Dame in the USA.  
 
Today you can enjoy the 'peace and tranquility' of Kylemore Abbey by visiting the Abbey and Gothic Church or the magnificently restored Victorian walled garden. 
 
 
 
Kylemore Abbey is a 35 minute drive from Peacockes Hotel
