    Kylemore Abbey is famous for its postcard perfect scenery, the iconic image of a baronial castle reflected in a Connemara lake. The Benedictine nuns of Kylemore invite visitors to experience this magnificent place. From the love story that started it all, to engineering initiatives, model farms, royal visits, and the Abbey’s former role as a girls boarding school, learn about Kylemore’s rich history.

    Visitors can choose one of the woodland or lake shore walks and meander through the stunning walled garden while the restored Head Gardener’s house and the Garden Bothy house allow for a glimpse into the Victorian era.

    Afterwards drop by Mitchell’s Café or the Tea House to relax and enjoy some Irish home cooked food made from the recipes of the Benedictine nuns.

    Before continuing your chauffeur drive tour of Connemara make sure to allow time to check out the craft shop to pick up some wonderful handmade products from Kylemore Abbey including pottery and mouthwatering chocolates.

    Dubbed a place of “savage beauty” by Oscar Wilde, the striking region of Connemara has been a landmark destination for visitors looking to experience the authentic scenic landscapes of Ireland.
