Overview

Kylemore Abbey is the no.1 visitor attraction in the West of Ireland and a ‘must see’ visit for any tour of Ireland.  Set in the dramatic Connemara landscape of mountains and lakes, Kylemore is an iconic attraction, famous around the world. From its beginnings as a romantic gift in the 1860s to becoming home to the Benedictine Nuns in 1920, Kylemore is steeped in history and tales of tragedy, romance, royal visits, spirituality and education. The Benedictine community welcome visitors to experience the Victorian atmosphere of the restored rooms of the Abbey and gothic church; explore the magical Victorian Walled Garden, nature trails and woodland walks and much more.A complementary shuttle bus brings visitors from the Visitor Centre to the Garden and back every 15 minutes. There is a Self-Service Restaurant on site that can seat up to 260 people, and a Craft Shop where we stock a wide range of high quality Irish crafts and design products.
