Kylemore Abbey Tour Co Galway 

One of Ireland’s Most Visited Attractions

Explore the magnificent Castle,Gothic Church & walled gardens.

Kylemore has rightly made it to the list of top five visitor attractions in Ireland. Set in beautiful Connemara the Abbey occupies a magnificent location at the base of Mt Druchruach looking on to Pollacapall lake.

Kylemore has served many purposes since it was first built in 1868. The Castle was originally constructed by English Merchant Mitchel Henry as a wedding present for his wife Catherine!

In 1920 it became a Benedictine Monastery and international boarding School for girls.

Rooms in the Abbey have been painstakingly restored to look exactly like they did when the Henry family lived here. A visit to this 10,000 acre estate includes the impressive ‘Walled Gardens’, the beautifully restored ‘Gothic Church’ and ‘Mausoleum’ containing the remains of the Henry family.

Kylemore Abbey - Ireland

An ideal spot to shop and have lunch before we find Sister Genevieve making natural kylemore soap in her workshop. Next door other staff members make ‘Kylemore Abbey Artisan Chocolate’.

The nuns maintain a working farm, milking cows and keeping famous Connemara ponies. It is a wonderful full day visit and can be adjusted to a 2 day tour of Connemara.

Rebecca Tip: As a former student of Kylemore Abbey School this tour will be guided with all the insights of someone who lived there and we will meet with a member of the Benedictine order.
