Looking for things to do in Ireland? Or what to see and do in Galway? Well in that case look no further and come visit us at Kylemore Abbey, one of the top tourist attractions in Ireland. The Abbey itself was known as Kylemore Castle until 1920 when the Benedictine order of nuns made it their home. The Abbey was home to the Kylemore Abbey Girl’s school as well until 2010.
At Kylemore Abbey and Victorian Walled Garden, there is so much for all the family to enjoy. Visit the restored rooms of the Abbey and learn about its history and tales of tragedy and romance. Explore the 6 acre Victorian Walled Garden with its magnificent restored buildings. Discover woodland walks, lakeshore walks, nature trails and children’s play trail throughout the 1,000 acre estate. The beautiful Gothic Church is a short walk from the Abbey, nestled nearby is the Mausoleum where Mitchell and Margaret Henry are buried side by side. Children will enjoy making a wish at the Giants Ironing stone.
Enjoy delicious home baking and home cooked food at Mitchell’s café or The Garden Tea House and finish your visit with a spot of shopping at our lovely Craft and design Shop.
