Welcome to Kylemore Abbey and Victorian Walled Garden, one of Ireland’s best-loved and most iconic tourist attractions and home to the Benedictine nuns since 1920.
Please note that the Kylemore Estate will be closed this Monday the 9th of December of essential maintenance. We will be open for business as usual from Tuesday morning at 9.30 am. Don’t forget to join us this weekend for music in the neo-Gothic Church, Christmas History Tours, Story Telling and Sunday Carvery Lunch. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure.
Visit the Abbey with its beautifully restored period rooms and fascinating Visitor Experience and learn about its history of tragedy, romance, education, and spirituality. Explore the 6-acre Victorian Walled Garden with its delightfully restored garden buildings, formal flower, vegetable and herb gardens. Discover woodland and lakeshore walks that will take you on a beautiful journey through our 1,000-acre estate. The beautiful neo-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, playing in our wild play area and meeting our pigs and Connemara ponies. With great options for dining and shopping, we have all you need for the perfect Connemara day out.
