The Tea House by the Walled Garden

The Tea House is located beside Kylemore Abbey’s 6 acre Victorian Walled Garden.

This is the go to spot for light lunches or a refreshing brew after your exploration of our woodland estate. This sunlit building is a delightful place to enjoy the best of home baking or a herbal tea made from herbs collected next door in the Walled Garden.

Children can colour and read story books while you relax and catch up on post card writing!

The views from the Tea House are spectacular with an uninterrupted panorama of the Connemara National Park. Outside the Tea House there are picnic benches for adults and miniature picnic tables for children and quirky play items for your children’s enjoyment.

Our Tea House was chosen by RTE television in 2015 as an example of ‘best practise’ for their popular series, ‘At Your Service’ with Francis Brennan. Don’t miss a visit to the Tea House as part of your special day out.

An entrance to the  Kylemore estate is required.
