Kylemore Abbey Lake and Fishing Boat View Print 8″ X 10″
The castle at Kylemore was built by Mitchell Henry in 1871 as a romantic gift for his wife, Margaret.
In 1874, Mitchell and his beloved wife Margaret holidayed in Egypt – an exotic and popular destination in Victorian times. Sadly, tragedy struck on the River Nile. Margaret contracted dysentery and died sixteen days later. She was beautiful, 45 years old and a mother of nine.
“It is not our mistress we have lost, but our mother” said one tenant as the distraught Mitchell had Margaret’s body embalmed and brought back to Connemara so that she could be laid to rest at her beloved Kylemore. He could not bear the thought of having her lie in the cold ground of a foreign country.
This high quality print captures the exterior beauty of the Abbey & Lake in Spring Time.
