Kylemore Abbey and Victorian Walled Garden


Kylemore Abbey and its Victorian Walled Garden is located just one hour from Galway and is one of Ireland’s top tourist attractions. Kylemore Castle was built in the late 1800s by Mitchell Henry MP, a wealthy businessman, and liberal politician.

Inspired by his love for his wife Margaret, and his hopes for his beloved Ireland, Henry created an estate boasting ‘all the innovations of the modern age’. An enlightened landlord and vocal advocate of the Irish people, Henry poured his life’s energy into creating an estate that would showcase what could be achieved in the remote wilds of Connemara.

Today Kylemore Abbey is owned and run by the Benedictine community who have been in residence here since 1920.
