Kylemore Abbey & Victorian Walled Gardens is the biggest attraction in the West of Ireland. The Abbey, an extraordinary example of Victorian architecture, was built on the shores of a lake in the heart of the 1,500 acre estate.
There is a complimentary shuttle bus up to the six acre Victorian walled garden including a number of walks and trails and a spectacular mountain walk. The community of Benedictine nuns who arrived in 1920 offer visitors the opportunity to enjoy the peace and natural beauty of Kylemore. There is also a café, tea house and gift shop at Kylemore for visitors to enjoy.
