Kylmore Abbey, Ireland: 17 reviews and 30 photos
Kylemore Abbey looks like a medieval castle, but in fact it was built in 1826 for Mitchell Henry, a rich merchant from Manchester. In WW I benedictinian nuns from Belgium came there and transfered the castle into a boarding school for agriculture.
You will be able to park your car directely there and have a little stroll in the park in order to get a good place, where to take a picture and at certain times of the year you can obviously also see the building from inside. That was unfortunately not possible, when I had been there in 1990.
Address: Kylemore Abbey
Directions: Kylemore Abbey is just a few meters off the main road N59 leading from Clifden to Leenane and Westport. From Clifden you will have to drive about 1 hour to Kylemore Abbey.
