Greenough Things to Do: 59 reviews and 106 photos


In 1901 they moved to Dongara and the Presentation Sisters took over the building. They turned the school room into a dormitory and ran a boarding school for boys. There were extensions built on the west side which are no longer there. When the boarding school closed down, the old convent was then leased as a residence to the O?Brien family. They lived in the building until it was purchased by the National Trust.

Address: The Convent, Historical Settlement, Greenough
