Kylemore Abbey & Victorian Walled Garden


Set amongst the dramatic Connemara mountains, the 6-acre Victorian walled garden is divided into two distinct areas – the formal floral garden and kitchen garden where uniquely only Victorian varieties of vegetables and flowers are grown. Enjoy woodland and lakeshore walks, restored rooms of the abbey, gothic church, head gardener’s house and much more on the 1000 acre estate.  Discover what makes Kylemore Abbey & Victorian Walled Garden the no.1 visitor attraction in the west
