Kylemore Abbey

Founded by Lady Mary Percy in 1598, this monastery has a long history stretching back almost three hundred and forty years. The purpose of Kylemore Abbey was to provide an education and religious community for Irish women during times of persecution in Ireland. This place was spectacular, with massive terraced garden rooms, one after the next, all lovingly maintained.
