Event description
KYLEMORE ABBEY TOURISM ENHANCEMENT PROJECT

About this Event

From Generation to generation... the story of Kylemore Abbey.

Kylemore Abbey, on the edge of Pollacappul Lough, has undergone several adaptions over the course of its romantic and sometimes tragic existence: from the adaptation of Kylemore Lodge to a castle by Mitchell Henry in 1867, as an elaborate love token for his wife Margaret, to its conversion to a Benedictine Monastery in 1920, its use as a school from 1923 to 2010 and in more recent times its opening up to the public as a culturally signi cant tourist attraction.

Much of the West wing of the abbey was destroyed by re in 1959 – Axo Architects most recent project redirects visitors through the forgotten rear entrance court and has reinterpreted that west side of the abbey to extend and enhance the visitors’ experience of this internationally acclaimed building and landscape.

Pre-Book only via www.architectureattheedge.com
