Between the wild ruggedness of Connemara woodland and the power and intensity of the Atlantic Ocean in the West of Ireland, lies the enchanting Kylemore Abbey and Victorian Walled Garden. Owned and run by the Benedictine community who have been in residence here since 1920, Kylemore Abbey is one of Ireland s best loved and most iconic visitor attractions. The Benedictine nuns are renowned for their delicious home-baking and wholesome food in the Abbey restaurant and tea rooms. The nuns now also make and sell their own chocolate. As well as offering a range of Kylemore s unique recipes, this book gives an exclusive glimpse into one of Ireland s most intriguing estates, beautifully documented by award-winning photographer Valerie O Sullivan.
