Description

The world-famous Kylemore Abbey, dramatically located in a magnificent former castle on the shores of Kylemore Lough in Connemara, has been home to a branch of Benedictine nuns that fled Belgium during World War I. Bombed out of Ypres, where they had been based for hundreds of years, the nuns were rescued by the Royal Munster Fusiliers before eventually finding their new home in Kylemore in 1920.
