You may have heard or read about new developments at Kylemore Abbey recently.

 

We wish to update you as a valuable client. It is planned to partner with Notre Dame University, Indiana (USA), in the provision of a new education centre at Kylemore Abbey. The facility, for up to 50 students, will occupy part of the old girls boarding school (vacant since 2012) and part of community accommodation.

 

This development will not impact on the visitor experience at Kylemore Abbey & Garden; in fact our association with Notre Dame University will be complementary.

 

We also have plans to improve the visitor’s experience at Kylemore, including the Abbey visit, woodland/lakeside walks, Victorian garden and catering/retail facilities.

 

Most importantly, we plan to build a New Monastery for the Community adjoining the Benedictine Church; this is a statement about the continued presence of the Benedictine Community at Kylemore.


Updated plans and progress will be unveiled in the interim period.
