Kylemore Abbey
Photographer:Watson, Hugh
Description:A photograph of Kylemore Abbey in Galway county. This is a large building that was once a castle, but is now home to a community of Benedictine nuns. The Benedictines moved here in 1920 after their abbey in Ypres, Belgium was destroyed during the First World War. The abbey is at the foot of Duchruach Mountain and at the edge of Kylemore Lake. The area around the castle is quite wooded. The photograph was taken around 1993.
