The Kylemore castle.

Ireland is loaded with castles and abbeys.
we where so happy we had  a guided  trip..cos then u dont miss a thing..Thumbs up for our guide.
One of the most beautiful castles is Kylemore. Every room is furnished. wow  those firceplaces…awesome.
The Story of Kylemore…Castle and Abbey – is a truly remarkable one. The twist of fate which its occupants experienced from moments of romance and happiness to sadness and courage have all combined to create a fascinating history spanning over 150 years.
 
The lake on the front side of the castle
 
Kylemore is home to a community of nuns of the Benedictine Order who came here in 1920 after their abbey in Ypres , Belgium  ( yes  Belgium MY Country lol) was destroyed in WW 1.Settling at Kylemore, the Benedictine Communicty opened a world renowned boarding school for girls and began retsoring the everything tot their former glory.
 
See this open fire.  Must have been very romantic in those days.

    HI Sweeti, looks like you’re having a wonderful holiday looking round the splendour of Ireland..and , yes, that boat looks very, very inviting…The garden looks fabulous. but imagine?…all that upkeep, all that back breaking work…best to let them do all the work and we just enjoy the view…Was there an ‘atmosphere’ to the inside of the Castle?.. the sheer age of it screams past adventures. So glad you’re enjoying the trip … Sweeti…and looking forward to more updates.. x LadyP x

I Bet He Is Still Out There Trimming The Hedges, Mowing The Lawns, Planting The Many Flowers And Wondering Where You Want The Swimming Pool? Have A Most Exciting Rest Of Evening Now My Great Friend..

    thanks for dropping by , Sweeti, I’ve seen a little of Ireland…, and my brother lives near Bunclody, Northern Ireland, that’s where he gets most of his marvellous photo’s from…the area round about him is teeming with flora and fauna alike… Trouble is he;s miles from anywhere, so visiting is a bit out of the question at the moment.. he loves it there though……Hope your holiday weather stays dry for you….and sunny too, of course..xLadyPx

    Wow MJ what a wonderful looking castle, i’m fascinated with castles, so massive and old and beautiful, they can be spooky too, probably due to the fact most are so very old.I love these pictures! Hugs, Nikki
