This 6 acre Victorian Walled Garden is one of the last walled gardens to be built during the Victorian period in Ireland and is the only Walled Garden constructed in bogland. The garden is divided in two by a natural mountain stream. The eastern half is the flower or pleasure garden. The western side of the stream is the kitchen garden.
In 1996, the Benedictine Community began restoration works. Two of the Victorian glasshouses have been rebuilt along with the Head Gardener’s House and the Workmen’s Bothy.
Kylemore Abbey Victorian Walled Garden was re-opened to visitors in 1999 and won the Europa Nostra Award in 2002.
