Built as a final resting place for Kylemore's owner's young wife who died suddenly during their travels, this quaint chapel is serene and lovely with beautiful wood detail inside. You'll see it as a part of the walking paths at Kylemore Abbey.

The church is breath taking. The roof was repair to original state in 2008 and is beautiful. There is much history of this church and is a must visit site.

Pretty chapel and worth the walk if you are already here. The history of the preservation is also very interesting.

Very small and basic, it does install a sense of peace, quiet and, indeed, also reflects the sufferings of this area - famine, poverty, wars and strife down the ages.

We visited this chapel while touring the abbey. While small, it is worth the extra walk if you are already in the grounds of the abbey.

While visiting the Abbey we walked to the chapel. It is a beautiful serene sanctuary. The architecture of the building is amazing.

A bonus on your visit to the Abbey. A lovely stroll past the Abbey brings you to the church with its contemporary little graveyard. A place to stop and take a few minutes to remember friends and family, say a prayer and light a candle....More

This a beautiful stroll along the lake from the Abbey itself. Its a really special place and I was able to light a candle for my mother in this little cathedral. What a gem!

Would not go to kylemore to visit just the chapel. But it was a nice visit that allowed us to have a pleasant spiritual moment on a busy vacation.

When visiting the Kylemore Abbey & Victorian Gardens make sure you take in the Gothic Chapel. It is only a short walk from the Abbey itself, and is nestled in a very serene and peaceful lakeside location. The outside is an excellent example of classic...More
