Once upon a time in Connemara, County Galway, a love blossomed so strongly that it will never be forgotten. In the mid-19th century, newlyweds Mitchell and Margaret Henry came upon Kylemore with its delightful lake and woods, and remarked how it would be idyllic place to live. Just a few years later, Mitchell made Margaret’s dreams come true and Kylemore Abbey was built to house the couple’s ever-growing family. Tragically, it was also to be Margaret’s final resting place as she contracted a fever just a few years after the castle was completed and sadly passed away.

Derryinver Bridge & the unspoiled landscape of Connemara.
Tragically Geraldine Gilbert Henry lost her life in this river as she was traveling by pony and trap. The pony took fright and the trap overturned launching poor Geraldine into the powerful Derryinver river. Fortunately enough her child Elizabeth and the Nanny landed on the bank of the river. She was the eldest daughter of Mitchell Henry whom was the owner of the famous Kylemore Abbey at the time, in which he sold two years later due to a serious of unfortunate events.
