Photographer's Note

Kylemore Abbey, set in the Connemara mountains is a beautiful neo-Gothic Castle. Built by the English industrialist Mitchell Henry in 1868, Kylemore Castle was sold to Benedictine nuns fleeing war-torn Belgium in 1920 and the Castle became an Abbey. It's now also a girls boarding school. It's striking in Connemara beacause the area is surrounded by trees, a rarity in the area which is known for its start, windswept nature.
