It has been said and it is a truism, that all the highways of Connacht are beckoning the sightseer to Connemara. With equal claim to veracity it may be affirmed that all the roads of Connemara are leading the visitor to Kylemore.

This souvineer of their tour is intended to interpret for our friends from overseas the scenic and historic setting of the far-famed Abbey, and its present day significance as a religious and cultural outpost in Western Ireland.

The Kylemore Abbey Cookbook

Kylemore Abbey, a magnificent turreted castle set in the lush Connemara hills overlooking a lake, is one of Ireland's top tourist attractions, with over 100,000 visitors every year. The Benedictine Nuns took over the Abbey in 1920, and since then have built up a fine tradition of hospitality, with wonderful produce from their farm and with delicious, wholesome food in their kitchen. This is a collection of the best of these recipies, old and new. It tries to show something of the changing face of food, reflecting today's food style. There is honeyed trout, Micaelmas goose with potato stuffing, mussel risotto, gooseberries poached in elderflower juice, and the aptley named Resurrection pudding and Sunday fruit cake.

John O'Tool & Marguerite Foyle

The sisters of Kylemore Abbey are a hardy group of nuns who handle tens of thousands of eager visitors to their home in the heart of Connemara. The nuns are famous for their Benedictine welcome and for their food in the abbey restaurant and tea rooms. They even make their own chocolate. Kylemore has recently announced a partnership with Notre Dame University and this has served to put it on the American map: this cookbook is aimed at both Irish and American markets.
