Connemara National Park

The present abbey and home of the Benedictine nuns, was initially built as a castle. This was intended to be the "love nest" of Margaret y Mitchell Henry, a leading ophthalmologist at that time. The couple took refuge here from pollution in London during the industrial era. But only for a few years because Margaret died in 1984, a few years after the completion of the work, during a trip to Egypt.
