Alumnae of Kylemore Abbey School

(1923 – 2010)

Alumnae of Kylemore Abbey School

The renowned Kylemore Abbey School (Scoil Aine) is central to the story of Kylemore Abbey.  From 1923 to 2010 the School was home to generations of girls who have forged a special bond with Connemara and the Benedictine Nuns of Kylemore Abbey. Today hundreds of women around the world fondly remember their time as ‘K’ girls in the magical location of Kylemore Abbey.

Alumnae Guest Pass

Celebrating this special bond, all alumnae are entitled to visit their alma mater free as guests of Kylemore Trust, by applying for an Alumna Guest Pass.  To do this, please email:

Alumnae Reunion 2022

In light of the continuing global Covid-19 pandemic and Irish Government public health restrictions, the planned reunion of Kylemore Abbey School past pupils (postponed from 2020) will not take place this year – and has been re-scheduled to 10-12 June 2022.
Kylemore Abbey is closed for the foreseeable future and cannot plan for large gatherings in the coming months. Along with past pupils in Ireland and all over the world, Kylemore’s Benedictine community regrets this further postponement of the event – sharing their disappointment with volunteer organisers who had worked so hard, in particular Sharon Molloy.
Later this year, an online reunion for past pupils of Kylemore is planned. This will include a special online Mass for alumnae and a virtual programme of talks, tours, and events of interest to past pupils of the School (details to follow).
The Benedictine nuns, along with staff and alumnae organisers, are committed to ensuring that our reunion will go ahead in a safe, happy, and enjoyable way, free from the shadow of the pandemic and the pain which it has brought to so many friends, alumnae and staff.
The prayers of the Benedictine community are offered daily for those affected by Covid-19 – especially the alumnae and staff of Kylemore Abbey. For those who wish, you can join our daily Mass via webcam.
