A couple of weeks ago I posted a blog called ‘If these walls could talk’. This blog is an update. Myself and Sarah from Derelict Nation went back to have another look. There is a history about this place on Ben Bulben’s flickr page. It was a convent at one time and in more recent years a nursing home, it’s called Lough Glynn in Co. Roscommon.
I can’t begin to tell you how I felt when I saw this place, there were so many emotions. It’s a beautiful building and there were plans to turn it into a hotel which I think would be wonderful, sadly though these plans were 10 years ago and it’s been left since then. I suppose like many properties the boom finished and dreams are shattered.
There are many outbuildings including cottages, farm buildings and what looks like an old schoolhouse. The house is located right beside a lake, the grounds are blooming with flowers and blue damselflies dart around them.
