If you like trees, this is the place. Majestic tall specimens sympathetically cared for without being too formal. The place was deserted when we were there and it gave the place a lovely peaceful feel.

However, we were extremely disappointed with the tea room as it looks a wow factor when in fact the cakes are tasteless and disappointing. Another thing from a dog owners prospective is as... More

This must have been a wonderful place in the past and it's impressive the different kinds of trees they have there. I know now it's autumn here in Ireland but the whole thing seemed a bit abandoned; there were many people walking around there, but absolutely no employees or guides or whoever could help if somebody had some question or...

We were staying at the Boat House (riverside B&B) just a short walk away and decided to have a couple of hours out at the gardens. The tea rooms were closed but we really enjoyed our visit. There are some wonderful trees, many of them are hundreds of years old. There is a play area for children and plenty of... More
