Lovely place to visit

Great spot for lovely walks in the woods. Super birdsong and spotted some red squirrels. Tip: have €4 in coins for the exit barrier

It took me some time to find the gardens but it sure was well worth the time and the trouble. I could easily have spent a lot more time there and I doubt if I discovered more than a small portion of the grounds. Cafe not open when I was there so maybe better to bring a picnic. Very well... More

We live near Woodstock and what a marvellous facility we have on our doorstep. Whether it is a short walk round the Monkey Puzzle and Noble Fir walk taking time to check on the roses garden in mid-summer or a winter hike down the Poyntz Rd and back to the village via the gardens it is a winner. Best of... More

Went here last minute on a photoshoot and the place is beautiful. It's so peaceful to walk around the grounds and discover the history from the information boards. If you like nature then definitely come here. It only cost €6 per car.

We were there on a beautiful day which provided us with an ideal chance to saunter through the woods with its impressive tall trees and especially along the avenue of monkey puzzle trees. We were in April and possibly too early in the season to witness the beauty of the walled gardens which we hoped would be filled and flourishing... More

The car park has a 4€ price to enter and risk clamping if you park outside! However, the walk up from the village of Inistioge is very nice and not too far. You can walk up the road about a klometre and a half, or up a path by the river (but you risk getting lost like we did). If... More

I hadn't even heard of this place before but our B&B owner recommended it as something to do before our drive home as it was only a few miles away. Entry is well worth the €4 fee (payable on exit via coin-only machine). We were studying the map on the board at the entrance when the caretaker arrived up on... More
