Called here having read about it in tourist guide. Mentioned a tea room. However tea room did not open this year. The sight is large with formal and kitchen gardens and many big trees. Interesting hidden garden features such as grotto and dovecote. Would suit picnics. Worth a look.

We brought our 3 children and little dog with us to Woodstock Gardens. Naively, we parked our car in the beautiful little village of Inistioge (where the movie 'Circle of Friends' was filmed!) and walked up! Boy was it steep and a long way up! The views were amazing as we walked up though. The gardens themselves are beautiful, lots... More

One can drive all the way in and pay £4 in the carpark or you could drive half-way, pull in the car and walk the rest. It is well worth the effort, we walked all the way from the gates. There is a ruin of an old house with a beautiful terrace, there are many magnificent trees, a walled garden... More

Lovely, quiet and out of the way. The walk to the gardens is well worth the effort. The River Nore makes for a great start to a fairly vigorous effort to acommplish

OK. I shouldn't compare it to Powerscourt, but having seen it a day earlier, it was hard to be impressed with Woodstock. There is nothing but a shell of the original house. Several of the beds are cared for. Some are not. June may not be the best time to visit. The rhododendrons nor the roses were blooming. Getting to... More

Located near Inistioge off R700. They are continuing to restore what was once a vast conifer collection and walled perrenial, fruit, and vegetable garden. If you are looking for a peaceful walk and have botanical interest, then €4 per car is not bad.

This was a lovely garden to visit, even in the rain! It has interesting plants and shrubs. Would love to come again one day.

I love walking through the gardens here at any time of year especially the monkey puzzle walk. Make sure however you have €4 in coin with you as that is the charge per car and you have to pay at the barrier on the way out. I nearly had to over night there the last time I was there!! There... More
