A(mazing) place to visit?

Although for £12 a family ticket seems a little pricey it wasn't by so much that you walk away grumbling. We visited the maze first - and again last - and that was clearly the... read more

A real gem of a garden. Real thought had been taken. The garden staff were very chatty and helpful. Cafe excellent.

We stayed in Portpatrick and I actually used the Woodland Walk on most days for my daily run. We decided to visit the gardens given that they were within walking distance and we could cut through from the village, via the Woodland Walk to the gardens. The gardens themselves are very attractive and we were lucky enough to visit on... More

Although for £12 a family ticket seems a little pricey it wasn't by so much that you walk away grumbling. We visited the maze first - and again last - and that was clearly the kids favourite thing, and something that will be retold again and again while we think back over the holiday. Not massive, but good fun. you... More

Visted Dunskey gardens for lunch numerous times over the years and inevitably end up walking the path through the small estate. When you consider that you can walk round this place in about 30 minutes, the entry fee of £5;50 per adult is a bit steep. Having visited many other private gardens over the years, I think the owners need... More

The walled garden is peaceful but the maze is fun! It's hard to get to the middle and back out again but if kids can do it they get a little prize. This is a small attraction but well maintained and close to everything in the area.

We walked through the Dunskey Glens a couple of times during our stay in Portpatrick and what a beautiful place it is! The bluebells were stunning, we saw deer and it was just such a peaceful and beautiful place to walk through. It leads up from the beach or you can walk from Portpatrick through the glen, down to the... More
