A recent £6m restoration project which received generous support from Heritage Lottery Fund has now preserved this historic site for generations to come. The Gardens are a unique living museum, with layer upon layer of design features and planting added over the centuries. Indeed, rarely is so much history preserved on one site. The many exceptional features include the ancient Motte, the Large Parterre, the Yew Tree Pond and the Pleasure Gardens. « less

There was only a few places I couldn't take my chair, and most of the time there was alternative routes. Absolutely breathtaking! I would go again and again if I lived in the area!

Fabulous destination for a day out, walk or recreation. Free entry and car parking. Everywhere we walked was very well looked after. We walked from a car park along to Lough Neigh following the signs; there is a pleasant café by the marina. We also enjoyed the exercise machines as we walked along. The only negative is how little you... More

This facility is within a few minutes walk of Antrim town centre and within a short time one reaches the shores of Lough Neagh. The gardens have been recently extensively renovated, featuring clean well maintained grass areas with several winding paths into the wooded areas and a walk along the river side to the lough shore where there is a...

We went with the children, and we all loved it. Beautiful gardens, so many really intriguing and unique trees and plans. It was a little quiet when we went, so we had a sense of discovery and curiosity as we walked around to see what was around the next corner. Many of the reviewers were from the UK, and so... More

Living in such a historic town as Antrim is, over the years I hoped that with so much history in and around the town would be highlighted more, from the motte and bailey in Rathenraw which still has part of the orginal wall of the castle which can be tracked through the stiles estate, evidently Rath-en-raw means Rath=motte en=on raw=river,...

We've visited twice with our family of four children 9,8,3 & 1. We were fortunate to get good weather on both occasions but even in the rain this place would be great. The formal gardens are of the standard you see in a Chateau in France. The walks are beautiful and varied. The facilities are modern and clean. Our children... More
