Beautiful walk through the woods up a very well maintained gravel pathway to the first of two beautiful gate houses - then you walk a little further and not only do you discover the most romantic gothic style architectural second gate house but a pretty little waterfall that just adds to the magic. Well worth a visit

Take your time walk through the whole park and see the gate house and the two towers, the waterfall and the size of the trees. Also there is the slaves passage which is a bit of a tunnel that runs under the roadway. it was fantastic. we thoroughly enjoyed it!

Still lots in flower and lovely. We only heard about the... More

I was taken here by a local gentleman, who knew his way around. When he led me up the path and showed me the towers I was in awe, it was very impressive. He then took me to see the waterfall, along a damp and slippy path (wear old shoes) , to top off a wonderful evening, this trip then... More

When I take a first visitor to the Towers, I cover their eyes and a certain point, navigate them under the "tunnel", and watch them go....Wow!!!

Difficult to find this place - had to get directions and map from Tourist office - buy worth it, was a nice walk and did not expect what we found there. Great way for kids to run off energy!

Lovely stroll through historic woodland. Steeped in history. A great way to build up an appetitive before tea and cakes in the Summer house.

Would fully recommend this for a lovely afternoon fun for all the family. Walk around is relatively short, maybe 30 mins if it was just adults but with... More

One of the must do (short) walks near Lismore, Co Waterford. This is a great wee walk that adults and children can enjoy. It runs anti-clockwise around a woodlands park that was to be the grand entrée to a 'Big House' that ran out of money because of the 'follies' of the gatehouses that now provide the jaw-drop experience of...
