And, it was all FREE!!! i would... More

We were lucky to get a beautiful sunny day to enjoy the amazing scenery here. Some fantastic walks exploring the grounds and trying to figure out how to transport the fab beds to our garden! €2 car park fee is too little in my opinion and would fully expect at least a €5 entry fee which I would not have...

Lovely gardens with good walks showing the mountains and surrounding countryside. There is no charge apart from a €2.00 car parking fee, which seemed extremely reasonable to me. You can also wander around the walled garden and have a coffee in the tea room there. I can imagine this place is even more beautiful in the sunshine, I would personally... More

I have been to a good few gardens in Ireland as I like visiting them and taking photographs and enjoying the scenery. However we came across these gardens in May as we were looking for somewhere to go on a sunny Saturday and when we arrived we went in via the walled garden. It was not the best opening to... More

Fabolous gardens, a brilliant way to spend your afternoon walking around exploring the gardens or sitting by the man made lake!

This House and Gardens is well signposted, we found it easily unlike so many other places in this County. pity the House is being let go, it look like it is of a manageable size. The peacock must be a relic of auld decency. Gardens are amazing, so serene helped by the lake. Specimen tress are gorgeous, walled garden interesting... More
