Extensive gardens with many paths and different areas to explore. Atmospheric as some parts have an abandoned feel and it was not busy at all when we visited late one afternoon - lovely for an hour or two's walk.

The village of Inistioge is beautiful and the Woodstock Gardens, just outside the village are worth a visit. The old estate house is in ruins but the gardens remain. It's a lovely family day out. There are tea rooms on site which serve tea and...More
