We had no idea that this quite wonderful amenity / gardens was right in the middle of town... and free... at least this time of year. Very scenic, and stunningly beautiful. Warmly recommended.

We visited Westport House today and found it very interesting. The house is very relaxed and full of beautiful furniture and history. The grounds are well kept and well worth a visit.
