Minibuses carry visitors from furtherst car parking which is very helpful.Gardens are more than beautiful -natural, and organized. Like to see more of old house made available. Restaurant food good but slightly expensive, as are refreshments.

A must see . Absolutely no expense spared . I wish a little more of the house was open as there are so many people going through apparently parts close for cleaning. But definitely a must see. The temple is only open Sundays 12 till 4

Brilliant day at MountStewart "Conversations" on Saturday. Long time since we have enjoyed an event as much. The gardens were glorious - We wandered for several hours in the sunshine and then enjoyed the music in the Cortyard as we ate our "street food". .In the afternoon we listened to Fintan O'Toole and Jonathan Powell talk with such clarity about...

Just had multi million pound refurb, see this beautiful imposing house with the N.T. and walks around its lake. A great day out for all the family from the oldest to the eldest.Watch out for special events like jazz in the park and festival of lights. We have a family year ticket which means we can visit any N.T. property... More

We visited without expectations and were blown away by the gardens which are very special. A combination of the artistic talents of Edith, (7th Marchioness of Londonderry) and professional input from Lutyens and Jekyll (2 favourites of mine) it is truly inspiring and beautiful. The house was also a revelation giving a very different view of Castlereagh from that created... More

A view of yesteryear in what must be one of the Nations true treasures . A diamond in the crown of the National Trust and Northern Irelands more classic and amazing visits. The Gardens are beyond telling and must be visited, the air carries on it the salted ozone from nearby Strangford Lough and the Guides are so cleverly informed... More

Despite a dull and damp September day we visited this NT property and having been restored, the rooms on view look wonderful. The entrance hall is imposing and the family rooms are all very comfortably furnished with original furniture from the house. Outside there is a wealth of opportunity to walk, both around the lake and through the woods, and... More

A rather cluttered interior, the mature gardens are nice. More work is needed and the national trust are working on it, they are nice and friendly caretakers. The Stewarts held title from Derry, and there is an array of medals to peruse from the family warmongering across Europe. Typically of their breed the lavish spending and house expanding, is a...
