  • Thoughtfully arranged gardens, lovely display of vegetables! Lush orchards with chocked running about. This would be a lovely day out with children 
  • What an amazing spot, I'd know about it for a while but had never thought of visiting. The grounds are stunning, lovely walking by the ponds first thing in the morning with the ducks still sleeping. The grounds are surrounded by acres of farm land and beautiful mountains. It is a very worthwhile stop.
  • Can I give this a 6 star review? No? Ok fine. But it is well worthy of it and more - such a treat to visit everytime we go, which is a lot as we are members so we truly make the most of that and go most weekends when it is open. Relaxed, idillic, peaceful - never gets too busy in the grounds so there is plenty of freedom to roam or relax. The tea rooms can get swamped at times though, but well worth the wait - the food is phenomenal - all the offerings are made onsite and many of the ingredients are sourced from their working farm and herb gardens etc. The staff are great, we have gotten to know many of them and even the family who live there are friendly and get involved in the many events on there throughout the year. Could not recommend highly enough!
  • This place is fantastic and well worth a visit. The gardens date back to the17th century and remain fully intact since. The house is beautiful with a clock tower and orangery designed to mimic the roof structure of London's legendary Crystal Palace. A couple times a year the gardens are host to the Hell 'n' Back adventure race which is also a fun day out and enjoys breathtaking views over Dublin Bay. Five stars well deserved - I made a video about our visit which I posted on my YouTube channel gavinjgallagher.
  • Good place for the children to run around. Annual membership is great value too.
  • I loved this house and gardens, It caters for all, even wedding parties. What i also liked was their small little country shop ,it was not over whelming with products, 'just some homemade jams,chutneys, small and large bottles of homemade juices, small homemade choc lollipops and very few wildlife and flower books. The farmers shop opens on every Saturday. The only reason I gave it 3 stars and not 4 is they are revamping different areas but I'm sure it will be lovely when completed.
