  • Very poorly maintained. Cafe was closed. Visitor centre was closed. Really glad we didn't pay any entrance costs as we left within 30 mins  more »
  • I went for a walk in the arboretum on a weekday morning during the late summer. It was very quiet, with plenty of plants, shrubs, and trees to admire.  more »
  • Return visit after nearly 50 years! And well worth a visit. The Arboretum has matured into a wonderful parkland filled with mature trees planted in groups that are botanically related and aestheticall...  more »

  • I visited recently to scout locations for a wedding shoot and was blown away by this place! It was a really bad day when I visited but walking around the whole park I got a great sense of relaxation as it was so peaceful here. There are lovely little trails running through the park and some amazing scenery to be found! Looking forward to heading back there soon...
  • Wonderful spot for a stroll in a parkland and kids to explore. There's a free orienteering course too, just download the maps from the OPW website and print before. Great for the kids to add some interest to their walk! CafĂ© not always open, so check beforehand and bring a picnic if needed as it's quite a distance to the nearest shop.
  • Enormous garden park, be prepared for plenty of walking as this place is pretty big. There are horse & cart jobs to ferry you around for a fee if you don't feel like walking. We went for the miniature railway which is a fair walk from the car-park & play ground area. Can be queues too. Train is a little two-stroke affair which the kids will get a kick out of. Bit of a derailment when we had a go so we got a longer ride than normal. Playground area has equipment for most ages and there's a coffee shop close by to get your liquid sanity.
  • Amazing open Park/Space, for a walk or a picnic. Lots of different species of flowers and trees.
  • Lovely gardens with a lake. Near the J F Kennedy homestead. Lots of tree lined walks. Wooded areas and walk ways. Nice play area for children. Tea room with a few gifts and ice cream to buy. toilet is adequate. Parking area . During summer months there's a horse and cart ride and a miniature train which was great.lots to see and do. Can bring a picnic if the weather's nice. All in all a good day out.
