  • A wonderful experience - the tour is full of detail about the families who have lived in the house, but unlike some houses, you do get to see a lot of the rooms. It is small, not on the same scale as more grand Irish country houses, but as a result it retains a more intimate feel. The grounds are also worth exploring, with formal gardens, to fruit plantations to more wild woodland. A great day out and worth a visit.
  • A beautiful house full of generations of little details. It's not as large as some of the other grand houses you can see in Ireland, but this one is quite special because it's still a lived-in family home. It's worth stopping and doing the tour if you're in the area on a day that it's open.
  • Fantastic house and gardens. Amazing and interesting contents
  • Unfortunately, I can't say what the actual house is like, as every time I have been to visit it has been closed! What I can say for certain is that there is a wonderful, wonderful forest path which is accessed right opposite the gates of the house. Cross over the wall opposite the house via a small sty which is to the right (with the house behind you), walk down the large field opposite the house for about 100 metres until you come to a very small, narrow bridge which cruises a stream and before you cross the bridge turn on the path to the right. The path then wanders beside a swampy area through trees, meandering back and forth and providing numerous activities for kids of all ages (ranging from a 5 year old boy to an 11 year old girl, all of whom found various branches, roots, ropes etc. to keep themselves amused, and lots of photos taken). The path is circular and eventually crosses over the aforementioned stream before heading back in the opposite direction to bring you back to a clearing on your left where you can see Beaulieu House in the background. Turn off the path here and you are brought back to the small, narrow bridge mentioned earlier. We call this the walk in the Garlic Forest, as one Easter we did this walk and there were lots of little white flowers, the petals of which can be eaten and have the most amazing taste of garlic!! It is not terribly long and was done by our young boy when he was 3.5 years old. However, I really think it is worth walking if you are anywhere near.
  • very good
