  • A beautiful place to spend the day for young and old. There is a picnic area with playground beside it and toilets, all overlooked by the large ruin of Woodstock House. The woodland walk contains a display of very old, mature trees dating from as far back as the 1700's with beauty and character that will take your breath away. Having enjoyed the rose garden and walled garden walks you can enjoy quality coffee or tea in the ornate conservatory.
  • We spent few hours walking the gardens today and all family absolutely loved it. Great photo opportunities and great place to spend time with a family. The gardens provides neverending chances of spotting rare plants all over the place. The cafe is a nice spot to chill out, and the nearby swing lets parents get some time off. Picnic area and playground made a perfect place to wrap up the trip and make kids extra calm with tiredness for the journey home. Generally would recommend visiting Woodstock Gardens to everyone, especially on a nice, sunny day.
  • One of if not the most tranquil an beautiful places in the world.spent hours walking around relaxing an takin 100's of photos. So much to see
  • Great place to spend the day. Just have the 4 euro in coins for the car park as you leave because it doesn't take notes.
  • Amazing walks around beautiful gardens ...kids loved it places to sit and have a picnic
