The building is beloved for its Diocletian windows, 19th-century terraced gardens, and Rococo plasterwork ceilings, which are considered to be some of the best in the country. Tour this historic home and walk through its lush gardens, or visit to attendĀ one of the site's many events, such as music festivals and garden theater performances.

  • I had an amazing day here. Lovely place to visit and lots to see. Beautiful views of the lake. Animal and child friendly with a cafe and gift shop on site too. Nice food at reasonable prices šŸ‘Œ
  • Great scenery and walks weren't too long. Was disappointed there was no tour guide especially for the house and would of love to have seen more of the house but overall the grounds is what makes it, perfect for families
  • The house and gardens were beautiful. I was surprised there was no guide on the walk around the house. The grounds and walk was beautiful. The coffee shop let it down. Staff not pleasant and food was cold.
  • A lovely place to visit if in the Mullingar area. Great cake but a little bit on the expensive side.
  • Beautiful scenery nice and peaceful lake right beside it and beautiful restaurants / coffee shop
